Since 1997, the Stratford Dragon Boat Club has initiated the high school dragon boat programs for Central Secondary School, St. Michael Catholic Secondary School and Northwestern Secondary School. As an introduction to the sport of dragon boating, the physical education departments have added dragon boating to their programs. The club has provided the equipment and expertise at no expense to the schools. It is the belief of the Stratford Dragon Boat Club that the future of the sport depends on the youth of Stratford. |
The Stratford Dragon Boat Club has Junior Crew that practices on Mondays and Wednesdays at 4-5pm. They practice all summer and participate at races. The Rotary Club of Stratford has generously donate practice time for this crew. Anyone interested joining between the ages of 11 to 18 should contact Ken Gene.
