2019 Dragon Boat and Outrigger Camps

2019 Newport Beach Outrigger Camp

March 18-22, 2019

About the camp:

Come enjoy sunny Southern California in this comprehensive five day camp focusing on outrigger technique.

This camp will set a foundation for your outrigger paddling with a comprehensive and strategic emphasis on paddling technique and training practices. We will paddle eight workouts during the camp with guidance from top outrigger coaches. On Wednesday we will paddle earlier in the morning with the rest of the day off to rest our weary bodies and explore the area. Technique will be reviewed with two video sessions.  Of the eight paddling sessions two will be small boats and six in big boats.

This camp is geared to intermediate to advanced paddlers of both sprint and distance disciplines.  Paddlers will be grouped to participate with those of a similar skill level.

For accomodation we recommend renting a house and sharing a car with other participants.  We have found VRBO.com has many great rental places (Balboa Island, Lido Island and Balboa Peninsula are all awesome locations). Please send us an email and we can introduce you to other paddlers if you would like.

2019 Arizona Dragon Boat Camp and Festival

Camp: March 25-29, Festival: March 30-31

This camp is full. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Kick start the 2019 season with this camp in sunny Tempe, Arizona.

Right Angle Performance coaches and some hard work on your part will lay the foundation for your season and seasons to come; while having fun!

This camp has a strong technical emphasis with eight on-water workouts and a video review session mid-week.  As racing is the perfect way to motivate, test and solidify what we learn in training, this camp culminates with racing at the Arizona Dragon Boat Festival, also on Tempe Town Lake, for those wishing to compete.

On the out-skirts of Phoenix, Tempe is easy to get to and offers warm, dry heat, great restaurants, golf courses (for non-paddling companions), hiking and many tourist attractions.

For accomodation we recommend either renting a house and sharing a car with other participants or staying at a nearby suites hotel.  For the former, we have found VRBO.com has many great rental places but you’ll want to book early as they can fill up fairly far in advance due to baseball spring training.  For the latter, a nearby hotel is Hospitality Suite Resort (http://hospitalitysuites.com).  It is 1.3 miles from Tempe Lake – approx 25 min walk, 5 mins by car.  This hotel can be booked online with or without breakfast  (enter discount code “suites” for a small discount) or a weekly rate without breakfast and with housekeeping twice in the week can be booked for a lower price by calling them at 1-800-445-5115.  For closer hotels, there are some walking distance away that provide breakfast but do not have kitchens (Baymont Inn, Tempe’s Best Western).

*Please send us an email and we can introduce you to other paddlers to share with if you would like.
