Practice Fees

The following is a list of fees for the 2017 season. In calculating your fees please note that there is a boat charge as well as a coach charge. Coaches have been assigned a coaching level based on experience in our dragon boat program. When booking practices you will be asked to select a coaching level and you may request a specific coach. If the requested coach is not at the level selected it will depend on that coaches' availability. Priority for coaches will always be given to teams which have selected the coaching level of the requested coach. Please email dragon@rideaucanoeclub.ca if you would like to know the level of a coach. Below are some brief descriptions. Please note that teams may also hire steerspeople for their practices. The cost for a steersperson for practices is $26 + HST. If a team would like to rent a motor boat for training the cost is $35/hour with a minimum charge of $35+HST (ie. if a team only uses it for 30 minutes the charge is still $35+HST). The boat must be driven by a licensed driver.

Coaching Levels:
The following descriptions provide general guidelines that may help you in selecting a coach for your dragon boat season. Please note that if you request a specific coach you will need to pay the rate of that coach.
 
Development (Dev) - Coach is new to our program
Intermediate (Int) - Coach with 1-3 years of experience with our program
Senior (Sen) - Coach with 3-5 years of experience
Veteran (Vet) - Coach has 5+ years experience

The charge for the boat works on a sliding scale price model which adjusts your team's boat charge based on the number of PAID practices booked. Please note that complimentary practices for the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival and the RCC Festival do NOT contribute to the total number of practices when calculating the discount. As more practices are booked, your boat rate per practice will decrease. Example: If you book 12 PAID practices, your boat rate will be $95 + HST for each of the 12 practices (coach fees are additional) - Please note that coaching fees do not change with the number of practices.
