POBS Alumni Dragon Boat Team Formation – Info Session

March 19, 2022

Come out, meet POBS alumni, staff and board members as we explore forming a Dragon Boat team to enter local races on the river  this June and October.

We are thrilled to have Outward Bound alumnus Dave Kunz, past president of Schuylkill Paddlers, on board as our coach and mentor! Dave will give a presentation on Dragon Boat racing, go over what is involved and a suggested practice schedule, and answer any questions.

The goal is to form a team, have a few practice sessions in May, and enter a race in June. If there’s enough interest, we can keep it going through the summer and enter the Philadelphia International Dragon Boat Festival in October.

Even if you are just curious , come on out and join us for refreshments and a peek inside a Philadelphia Boathouse!
