On its 3rd year, one the team’s agenda in 2011 is to reach out to more disadvantaged Filipinos back in the Philippines through tie ups with different charities in Singapore and in their homeland.
The first crew members comprise of Filipinos new in the sport and also, veterans from different teams in Singapore and the Philippines. A growing number of Filipinos who are enthusiastic about the sport along with their competitive spirit and national pride motivated the paddlers to establish the team.
The objective of the team is to represent the Philippines in the sport of traditional dragonboat, develop interpersonal skills, and promote camaraderie among members. Although this team represents the Philippines, locals and other nationalities have joined and trained with the team. To date, there are over 180 active members.
