We paddle once a week at Bryson LaganSports on Saturday mornings at 8.45am from March to October, and during the winter months we continue our fitness regime with dry land training.
Our training caters for all levels of fitness and competence – we strive to improve everyone’s overall fitness and, while there is a competitive element to our training, everyone is encouraged to join in and train to their own level and abilities.
Our achievements to date
In 2016 we were placed first in the Chinese Welfare NI Dragon Boat Festival and came runner-up in the International Hong Kong Dragon Boat Regatta in Dublin.
We are looking forward to hosting the first ever Belfast Dragon Boat Regatta beside the Waterfront Hall on Saturday June 3rd, 2017, in which 21 dragon boat teams have registered to compete. Everyone is encouraged to come along and support this wonderful event!
Lagan Dragons has also entered a team in the 2018 International Breast Cancer Paddlers’ Commission Participatory Dragon Boat Festival in Florence, Italy, and many of our members are very excited about attending this.
