Get to know the team history, coaches, and staff

The San Francisco Dragon Healers was founded in 2005. The team is comprised of employees of Kaiser Permanente from the San Francisco, Redwood City, San Rafael and South SF facilities, their families and friends. We are proud of the diversity of the team members and their ability to come together for the common goal of crossing the finish line! We love the rush of Lake Merced, the fog, fine food, and of course good competition! Our paddlers proudly give back to the Dragon Boat community by coaching a youth team and being involved with the California Dragon Boat Association. READ MORE
