Our volunteers are the heart of DBC. Without them, we could not accomplish all that we do. DBC’s standing member committees include Water (coaches, safety, steering), Wellness, Outreach, and Needs.
The Water Committee ensures practices are held regularly and safely.
- Safety boat drivers are need several times each week. If you are an experienced boater and knowledgeable of boat regulations, please join us!
- Coaches plan and execute practices for all levels of paddling. Coaching clinics are held annually.
- Steerspersons are responsible for the safety of the crew while on the water and have highest level of command of the boat. Introductory trainings are held yearly and steer in training opportunities are help year-round.
The Needs Committee provides care and comfort to any of our members in need. It may be a meal, a ride, or just to lend an ear. We understand that everyone has different needs and we respect the privacy of all.
The Outreach Committee is the welcoming force for our newest members. They recruit and welcome new paddlers to DBC year-round.
The Wellness Committee engages our members year round in off-water activities that promote physical and mental wellness, including our annual Winter Wellness program.
DBC is proud to offer internships to area students in high school or college. For more information, contact Lucy@dragonboatcharleston.org.
