The Benefits of Dragon Boating
People of all fitness levels can participate and the longer you do it, the fitter you’ll become
It’s a whole body workout. You drive with your legs while the muscles in your core, shoulders, arms and back are engaged during the paddle’s stroke.
Great for strengthening your abs and core.
Cardiovascular fitness: your endurance and stamina will quickly build from training multiple times a week.
With a crew of 22, it’s a great way to get to know your neighbors and make new friends.
What equipment is required?
Bring your own water bottle and dress to get splashed; after all it is a water-sport.
Paddlers can bring their own USCG approved life jackets and may eventually want to invest in their own paddle. The club has life jackets and paddles for anyone who does not have, or prefers not to use, their own.
Do I need to know how to paddle?
MiraBay Dragon Boat Club always welcomes new paddlers. No experience is necessary.
Although paddling is a physically active sport, participation in Dragon Boating is not limited by age or skill level. The club currently consists of paddlers with ages spanning six decades.
How often are practices?
Practices last one hour and are currently offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 pm and Saturdays at 8:30 am. Individual team members typically participate in 1-3 practices per week.Practice Location:
Feedback from our previous clients
Where can we start We have so many amazing things to say about Jennifer and Anthony. Since that first phone call, Jennifer and Anthony made us feel at home and welcome, I remember the first time my wife spoke to Jennifer we both had thought it was going to be hard to get preapproved. Jennifer mentioned two different mortgage brokers, and eventually, with Jennifer's guidance, we decided to contact Kristine Bredeau, from SWBC Mortgage Corporation. After we had gotten preapproved. Jennifer became part of our family, constantly on the phone setting appointment, Jennifer and Anthony really care about their clients and are dedicated and passionate about finding their clients their dream, home. They are so knowledgeable and we learn so much about what to look for when buying a home. She took her time to explain every detail and aspect of what was not right or good in a home as well as what were the potentials. I have so many amazing things to say I can write a book. Jennifer and Anthony were always available to answer our questions, even when she had a personal appointment she will communicate that with us, and let us know she was going to be unavailable but we could text and she will reply as soon as she was done. Even with other clients on her schedule, she made us feel number one always. Every step of the way as a first-time homebuyer I can say it is possible thanks to the Lord most a formal but definitely do to Jennifer's expertise her advice on every step from making sure the offer made sense. We totally trusted her opinion she show us she really care. We will recommend Jennifer and Anthony to everyone we know as from now on they are part of our family.

Anthony and Jennifer are without a doubt the best real estate couple I know. They sold my waterfront property when others couldn't and didn't. My property was unsuccessfully listed with others for many years, and Anthony and Jennifer sold it for less than a year! They took charge immediately and were front and center from the beginning! Their knowledge and experience are extraordinary! This couple is amazing! My ONLY regret is NOT knowing them sooner. I'm very happy with their expertise! Superb, excellent job!
We have used Team Sparacino three times now. One for a sell, the second for a purchase, and the third for advice to rent out our home. I guarantee we will use them for a fourth time in the foreseeable future. Their honesty, relentless dedication, and “no-fail mission” approach to selling/purchasing a home is hands down the best within the Tampa and greater Tampa area. As as client, I called Team Sparacino at the beginning of the Covid crisis in 2021 after I was informed my military job would be moving me out of Tampa within 50 days. I asked for an honest opinion if I should sell or rent given our home had increased in value by $20K. Rather than jumping on an opportunity to make a buck, Anthony convinced me to rent it out in the uncertain, Covid market. Now, here we are a year later as successful landlord and our home value has increased to over $30K than original purchase price. Team Sparacino will treat you like family. Do not pass up on building a lifetime relationship with this couple. We have worked with them since 2011.
