pdbc Fired Up!

PDBC Fired Up! is an intermediate performance program for athletes, both male and female, over the age of 50. Our goal is to be as competitive as possible with a commitment to developing skills together through year-round training. To be a member of this crew, athletes must have several years experience paddling in a dragon boat.

*Please note that this is an intermediate performance program so athletes must be selected to compete with us.
