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).

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.
