AZDBA Community

We’re also involved off the water participating in community activities in and around Tempe, AZ. We partner with many outstanding organizations, including Arizona Disabled Sports, Adaptive Adventures, Ability360, and Wounded Warrior Project.

Join a Team!

Currently we have 11 active teams within our organization, and nearly every team welcomes new paddlers! We offer practice times every day except Fridays on Tempe Town Lake weekdays during the evening and weekends during the morning.

New paddlers are welcome to join us anytime to “test the waters” – and it’s FREE for your first 30 days!

Come see if dragon boating is a sport for you! After you get hooked, you can join the organization and paddle as often as you want. Our membership fees cover insurance, water time, docking, storage, equipment and much more – all wrapped into one convenient annual fee.
