Sue Holloway Cup

You train on the water, off the water, in the heat, in the cold (and far too often in the rain), you know what it takes to be a top athlete. As members of DBC your team is committed to pushing each other to cross that finish line first.   

The inaugural year for the Sue Holloway Challenge Cup allows sport teams a chance to earn DBC qualifying points while striving for greatness in their sport, just as four-time Olympian, two time Olympic medalist and Canada Sports Hall of Famer, Sue Holloway achieved. Show everyone what hard work and dedication really looks like.

Challenge Cup teams must have a minimum of 9 people racing from the designated cup category. For example, if you are entering the High Tech Challenge your team must have a minimum of 9 paddlers who are employed with the High Tech organization the team represents. Challenge Cups require a minimum of 3 teams so issue a challenge to your competition and get ready to beat them on the water!
Some great reasons to enter a team:

     · Be a part of North America's largest dragon boat festival

     · We provide everything you need (paddles and PFDs), oh and the boat too

     · We'll show you how - two free practices with fun and knowledgeable coaches

     · Decorate your 10x20' team site to compete for the best team site award or promote who you are what you do

- All equipment (boats, paddles, PFDs) for all 22 team members
