What sets Amateur Paddlers Philippines (AmPPhi) apart from other dragon boat teams is its welcoming, non-intimidating attitude toward first time trainees who wish to try dragonboating.
The team aims to spread the fun, excitement and healthy experience that dragon boat paddling offers to sports enthusiasts or even just for curious hobbyists while also providing a serious and rigorous training platform for more competitive athletes by providing opportunities to train for and race in local and international dragon boat racing events.
Members of the team are highly diversified. Most of them are professionals from different fields with varying interests, while some are homemakers, students and thriving microentrepreneurs. AmPPhi perfectly embodies a perfect work-social life balance, providing a wholesome diversion from stress while making friends with fascinating people. Members motivate, support and care for each other, pretty much how a well-knit family does for its members.
Anyone may join our team by attending any of our training schedules: Wednesdays & Fridays, 4:30am and Saturdays & Sundays, 6:00am. We encourage that they contact any of our team officers (contact persons), to assist them with any concerns.
