One of the most competitive, enthusiastic and diversified dragon boat paddling teams in Arizona is the Arizona Dragon Riders team founded in 2008. We are very proud of our achievements and the hard work of many people connected with the team that has led to race success. In all dragon boat race events, we may compete as competitive AZ Dragon Riders mixed teams and/or AZ Dragon Riders women team (also known as the Diva Dragon Riders team) and/or AZ Dragon Riders men team (also known as the Turbo Dragon Riders). We’ve brought home Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in tough races in USA.
