Honour. Focus. Engage.

New Dragons is a competitive dragon boat team affiliated with the University of Toronto. As of the 2023 Canadian Nationals, we stand together as one of the top teams in both the University and U24 divisions. We are also the oldest dragon boat team at the University of Toronto, and have an incredible history and legacy to show.

As a team, we are comprised of students from various universities pursuing education at the undergraduate and graduate level.  As a family, we help push each other through the struggles of training, school, work, and everything else life throws at us.  Our passion keeps us strong and our bond keeps us together.

We're Recruiting.

New Dragons is looking for committed individuals to join us for the 2023-2024 season to compete in the Canadian Dragon Boat Championships, and lead us to perform in the 2024 Club Crew World Championships in Ravenna, Italy.  We look for candidates from both inside and outside of the University of Toronto, and we welcome both experienced and beginner paddlers to try out. With us, you can train with a diverse team of athletes throughout the season and you can always find a place in our family.
