Sport Info

What you need to know about our 'Get On The Water - 8-week Paddling Course'


The Quinte Paddling Club

Quinte Rouge Paddling Club is a non-profit dragon boat club with training sites at the Rowing Club in Belleville  and The Rouge Canoe Club in Pickering. We offer competitive and recreational programs under Head Coach Konrad Doerrbecker, Coach Terry Boyd (Recreational) and Coach Stan Burrows (Rouge).

Our world class dragon boat competitive program has become one of Canada's best over the past few years, with a fist full of World and Canadian Championships and medals to prove it.
While members may range in experience, age, ability, and location, we all love being on water and working together as a team to make our boats go faster.

Required Equipment

QRPC will provide all necessary paddling equipment and PFDs (life jackets).  You bring the enthusiasm!  Paddlers should wear athletic gear that can get wet and bring a water bottle.




Paddlers are required to wear a PFD.


Get on the Water - Intro to Paddling takes place with the Quinte Rowing Club (35 Keegan Pkwy, Belleville, ON K8N 5R1).
