Captain’s Guide

  • Congratulations! You registered a team in the Dragon Boat race. Now, how do you recruit and keep the team assembled until race day? Try following a few simple suggestions.

    Ways to Recruit & Keep a Team

     

    • Team members can include co-workers, colleagues, friends, spouses, neighbors, clients, church members.
    • Initially recruit at least 25 for your team.
    • Keep a waiting list for last minute substitutions.
    • Expect turnover. Consider rules for team members – e.g., if one member drops,
      make them responsible for getting a replacement.
    • Try an online team management system. One of the best dragon boat teams in the country
      uses teamsnap.com, which is free!
    • Keep them involved. Share Team Captain Updates and/or event info with team members.
    • Create a team page at FirstGiving to promote the race and your fundraising efforts.
