LCKC offers a Dragon Boat club membership for those who are interested in a longer-term training program. LCKC is a feeder program of the United States National Dragon Boat Team. In fact, many LCKC paddlers have competed in the World Dragon Boat Championships – including eleven in 2014 alone. The club participates in regional regattas with an eye toward international events and a goal of having as many as possible compete with Team USA at the next World Championships.

Athletes can sign up through a Dragon Boat Membership which includes two practices per week and the opportunity to race in an LCKC boat at the Gainesville-Hall Dragon Boat Challenge and the Atlanta Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival.  Practices are held March 1st to October 31st, 2017, from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and 10:30 a.m. – noon on Saturdays.  Membership for the team is only $175.

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!!!
