About the Event
We've planned the best day ever – a very special day you can't often do with the American Dragons, an award-winning dragon boating team first launched by AAS in 2005. This day is perfect for families, singles, couples... you name it, everybody will love it!
Adults and kids 12+ can give paddling a try out on the Kallang River, paddling near the iconic sites of Singapore. Find out why this sport is so popular and what it's like to work in unison as a team to the thrilling sound of the beating drum.
Back on land, we will have some delicious Shake Shack food waiting and Ice Cold Beer will be on hand with some bevvies for a fun picnic as we listen to some great tunes.
It will truly be the perfect Singapore day learning about a really cool Asian sport!
Note: As per the overarching dragon boating committee guidelines, children 11 and under are *NOT* allowed in the water. But no worries! They'll still get instruction while sitting on a beached boat.

ABOUT THE AMERICAN DRAGONS
The American Dragons are now a serious presence at all major Singapore paddling events as well as some overseas races. The team has been repeat champions of the International Business Community (Expat) league as well as Women’s and Master’s (age 40 and up) National Champions in Singapore dragon boating. In addition, several medal/cup-winning results have been earned in overseas dragon boat and outrigger canoe races. Team members come from many backgrounds and all nationalities are welcome. No prior paddling experience is necessary, though competitive paddling is a very intense activity so a good level of fitness is needed. They provide all equipment and training.
