The 2017 USDBF Club Crew National Dragon Boat Championships are coming up quick! We have been busy preparing for the National Club Crew Event. Club Crews from across the US will come to Nationals at Mercer Country Park in West Windsor, NJ on September 16th and 17th to battle for the title of National Champion in their respective division. The winning crew for each division will win a berth for the 2018 IDBF Club Crew World Championships (CCWCs) held in Szeged, Hungary. Paddlers from under 18 to over 60 years old will be competing. The event is open to all club teams to compete in a National Championship. We will be hosting all divisions and urge all teams to participate. The Championships will be conducted in conjunction with the Walgreens Mercer County Dragon Boat Festival.

We are so excited to be working with GWN to bring you an amazing dragon boat racing experience. It has been a pleasure to grow this event, collaborating together with the folks at GWN in the true spirit of dragon boat teamwork. The USDBF and GWN are working hard put together an event that showcases the amazing paddling skills of club crews across the USA on an outstanding race course.
