The Drummer is the heartbeat of the dragon/team! He/she sits high in the bow of the boat, facing the team. From this perch, the drummer oversees each paddler and the race course. During practices, the drummer coaches the team using drills which will increase the team's strength and stroke unity. During races, the drummer sets the pace and encourages the team to do its best synchronized efforts.
ALL drummers are encouraged to attend the Training Clinics. For more information, go to Training Clinics for drummers.
