This year we were delighted to enter The Youth Event at The Bradford Dragon Boat Festival with our first ever Youth Team.
We are focused on youth development at the club and encourage our Youth members to join us for our weekly training sessions. They work hard along side, and sometimes along with, the adult team on training days.
Competing in the festival this year gave the newly formed Youth Team something to strive for and gave them a taster of competitive racing. Little did we know that at their first taste of racing they would smash it out of the park!!!

It was a great evening for all. The sun was out and our newly formed team had great camaraderie with each other and fellow teams applauding the competing teams after each race. Our fastest time in the heats was 1:10:47 and we were delighted to come 1st and win the senior final heat. See the Youth Evening Results HERE
We can't wait for more 2020 events for our Youth Team to be involved with and we welcome our first ever Youth Team Captain Angus Bell and Youth Team Vice Captain Billy Spence!
