July 30, 2008 National Capitol Area Youth Program Announced

The National Capital Area Women's Paddling Association (NCAWPA), the organization that has in the past trained festival teams for the annual Washington, DC Dragon Boat Festival sent Dragon Boat News an announcement of the creation of a Youth Dragon Boat Program.

NCAWPA is looking for youths, ages 13-17, interested in paddling. No experience is required. They are also looking for parent volunteers to help make this community program a success.

The first session is scheduled for Sunday, August 3rd and practices will run until the end of October. Paddlers (youth and parents) can come down during a scheduled practice to give dragon boating a try. Iinterested paddlers should make sure to contacte with the Youth Program Coordinator (since consent forms need to be completed beforehand for youth). More information is available at: http://ncawpa.org/youth/.

For more information, please visit: www.ncawpa.org or contact Sharon Hong, NCAWPA Youth Program Coordinator at ncawpa.youth@gmail.com.
