MEET THE TEAM
The Water Vipers aims to be the highest performing ‘twice-per-week’ dragon boat team in Toronto. We aspire to be the best dragon boat crew without having to sacrifice other commitments in life.
We are committed at doing more with less, by striving for efficient training with effective methods, to deliver consistently high performing results. We train with a mindset guided by focused training that screams quality over quantity.
With the Water Vipers, everything we do is inspired by our core values. Fitness. Inclusiveness. Growth. Development. And Passion. Like a compass, these values guide us and help determine what we do and who we are.
