Collingwood Dragon Boat and Canoe Club

It's All About Character!

We have made some additions and changes to our membership structure for 2019 and we are very excited about it! We now offer more options for membership so that our members can pick and choose the programs they want to participate in.

Basic Annual Membership - $35.00

Each program requires a purchase of our Basic Annual Membership for $35.00 but this can also be a stand alone membership. This basic membership allows members to have dock access privileges should they want to bring their own boats down to paddle and to maintain a social membership with the club. There are no structured programs offered with this membership.

Sidelaunchers Dragon Boat Team - $200.00 (plus $35.00 Basic Annual Membership)

The Sidelaunchers are the CDBCC's dragon boat team. We are made up of men and women of all ages and abilities, who practice together, on water, for one hour on Mondays and Wednesdays, 6-7pm, May/June through September! The cost for the program is $200 plus the $35.00 membership fee. New members are always welcome, and no experience is needed. We will even provide the life jackets and the paddles!

Open Paddle - $165.00 (plus $35.00 Basic Annual Membership)

This program runs on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30, and Sunday mornings from 10 am to 12pm, from June to late August. We encourage all members to participate in open paddle as it's a great way to meet other members and get out on the water in whatever boat you'd like. This is a semi-structured paddle evening where all boats are available for use with guidance from our coaching staff and experienced members.

Masters Program - $200 (plus $35 Basic Annual Membership)

This program is directed towards adult members (25 +) who are interested in learning how to paddle and train in flat water canoes and kayaks. There is the opportunity for out of town regattas and the program is run by an NCCP certified coach. Technique coaching and work out programs are provided. Please email for more information. Summer practice schedule TBD, this program typically runs at the same time as our Open Paddle program.

Youth Racing Programs - $300 (plus $35 Basic Annual Membership)

These programs are geared towards our Junior and High Performance members. Spring practice schedule TBD. Practices are daily in July and August. For more information and a detailed summer schedule please email

Family Membership – $625.00 (plus $35.00 Basic Annual Membership per family member)

This membership is for immediate family members who want to join as a family and participate in Open Paddle sessions, which are included. New for 2018 - registration in the Dragon Boat Program is included with this membership.
