Project Description


The 1925 Paddlers Club Philippines is a PCKF team formed in 1998 by a group of dragon boat enthusiasts from the Alpha Phi Omega (APO) fraternity. Its original name was APO Dragon Boat Rowing Team.

After a couple of years of inactivity, team founder Herson Caneba and Dennis Altea of the Epsilon Nu chapter of APO reorganized the team, opening it to non-fraternity members in alignment with their core values of “leadership, friendship and service” through dragon boat. One of the most commendable tenets of their mission statement aims “to promote healthy lifestyles by discouraging negative vices among the youth, and to render services that will contribute to uplifting sports” in the Philippines.
