Parks and Recreation Department Program

Oyster Point Dragons (OPD) is pleased to partner with the City of South San Francisco and the Town of Colma to offer Dragon Boating for Beginners classes throughout the year through their respective Parks and Recreation Department. This program is part of OPD's community involvement by offering classes to the general public, city residents and non-residents, for a nominal fee.  The program started in 2017 and was a big success.  A few of the Parks & Rec students even joined OPD as full members after the sessions ended.

Course Description – Dragon Boating began over 2,500 years ago. Its popularity has grown immensely over the past 30 years. Today, recreational paddlers as well as staunch competitors engage in the sport of dragon boating around the world. Now, you can try it too and paddle in a 40-foot long, 20-seat Dragon Boat. You will learn basic paddling techniques, water safety, fitness preparation, teamwork, and the organizational structure of a Dragon Boat team. Each session includes three 90- minute classes with land and water training. Participants who complete the entire session will receive a Certificate of Completion. Come join the Oyster Point Dragons (OPD) as we paddle on the Bay. Students have the option of joining OPD as a full member after completion of the session.
