The "Off Balance Dragons" are not only the first MS dragon boating team in Canada, but also in the world! Off Balance Dragons was founded in October 2005 and are composed of people who live with MS along with their caregivers and friends. The team’s emphasis is on recreation and having fun, though in previous years the team has competed in the Alcan Dragon Boat Festival and other international sporting events.

With the encouragement and support of wonderful coaches and friends, the Off Balance paddlers have had the exhilaration of being on the water and working as a team. The physical exercise and camaraderie provide an exhilarating experience for all!

Please note that all participants would need to sign a waiver prior to participating in the dragon boat team. 

  • When: Practices are every Sunday from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. during the Spring and Summer months.
  • Where: False Creek Community Centre - 1318 Cartwright St, Vancouver, BC V6H 3R8
  • Cost: There will be a small fee of $50 for the entire season to cover team costs.
  • Additional details: Paddles and life vests are provided. The team has three adapted seats only, so paddlers needing adaptive seats will need to inform the Off Balance Team.
