MANITOBA ICE DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL
Dates coming soon for 2023!
Dragon Boats racing on ice! Yes, you read that right!
Teams of 11 (10 paddlers, 1 drummer) use special ice paddles to skate their dragon boats across the finish line. With the expansion of the Red River Mutual Trail, we hope to give Winnipeggers another reason to get out and experience what our great city has to offer in the winter.
INDOOR DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL
Dates coming soon for 2023!
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.
MPA makes safety our number one priority. We have an excellent reputation and superior safety record. We 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, experience, and dedication of our staff and volunteers!
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.
Currently, we're looking for a new charity to support through our outstanding events! Don't hesitate to reach out if you think we'd be the right fit!
