Training Opportunities


Want to Learn What Dragon Boating is all About?

Learn to paddle in Dragon Boat 101 sessions held on beautiful Lake Peachtree. Everyone is invited. Sessions begin on Monday mornings & Thursday evenings in spring 2024 at All Children’s Park.

What’s most exciting is the growth of this sport at the grassroots level. Dragon Boat Racing is great fun and accessible to anyone, young (must be 14 years) or old, of all abilities. Participants at any level of fitness who can sit unassisted and hold a paddle, can quickly adapt to and develop a passion for this sport. No experience is required. The Rotary Club of Peachtree City provides experienced coaches to ensure your paddling experience is safe and fun.

Upon arrival at Picnic Park/Lake Peachtree you will get your equipment. Paddle Sessions are free. Donations are welcome to cover boat maintenance.

Please RSVP so that the coaches know how many boats to get ready for our paddlers or for any schedule changes – check the event schedule on Facebook @ptcdragonboats.
