This team was formed in 2013, and this year it is being renamed from the "Spirit Dragons" to the "Mixed Ability Dragons".  We are launching the second decade of this team with an expansion and partnership with the Mixed Ability Sport international organization. We are also encouraging family members and friends to join the team.  

May 17 Update:  We decided to delay the start date from June 3 to June 10th due to the availability of coaches, and to provide an extra week to recruit team members.

Spirit Dragons

This is the fifth year for this team. Join us and spend your summer months enjoying the paddling, camaraderie, and fresh air on waterfront that comes with this team. New this year is monthly video review - where we take video of team paddling and can look at it later to identify areas where the team can improve. This is an invaluable tool to becoming a better team. We have two dedicated co-captains identified very early on to help plan for an amazing year!

Program Details for 2023 


This team practices once a week for 3 weeks, on Saturdays, June 10/17/23, from 12:30 to 2:45 PM at Outer Harbour.  The team will then race at the 21st Canada Day Regatta on Toronto Island.

See the Practice Site Page for more details on the practice location.  There are many advantages to this new site, including free unlimited parking, cleaner air and water, a bigger bay to train on with less congestion and other boats, and more room on land to warm up and get ready for practice.

If you have any questions, or need assistance registering, please don't hesitate to contact Tim MacFarlane at 647-971-7332 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
