About the Baltimore Dragon Boat Club
The Baltimore Dragon Boat Club is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization formed in 2008 to advance the 2,500-year-old sport of dragon boat racing through competition, while generating its awareness in the Greater Baltimore area. Dragon Boating, the second fastest growing sport in the world, is on its way to becoming firmly established as a recreational and competitive team sport in Maryland. The Club welcomes paddlers of all ages to join in this recreational pursuit, develop healthy bodies and strong spirits through physical activity, and form strong friendships. The team trains Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays (April-October) at Under Armour’s Global Headquarters Marina and participates in a range of festivals and regattas in the Mid-Atlantic region.
