The Cleveland Dragon Boat Association (CDBA) owns and operates three dragon boats on the Cuyahoga River. We are located at Rivergate Park, 1785 Merwin Ave, Cleveland, OH 44113. Rivergate Park is another gem in the Cleveland Metroparks Emerald Necklace that provides the only public access to the river's federal commercial navigation channel.
Active members of CDBA volunteer their efforts to benefit families and individuals of all ages, as well as the business, civic and not-for-profit organizations in Northeast Ohio. Throughout the paddling season, CDBA and Cleveland Metroparks provide a variety of teambuilding and recreational program activities to the Greater Cleveland community. To inquire about starting a team or to schedule an outing for your business or organization, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call us at 440-399-7373. Use the Team Contacts below for joining an existing team.
Everyone, new and Returning Paddlers: we need you to sign a Waiver (PDF) for this year. Bring it to your first practice OR sign and email it to Rad Schneider, Board President, OR just fill it out here:
New paddlers are invited to Merwins Wharf for an introduction to Dragon Boating. Contact any team captain - ahead of time via email or in person at the dock! You will need to sign a Waiver (see above). The first time is free, and only $5 per session after.
Checkout the Teams and practice times below to use your season pass for invigorating workouts with any team. (Think of how swoll you could get!) To be sure of a seat with your team or on another team's boat, be sure to email the team contact for seat availability. Sync your Google Calendar with CBDA's to keep up with schedule changes as they are reported. Either a season pass ($75) or per session fee ($5) can be used for team workouts.
