San Diego Dragon Boat Team
Since its inception, the San Diego Dragon Boat Team (SDDBT) has developed in many ways amassing an impressive history of success at all levels including national and world championships. We have grown by adding other crews, including our first women’s crew in 1992. This crew won silver medals in Singapore and Hong Kong at their first major international competitions. The club has since added a women’s cancer-survivor program (Team Survivor) and a collegiate program with students from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). A youth program is also under development.
TEAM Survivor San Diego was formed in May of 2003 and is the local affiliate of the national organization of TEAM Survivor. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we provide free group exercise and support programs for women who have a present or past diagnosis of cancer. These programs, can offer women survivors of San Diego County, the opportunity to improve their fitness and strength, build an emotional support network, and may also help to counteract fatigue and treatment side effects. This in turn, may help these women to gain more self confidence and feel better about their bodies. To learn more please click here.
