FCRCC Dragon Boat Teams 2015 season

It’s that time of year once again!!  The FCRCC Dragon Boat Season runs from January 2015 through to December 2015.  Teams may choose to practice for a full year time slot or a partial year from January to June OR July to December.

Team Registration:

The Dragon Boat Team Registration Form is once again available online.  Please register your dragon boat team by following this link.

If this is the first time you have used the Registration system, be sure to select the NEW USER button.  If you have previously used this system with the same email address you will be a RETURN USER.  The ONLINE ACCOUNT button is used when you want to go back into the system and review previous activity, edit previous information or make a payment.

At this point in time, we are not offering an online credit card payment option.  Please come to the FCRCC office and make your payment by cheque or cash.  (If the office is not open, you may leave an envelope at the False Creek Community Centre main desk where the FCRCC has a mailbox.)  The Dragon boat team will receive up to 3 keys for the FCRCC equipment sheds.

The full Dragon Boat Agreement will be signed during the on line registration process.  The on-line agreement has one important update that is not yet posted on our website.  (the web site form will be updated soon) This is:

1.6 “Every team will be responsible for tidying the kayak/DB shed once during the year. This is a quick task involving such tasks as sweeping out leaves, picking up garbage and hanging life-jackets and paddles that have been left around. The Dragon Boat Rep will contact each team’s representative to schedule their team’s turn.”

It is important to be familiar with all aspects of this agreement.

You must submit your paper version of the Team Roster (included on the Dragon Boat Agreement). Paddlers who are not Individual members of FCRCC will need to complete a paper waiver which must be submitted to the FCRCC office.  No teams may practice without completing the Registration process, submitting their Team Roster and completing waivers for each paddler.  A deposit of at least 50% of applicable team fees must be paid prior to your first on water practice.

Team Practice Schedules

You may reserve your practice slot now.  A team that has a 2014 practice slot has priority on their current slot(s) until December 1, 2014.  After that date, all slots are considered open and will be allotted to whoever registers for them first.  Slot reservations may be made commencing November 1st by completing the on line registration and making a deposit of at least $100.00.  This fee is non-refundable but will be applied towards the team fees.

It is important to specify the number of dragon boats you will be booking at each time slot. The assumption is that only one boat will be needed per Registration.    If you require more than one Dragon boat per practice be sure to register the second boat as well.
