From the very beginning

The very first Houston Heat crew formed in the summer of 2006, specifically to head to Nationals in Tampa that same year!

With heart and perseverance, we went from the humble beginnings of forming a small dragon team in Houston to forging a path towards a culture that now expands over 10 dragon boat clubs and hundred of paddlers across Texas and its neighboring states. Now we are set to take on the world! “ – Jeff Gee
