Welcome to the 2022 Houston Heat Dragon Boat Season!!! Everyone is welcome to join us on Saturday, March 12th as we officially start our season. If you have never dragon boated before, now is the perfect time to give it a try.  We will have paddles and PFDs for y’all, so just come and have fun.

Registration is 11-11:30 am, followed by a team warm-up and stretch. The coaches will provide instruction on proper technique, after which you’ll be able to try it out on the boat during 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 a change of clothing.

After the Kick-Off, we welcome everyone to join us for a late lunch/drinks at Willie’s Grill & Icehouse (945 Hwy 6, Sugar Land, TX 77478).  Please note that lunch is not covered by HH.
