NTeam Full Crew Training for Asian Games 2022
Asian Games 2022, Hangzhou, China, 21st to 23rd September
In our bid to qualify for the Hanzhou Asian Games 2022 in China, November 2022, the Singapore National Dragon Boat Team (Nteam) has been given the go ahead by the relevant authorities to embark with Full Crew Training.
This is to prepare the team in achieving qualification targets for the Games. The Asian Games is the highest major international sport event that dragon boat features in (the other being the Southeast Asian Games). With dragon boat not being in the Olympics (yet!), this is the biggest honour and accolade for Singapore dragon boat.
Full Crew Training will allow the team to train as per pre-COVID conditions of having multiple members in groups (i.e. full crew of 12 athletes in the DB 12 Dragon Boat). The conditions will extend to group land training as well.
NTeam shall be subjected to very stringent SMM both in and out of training as set out by MOH, SportSG and SDBA. One of the many conditions that NTeam crew members are required to partake is the Regular Routine Tests (RRT), conducted on a weekly basis. On the water, the team can be identified by the “NTeam” label on the sides of their boats.
We humbly seek the DB community’s understanding and support to qualify for the Asian Games. With your thoughts and prayers, we are hopeful to bring glory and honour to Singapore as well as to our DB community.
