Please refer to this page often as race day approaches. We will provide all of the resources that you need to successfully manage your dragon boat team for racing at the Delta Dragon Boat Races.

Relay all pertinent updates to your team on race day (i.e. schedule changes and race progression)
Ensure that your team members know when and where to be throughout the day
Assist High Five by ensuring that your team is following the rules (i.e. no alcohol consumption on Race Day!)
Rosters and Waivers
Team Roster HIGH FIVE will provide an email with a cloud document link to all Team Captains. Each Team Captain must populate the roster with paddler, drummer and steer person names. Once the cloud document is populated, the Team Captains will be able to view who has signed a waiver. High Five and Team Captains will have real time access to this document Please have your final team roster completed no later than Monday, August 24, 2019.
Online Waiver The online waiver of liability must be filled out by each and every team member who will be getting into a dragon boat during practice or on race day. The completed waivers should be submitted no later than Wednesday, August 26, 2020 Please contact each team member individually, send them the link below and advise them that this task MUST be completed in order to practice or race!
TEAM PRACTICE SCHEDULE COMING SOON! Each team's registration includes a 1-hour practice session. Novice teams are highly encouraged to have a team practice prior to the event. It is not mandatory to have all of your rostered paddlers in attendance, but the more that can participate, the better your team may do on race day. Please arrive 15-20 minutes early to your practice session. As the event date approaches, we will have the practice schedule below. Please select a time and day that works best for your team and email your first and second choice requests to Practice@highfivedragonboat.com..
Additional practices may be purchased based on availability at a rate of $100 per session.
