  9. F.A.Q • Do I need experience to be part of this? • No, as long as you are willing to learn and can hold a paddle, you’re in! • Do I need my own paddle for practice and races? • No, we provide everything you need to practice and there will be equipment at regattas • Do I need to be able to swim? • No, you will be wearing PFDs at all times. • I heard that you need to be super fit and be able to complete an triathlon to join? • No! Dragon boat is a sport for all fitness levels and ages. You will definitely notice an improvement in physical fitness though! • Can my spouse and/or child(ren) also do this? • As long as we have spots and they are above the age of 16 then absolutely! We have seen mother/daughter/father/son paddle on the same boat numerous times! • Will you be the envy of all other faculty, staff and denizens of UW? • Definitely. website: | email :
