Membership Levels - Two Options to Accommodate Your Level of Interest and Commitment

Membership is open to all paddlers. Prospective members can practice twice without any obligation to the club. 

Associate Membership

This membership is for those who are undecided about joining CHP, or only want to practice with our group and NOT participate in races. Associate Members have two options for dues: pay $5.00 for each practice attended (not to exceed $100.00 per year), or pay $100.00 per year for unlimited practice time. However, if the boat is full, preference will be given to Full Members. At the discretion of the coach, Associate Members may be able to race with the team.

Full Membership

2019 Club Dues are $150 per year with an initiation fee of $150, to be paid by the second year. Race fees are approximately $40 per race for those selected to be on the race roster. The club furnishes paddles and vests for use the first year. Discounts on equipment are available through the Southeast Regional Dragon Boat Association (SRDBA), with orders placed through the club several times a year. The annual SRDBA membership fee is $15, payable by each club member.  Club shirts and hats are purchased by the paddler.
