LARD in action

The Los Angeles Racing Dragons is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to the sport of dragon boat racing and fulfills our mission through public education, and the active support and development of new teams. Founded in 1998, our membership has grown from a small family of paddlers to over 100 paddlers of various ethnicities. We are a diverse team, with paddlers ranging from recreational to competitive, adolescences to seniors, and even a full crew of breast cancer survivors. Dragon boat racing is a very involved sport, emphasizing teamwork, good sportsmanship, and camaraderie.

In addition to racing, we support the community by:

  • Participating in local beach clean-ups
  • Conducting paddling and steering clinics to other dragon boat teams
  • Providing custom paddling clinics to Upward Bound and the Cub Scouts
  • Organizing and coaching the first breast cancer survivor team in California, the Los Angles Pink Dragons.

Our organization operates on a volunteer basis, ensuring that 100% of your contribution goes directly to the team operations.
