As we follow the Olympics we all have one dream... for Dragon Boat to one day be part of the games. Now is the time for students to initiate this idea! At this intercollegiate dragon boat mix-and-mingle event, we hope to bring paddlers from all Ontario University teams together and to create a network of student paddlers.
As we build this student network to share knowledge and resources in the sport, the goal is to increase the competition within the University division. As the Universities becomes stronger and comes closer together (through social events, group fitness events..etc.), the long term goal is to cohesively vie the sport of Dragon Boating to be part of the OUA (Ontario University Athletics) or in other words, be a Varsity Sport. This can be made possible through the involvement in the Ontario Student Racing League organized by Dragon Boat Canada.
In the coming year, we are excited to introduce the Ontario Student Racing League. Certain dragon boat festivals that are organized in Ontario will participate in this League, including Milton, Pickering and Toronto Islands etc.. Results from these races will account for points towards your teams standing in the Canadian Student Racing League (formerly known as CURL). Top 3 teams in CSRL will be medalled at the National Dragon Boat Festival and the top team will be the recipient of title CSRL Champions.
To further the bonding of University Dragon Boat teams, this event will fundraise for a (for-fun) Ontario intercollegiate dragon boat team that will be raced in 2013! Further details will be announced at the event. We hope for full support from everyone in the dragonboating community and we look forward to seeing everyone that night!
