High Performance Dragon Boat

Our goal is to develop within the membership, a desire to achieve excellence in performance, a dedication to a healthy lifestyle, and hard work. We strive to create an atmosphere where our members feel valued, respected and have the opportunity to develop their potential within a team setting.  The Warlocks have developed into a cohesive, group of athletes; constantly pushing and encouraging each other to reach new heights, and pulling together to accomplish team goals. Our aim is to promote the sport of Dragon boating in the Niagara Region to all age groups and to showcase Welland as a world class training facility.
