Welcome to THE

Rusty Dragons

NOTE:  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our team programs are being adjusted to remove practices and regattas that can no longer be held.  We continue to monitor the situation closely, and all team captains and coaches are meeting weekly via Zoom to assess changes.  We take the health of our paddlers seriously.  


We are now offering a Virtual Program over the 8 weeks in May and June (Cardio, Strength, Yoga, and Paddle coaching).  This is available to ALL registered paddlers.  Registration is still OPEN for all of our teams - but we are NOT accepting any payments at this time until much later when we are able to make firmer decisions. 


Check each team's page for details by using the "TEAMS" drop-down menu at the top of this page and selecting your team of interest.  At this point, ALL practices and regattas from May 1 to July 1 are cancelled.  We are also in the process of issuing partial refunds to all paddlers who previously paid a team's full registration fee.

All teams need paddlers - no experience required!
