One of the most Competitive, enthusiastic and diversified Dragon Boat paddling teams in Arizona is the ARIZONA DRAGON RIDERS team. Starting in 2008, we have gone from a few interested paddlers to the largest dragon boat team in Arizona. We are very proud of our achievements and the hard work of many people connected with the club has led to race success. For 2015, the Riders mixed team won 1 Gold and 2 Bronzes; The Diva Dragon Riders won 1 Silver.
In all Dragon Boat Race Events, we may compete as competitive AZ Dragon Riders mixed teams and/or AZ Dragon Riders women team (Also known as the DIVA DRAGON RIDERS team) and/or AZ Dragon Riders men team (Also known as the TURBO DRAGON RIDERS)
