Before practicing with us, you must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and it must be at least two weeks since the final vaccination. If you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been diagnosed with COVID-19, we ask that you not attend practice until you have a negative COVID-19 test, it has been 10 days since symptom onset, and at least 24 hours with no fever (without use of fever-reducing medication). You must obtain clearance from your doctor and the team leadership before returning to practice.
The Oakland Renegades Dragon Boat Club was born April 1st, 2009, started as a collaborative effort by the Oakland Parks and Recreation Department and a group of paddlers from the dragon boat community. Our goal is to promote the sport of dragon boat racing, provide paddling opportunities to the community (including youth groups and schools), compete at the many races during the year, and to have as much fun as possible doing it!
We invite the public to come join us for practice sessions at the Jack London Aquatic Center. The first lesson is free and if you decide to join our team, the fees are modest. You don’t need any experience or equipment as we provide the paddles and life jackets and we welcome all ages and fitness levels.
