    Raffles Canoeing transitioned into Raffles Dragon Boating in 2017. Dragon boating is similar to canoeing in terms of training, team building and the nature of the sport. The tough and relentless trainings will mould you to be stronger, tougher and just as passionate about dragon boating as we all are about canoeing. Besides preparing for the Dragonboat competitions, other experiences include the 1-Star and 2-Star certification courses, as well as try-outs in canoe-polo and race boats like the Kayaks and Canoes.

    There are no prerequisites needed to join this sport. There is no one body type that is more favoured, or personality type. All we are looking for is the attitude to never give up and a willingness to work hard, we promise you will not regret joining this team.
