With the off-season coming to a close, Houston Heat’s coaching committee has decided to head over to Tempe, Arizona to kick off the race season. The Arizona Dragon Boat Association has done a great job year-to-year growing and running this event with over 100 teams racing in different divisions at the festival in 2018.
This is usually the first race of the season for many competitive teams from the West Coast, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland, as well as from Canada.
Early bird team registration is at the end of January. At this point, the coaching committee would like to see if there are enough paddlers interested in this race.
Event: Tempe 16th Annual Dragon Boat Festival
Location: Tempe, Arizona
Dates: March 30 – 31, 2019 (TWO-DAY EVENT)
The Paddler Fee for this event will either be $35 to $40 HH Member ($60 to $65 for non members), depending on when Houston Heat registers.
If you are interested in paddling with Houston Heat for this event, add your name to the signup list below. If we have enough interest by Monday, January 28th, we will register Houston Heat at the early bird rate. Otherwise, we need to make the decision by February 18th on whether or not to enter a team.
