Team Selection

Each year, the team aims for a squad of 25 paddling members. With a dragon boat normally carrying 22 including the drummer (caller) and sweep (steerer), a degree of rotation is required for training and regattas. The Coach and team captain will decide regatta participation based on performance, fitness and training attendance.
