    Raffles Canoeing transitioned into Raffles Dragon Boating in 2017.

    Dragon boating is a sport new to Raffles Institution and just entering its second year. On top of all the tough trainings, we have also had to face challenges unique to a developing CCA as we try to find our footing in this unfamiliar environment. It is through these struggles that our team has turned from a group of strangers into a tight-knit family that supports each other no matter what. As a sport founded on teamwork, our belief and trust in each other has been paramount to our team’s success.

    If you are willing to put in the effort and work with the rest of your team to reach greater heights, then Raffles Dragon Boating warmly welcomes you to come join us!
