Harbord Village


The year 2018 is the sixth year for this team centered on the Harbord Village community which has been Rusty Dragon's founder Tim MacFarlane's home for 35 years. While recruiting will focus on registering paddlers who live or work in the area, it is not restricted in who can join the team. NO experience is required in any way. Our coach will take you from never having sat in a dragon boat to racing on Canada Day. The objective is for this to be a fun experience for everyone (men or women of ANY age, and young adults aged 14 and up).


NOTE: This team began recruiting much later than other teams, so please register and don't read anything into how many have registered so far.

A recruiting drive via various methods will be underway soon (FaceBook, E-mail, MeetUps, etc). Last year we were short paddlers and this year we want to recruit early and really encourage new paddlers to join the team and experience the thrill of dragon boat racing.  Coach Caroline Cook is returning and captain Kate Lushington and manager Tim MacFarlane will be working hard to make this a great program through May and June, and then racing on Canada Day on Toronto Island.  No experience is necessary, and anyone of any fitness level is welcome (even if you don't think you have a fitness level)!

The decision has been made that this team will proceed with recruiting and preparing for their first practice on Thursday May 10th. This team WILL NOT BE CANCELLED and we urge interested paddlers to register. An recruiting drive via various methods is underway (FaceBook, E-mail, MeetUps, etc). We will have guest paddlers from other teams join us until we have a full regular crew.This practice time slot is also open to guest paddlers from other teams (Motley Crew, Pink Crusaders, U of T Library of Conquest, One Gorgeous Boat, MTCS Oars to Discover, LP Dragons, OPS Diversity EANG Dragons, etc) who want the extra practice. We are reducing the drop-in fee from $15 to $5 for this time slot for paddlers on other teams. The MeetUp fee is still $15 as the club overhead is not covered for them as they have not yet registered with an existing team (whose registration fee includes a small club overhead component).
