PMPC will endeavour to put individuals into teams based on their individual requests relating to practice times, their availability and their level of commitment.
Each team should have a minimum of 20 paddlers, a steersperson, a drummer, plus 2 spares.
For safety and insurance reasons, everyone in the boat must be a member of PMPC.
Team changes and inclusions must be recorded and submitted to the club representative before the team goes on the water.
Teams must have at least 14 paddlers and a qualified steersperson in the boat to use the club dragon boat during their practice time.
PMPC encourages paddlers to purchase their own paddles and PFD's.
Each individual on a PMPC dragon boat team needs to be a club member of PMPC. Teams may also charge additional fees to cover such incidentals as coaching, entries, jerseys etc. These costs vary by team.
Club Fundraising - In addition to fees, PMPC invites each team to participate in a major fundraising event each year. These funds will go towards club development, maintenance, moorage, and other related club expenses.
AL-O-WETTERS DRAGON BOAT TEAM
Welcome to The Al-O-Wetter women's dragon boat team!
We are thrilled to be entering into our 11th year on the water!
WHO WE ARE
We consider ourselves a semi-competitive team comprising of women from all age groups. We give it our all during practices and races, and still have fun! Our goal is to strive for improvement as an individual paddler and as a team – whether in our weekly practices or in our team’s participation in a regatta.
We practice every Tuesday night from the beginning of April to September.
We strive to enter three regattas per year and the team as a whole decides on the events. Team members are required to enter into at least one regatta per season. The majority of regattas are held on Saturdays.
We are a newer team, and will practice on Monday and Wednesdays.
