A great coach had a vision that the next generation of dragon boaters will exemplify the sport. These youths will not only gain confidence, become stronger, and learn the true meaning of teamwork, they will use what's learned on the boat to better their lives and those in the community around them. They will have a chance to learn the qualities necessary to become good leaders, get exposed to various scholarship and internship programs, and are mentored by some of the best young professionals in the Boston area!
In 2017, ONE Racing instituted the ONE LEAP (Leadership, Education, Athleticism, and Professionalism) Scholarship Program. This program is open to all Next ONE members who have been on the team for at least 2 seasons. The ONE LEAP Scholarship is designed to promote youth development in leadership. In addition it's meant to support youth education, health and professionalism
Youth membership is free and includes practice time, coaching, and free entry into the annual Boston Dragon Boat Festival. Contact us today!
Thanks to the support from our long term sponsor Atlantic Wharf and a generous anonymous donor, we instituted a ONE LEAP scholarship program in 2017! We are constantly looking for more partnership opportunities to develop and grow our youth programs. Please contact us today to find out how you can contribute!
