Dragon Boat Team Practices

Practice Season: May 1st To September 30th

Paddles up!!!

The Dragon Boat Practice Season is scheduled to open on May 1, weather dependent. Once the Glenmore Reservoir has been declared opened by the City of Calgary, we’ll be calling for volunteers to help launch the dragon boats for the season.

On March 1, the online registrations will open. All teams must register a practice team to schedule times through CDBS between May and October.

Registered teams will be assigned a Team ID (PR##) and will be able to schedule practices through Society during the season. Important to note, we will try to schedule your team’s request as close to requested practice times as we cannot guarantee all requests.

All team members must also register and sign the online Paddler Registration / Waiver Form before they are allowed to paddle on water for the season.

Teams (local or out of town) looking to participate in the Calgary Dragon Boat Race & Festival can register starting April 1 for Early Bird Discount of $200 on team fees.. Teams have until June 11 to register and qualify for the Early Bird Discount. Registration deadline is July 23.


The Calgary Dragon Boat Society (CDBS) Town Hall Meeting should provide attendees (paddlers, volunteers, partners, or “the curious”, all are welcome) the latest news, information, resources and Q&A session about the sport of Dragon Boating in community of Calgary.. Town Hall Meetings are meant to provide an interactive and informative session for the attendees.
