The Arizona SnapDragons are an AZDBA team for youth paddlers. Our team focuses on fun, teamwork, kindness and making friends. Ages 8 to 18 can join! You’ll have a great time learning how to paddle, making new friends, competing for medals, and exercising by getting outside on the beautiful Tempe Town Lake. Practicing during the sunset hours of 5:30 – 7:30 allows us all to sleep in in the morning! Bring the kids for a unique exercise that allows them to be dragons and travel to compete in races!

Join the SnapDragons today for a fun exercise, a unique sport, and team building experience on Tempe Town Lake!
