The Blades are pleased to announce the re-appointment of Head Coach Richard Marshall and Assistant Coach Laura Hughes for the 2021-22 dragon boat season.
Richard joined the club in 2016, having not even heard of the sport until his wife, Maggie, tried it out. He quickly became an excellent paddler and with his enthusiasm for fitness evident, was soon selected for the State and National (Auroras) teams, returning from the World Championships in Thailand in 2019 with a swag of medals.
Laura has an extensive history of paddling and coaching interstate and in WA, taking teams to gold medal wins. She is also an Aurora paddler and coach, and is on the boards of both the State and national bodies which manage dragon boating.
The Blades are looking forward to a rewarding season, as we work with our experienced, dedicated coaches.
Anyone is welcome to “Come and Try” on Sundays 8am, Tuesdays and Thursdays 6pm. For more information please go to www.cockburndragonboatclub.org.au
