... Established in 2001 and based at Lake Meridian in Kent, Washington. We are an all-volunteer non-profit 501(c)3 organization and our Mission is to promote the tradition and sport of dragon boating for all people. The KDBA's Vision is to promote physical fitness, teamwork, and good sportsmanship along with elements of fun and camaraderie in a competitive and supportive environment.
We are a dedicated group of women and men of all ages and all walks of life united by our commitment to each other and our shared love of the sport of dragon boating.
Our full season runs from January to October. Everyone is invited to join Winter Warriors practices from January to March. The regular portion of the season kicks into gear after daylight savings when we move towards practicing three days a week. We compete in regattas throughout the season in different areas of the Pacific Northwest including British Columbia and occassionally in California, Nevada and Arizona.
