Pottstown Dragon Warriors
To encourage Pottstown area adults and youth to pursue physical and mental fitness through paddling, teamwork, setting goals and self-improvement. To provide others the opportunity to better themselves.
The Dragon Boat Program started in 2013 as a competitive women’s team composed of CrossFit Pottstown members and other local community members. Over the last few years, the Pottstown Dragon Warriors has evolved into a mixed competitive team of women and men.
Pottstown Dragon Warriors competes yearly in dragon boat races at locations such as Baltimore, Washington DC, Bucks County, Cooper River and Mercer New Jersey, This competitive team is a diverse group of individuals whose main goal is to increase positive community engagement, get fit, and have fun!!
Interested in paddling
The Pottstown Dragon Warriors now practices year-round, thanks to erg equipment, which simulates paddling, and an actual paddle pool located in the Armory at 263 King Street, Pottstown, PA. Starting in May, the dragon boats will be on the Schuylkill River and Marsh Creek practicing for upcoming races.
Throughout the Paddling season, community members are welcome to join us for an “Open Paddle,” a fun, family boating activity. The sessions are offered free-of-charge and open to everyone. Organizations are also encouraged to reserve a session for their employees.
It takes team work in order to move a dragon boat forward in an effective, efficient manner. A dragon boat provides a unique way of teaching individuals how to work together in order to accomplish one common goal. Everyone learns how to contribute and take an active role in the responsibility of the boat and its destiny. Dragon boat paddling is a team-building tool used by many organizations in the greater Philadelphia area. Now, the same opportunity is available right here in downtown Pottstown.
