Prompt and early payment guarantees a spot on the boat, and helps us greatly with our administration. Spots are generally available on a first come-first serve basis.
If the COVID situation worsens the season needs to be cancelled, we will issue a full refund to paddlers.
Refund requests must be submitted in writing. For requests submitted no later than 7 days before the first practice of the program, the Club will issue full refunds (less a $50.00 administration fee). For requests submitted up to the day of the first practice, 50% refunds (less a $50.00 administration fee) will be issued. There are no refunds after the first practice of every program.
In situations where a member must resign from the team for extenuating circumstances (for example, serious injury), a pro-rated reimbursement less a $50.00 administration fee may be issued, subject to approval by the Club Executive.
Dragon boating is a SAFE and FUN team sport. The simple safety rules we follow will be explained to all paddlers at the start of the season, and they must be adhered to at all times. This is also a team sport that prides itself in its sportsmanship and in its support of local communities and festivals. It is also important that registered members attend every practice that they can, and it is expected that the coach be notified in advance (where possible) if a practice is going to be missed. This is a team sport, and a full boat is one of the keys to a productive practice.
