Join a Team

  • Discover which team is right for you! AZDBA currently has 11 teams and each team is unique in leadership, competitiveness, and community.
  • All of our teams welcome new members and will help you to be the best paddler you can be!
  • 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 various team coaches, and ultimately choose the right team(s) for you.
