Dragon Boat wants YOU!

Hey everyone! It’s that time of the year!
WE’RE RECRUITING FOR OUR FIRST SEASON AS A THUNDERBIRDS SPORT CLUB!

We will be having three trial practices open to everyone on September 25, 27, and 30! During these practices you will be introduced to the coaches and will be taught the basics of paddling. You will be partnered with a current UBC Thunder paddler each practice so they can help you with your technique.

After the week of trial practices, you will then need to choose if you would like to try out for the AMS (UBC Thunder) or TSC (UBC Thunderbirds SC) team.
***Please let us know if you do not know what these are or would like to know what each of these teams entail. It is important you know the difference!***

Once you have indicated which team you are trying out for, you will be invited to participate in two practices separated by four or five days. Coaches will be recording you for evaluation. After these two tryout practices, complete emails will be sent out to those who pass the first round of tryouts. This process repeats for a second round of tryouts. During the third round of tryouts you will be invited to four practices separated by two or three days for final selections. This time the AMS and TSC boats will be on the water at the same time. Final selections will be made after this third round is complete. **BOTH NEW AND CURRENT PADDLERS WILL BE GOING THROUGH THE SAME EVALUATION

Please visit us on Imagine day (TOMORROW, Sep 6) at Main Mall (fountain) and/or Clubs Day in the NEST (Sep 21-23) to give us your email so we can add you to our mailing list and will send you more detailed information regarding the trial practices and how tryouts will be run!

If you cannot visit us on these days you can message us over Facebook, or email us at dragonboat.sc@ubc.ca!

If you have any questions or concerns about anything at all please do not hesitate to ask!
