And, in case you didn't already know, Dragon Boating is not just for fun. There are also other important facets to racing around in dragon boats.

 

Community

As a not-for-profit, Provincial Sport Organization, we take our Mission, Vision and Values to heart!  We work hard to develop the skills of athletes at all levels. We are unmatched by anyone or any organization in Manitoba to promote paddling as a way to enhance the lives of those who participate.

 

Safety

Yes, MPA makes safety our number one priority. We have an excellent reputation and superior safety record - second to none. We want to ensure that individuals, as well as teams complete their races in the safest manner possible. That can only be possible because of the training, knowledge and experience as well as the focus and dedication of our staff and volunteers!

 

Coaching

All teams entering our Dragon Boat events are coached by experienced paddlers who have competed nationally as well as internationally. We pride ourselves in the fact that our coaches know what it takes to work with the teams to reach their potential.

 

Charity

The MPA partners with the Canadian Cancer Society, Manitoba Division (CCS) to raise funds. The funds raised for the Canadian Cancer Society Dragon Boat Festivals in Manitoba support cutting edge cancer research to advance treatments, increase early diagnosis, clinical trials and hopefully develop a cure. The Society also provides community based programs and services such as our transportation service that support thousands of Manitoba cancer patients and their families. The Canadian Cancer Society is also a voice of change ensuring that governments at the local, provincial and national remain responsive to the evolving needs of cancer patients. For example, in 2011 the CCS convinced the Manitoba government to cover the cost of all cancer treatment and support drugs. Since then, this initiative has helped more than 12,000 families in Manitoba save an estimated $54 million in drug expenses. Thanks to the commitment of time and energy of our volunteers, we are able to keep our administrative costs below 7%.

 

What are you waiting for... why not join in? You'll be glad you did!
