The Club The Seattle Flying Dragon Boat Club is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that is run entirely by volunteers. We've been paddling on South Lake Union for more than a decade. Originally a branch of the Tacoma Dragon Boat Association, in 2008 we had grown enough to form our own club. Since then we've expanded to the City of Kenmore. We're part of the larger dragon boat community in the Puget Sound region and members of the Pacific Dragon Boat Association (PDBA).
The purpose of this corporation is to foster local, regional, national and international amateur dragon boating competition as a charitable and educational organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code or its successor. In furthering the purpose set forth above, this corporation shall have these primary objectives:
To support the development of amateur athletes for local, regional, national and international amateur dragon boat competition.
To conduct, or to aid in conducting, local, regional, national and international amateur competitions in dragon boating.
To provide a safe environment and safety training for dragon boating.
To further awareness and participation in the sport of dragon boating in the community.
To provide an environment and programs that promote and encourage lifetime participation in dragon boat paddling.
