The calendar below shows our scheduled practices, both on-water at Long Beach and/or at the South El Monte Training Center, as well as the races we plan to attend for this season.
For our practices, please make sure you arrive early enough to participate in warm-up exercises, as they're essential for prepping your body for paddling, as well as preventing injuries.
This practice schedule is subject to change without notice (although the committee will make best efforts to inform members of any changes). HOWEVER, please check this page regularly.

Here they are - X-Generals' really snazzy, super-high production value training videos. Watch them, and they'll magically transform you into a super-duper paddler through optical osmosis....
Don't have time to watch the above video in one sitting? Don't worry, we've got you covered by dissecting the video into easily digestible segments. Painful for the video, awesome for you!
As with all sports, Dragon Boat Racing has inherent risks (we do paddle in the ocean, after all). SCDBC and XG require all paddlers to complete and submit the following e-forms prior to getting into the boat.
