Join a Team

The Arizona Dragon Boat Association currently has 9 active teams. Each team is unique in leadership, competitiveness and community. We encourage you to discover which team is right for your personal needs. All of our teams welcome new members and will help shape you to be the best paddler you can be!

  • An AZDBA membership entitles you to paddle with as many teams as you want, as often as you want, as long as there’s a spot in the boat – even if you haven’t designated that team as “your team”.  This is a great way to get to know other members of the association, engage with the various team coaches and ultimately choose the right team for you.

Learn more about our various teams below. Individual contact information can be found on each team’s page.
