The next tiller training classroom session is TBA.
Effective January 1, 2013, please use the new provisional membership waiver form to track new members until they join DragonSports using the new membership application and waiver form.

Construction on Portland's newest bridge, between the Marquam and Ross Island Bridges, began July 2011.
All river traffic, including DragonSports dragon boats and outrigger canoes, are subject to no-wake zones and should stay within the 400-foot-wide channel in the center of the river as shown here.
For more information on this project, please visit the TriMet website.
Looking for information on the Portland Rose Festival Dragon Boat Races? You're close...
Many DragonSports Teams participate in Rose Festival, but the races are organized by the Portland-Kaohsiung Sister City Association, not DragonSports.
Please visit the PKSCA website for more information.
If you'd like to get a leg-up on Rose Festival, DragonSports Teams practice year-round in Hong Kong-style dragon boats with DragonSports USA. Email us and we'll try to connect you with a team.
