|What our club
The Edmonton Dragon Boat Racing Club is NOT
a profit organization. We are, pure and simply, Canadian amateur athletics.
We paddle and race together because we love
the sport, we love the sportsmanship, and we love the culture and camaraderie of being
around outgoing Canadians.
What we stand for
Dragon boat racing is a community sport...
it is an ancient tradition born from ancient villages of Chinese people banding together.
We at the EDBRC want to honour that
cultural heritage and that community intent. We also want to be excellent examples
of sportsmanship and patriotic Canadian pride.
The EDBRC stands for: fairness, integrity,
passion, loyalty, and friendship. We believe in preserving the culture of this ancient
Chinese sport. We also believe that culture and fun should be at the center of every
dragon boat race around the world.
Our members: although this sport is
originally a Chinese tradition, our membership is represented by every kind of person and
ethnic culture in Edmonton. As long as you are committed to practicing and being a
team player and sportsman, you are welcome at our club.
Our place in the community: As part of the commitment to the sport, the EDBRC asks for
volunteer time from its members: we offer services to the community as volunteer
coaches, steersmen, drummers, and race logisticians, and we provide this through our
members, who give of their own time without pay.
Our Partner: the EDBFA
The EDBRC partners with another non-profit
group: The Edmonton Dragon Boat Festival Association. The EDBFA is dedicated to hosting
and organizing the annual August Dragon Boat Races here in Edmonton.
