Welcome to the 2019 Houston Heat Dragon Boat Season!!! Everyone is welcome to join us on Saturday, February 16th as we officially start our season. If you have never dragon boated before, now is the perfect time to give it a try.
Registration is 8-8:30am, followed by a team warm up and stretch. The coaches will provide an instruction on proper technique, after which you’ll be able to try it out on the boat during a practice with additional instruction from a coach. After practice, there will be a short information session regarding Houston Heat, membership, practices, and races. Yes, you will get wet during practice, so we recommend that you bring a towel and change of clothing. Restrooms are available at the park to change.
After the Kick-Off, we welcome everyone to join us for lunch at Fuddruckers (2040 NASA Road 1, Houston 77058). Please note that lunch is not covered by HH.
