Dragon Boat Team Building

Lanier Canoe and Kayak Club is the perfect place to host a paddling camp!  With our location, our water, our facilities and our coaches; not much else compares.  See what members of the DC Dragon Boat Club has to say regarding their camp here 29 – 31 March:

“I feel that I learned quite a lot from this camp. I know that myself and some of my teammates would definitely be interested in training with you again!”

“Great venue and Coaching staff was inspirational and informational. Staff was very knowledgeable. I especially appreciated the combined experience with paddling at all levels.”

“Staff was in tune to the importance of explaining and demonstrating concepts in several ways to accommodate different learning styles.”

“…regards to explaining a concept in several different ways. Jim is quite astute in terms of noticing and providing constructive feedback to paddlers on even some of the smaller details of the stroke that will likely translate to big improvements in power and efficiency.”

“Jim and Charlie coach as a team was extremely valuable in getting both supportive commentary and in pushing paddlers to improve, as well as getting different explanations.” “Really appreciated the attention to structuring the sequence of the camp, i.e. video review set up, discussion, then time back on the water to practice what we learned. Also, THANK YOU steerers, they did a wonderful job, and we appreciated the extra coaching during some of the pieces :)”

Let us plan a good camp for your team! We have Corporate Team Building opportunities that will push and energize your team to new heights as well as hosting dragon boat teams from across the spectrum of abilities to help you achieve your goals!

LCKC hosts two racing events each year where teams of paddlers from businesses and organizations battle it out for top honors. The Atlanta Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival is held in September of each year and attracts thousands of visitors from the greater Atlanta area and beyond.

Update: 2018 RESULTS ARE IN!

Important Upcoming Events This September

A Letter From Coach Jim...

As most of you are aware, September is the Month of the Dragon here at the Club.  Our largest annual fundraising event, the 23rd Annual Hong Kong Atlanta Dragon Boat Festival is 8th Sept with the months of preparation almost completed...and we need everyone to help out, all hands on deck!

Directly following this is the largest paddling event to hit the venue since 2003 Sprint Worlds.  Beginning with the first day of practice 9th Sept, the ICF Dragon Boat World Championships are right here on our home course!

The park, boat ramp and such are all closed for this week as with any world championships security is tight.

Lanier Team USA paddlers include: Aaron Dickson, Alec Wilson, Allen Marsh, Andrew Surles, AnneBlanchard, Caitlin Marsh, Caleb Copper, Cannie Colburn (Ash), Charlie Tilse, Corban Martin, Daniel Liu, Dave Bittenbender, Drew Deppe, Enoy  Chanlyvong,  Ethan Deppe, Ethan Jackson, Ethan Palmer, Jackson Hickerson, Jim O'Dell, Josh Burchardt, Laurie Moore, Lucas Pitts, Maggie Bowmar, Nate Boyd, Olivia Clark, Paige Farley, Sean Allen, Tina Young, Vladimir Samoylenko.

You will find them all in competition beginning 13th Sept through the 16th Sept!

Our Olympic Hopes paddlers will be traveling to one of my favorite cities, Poznan, Poland for that important race.  These Canoe paddlers are Edward Surles, Kevin Rochester and Natalie Brunson.  They will also be racing the very same weekend.

Also on the same weekend - ICF really knows how to plan - are the Pan American qualifiers in Nova Scotia.  Our athletes there include Aaron Mullican, Nik Miller, Owen Farley-Klacik and Stanton Collins.

So many opportunities all in one month!  Proof that the training here at LCKC is truly world-class.

Feeling that paddling itch that needs to be scratched?  Join the fun and hard work here at LCKC.

Paddles UP!!!

- Coach Jim
