Toronto's Premier Paddling Club

Unique × Flexible × AFFORDABLE



Our mission is to be the best home to great community dragon boat athletes and teams, helping them grow by offering more for less.

Iron River Racing is a non-profit dragon boat venue providing the best service to teams and the best programs to individuals. We aim to deliver what teams and athletes really want, like an extra-long paddling season, quality equipment, effective programming, broad development opportunities, and responsive service to meet last-minute needs, all at a stable and reasonable cost.

We know first-hand the stresses of being an athlete or running a dragon boat team financed by the athletes, and we are the solution.

Team Services


Dragon Boat Rental

We offer affordable and dependable dragon boat rental in Toronto. Our grassroots organization is run by community leaders just like you, so we work hard to use all our resources to maximum efficiency.

We have the experience to meet the needs of both recreational and high-performance teams. Our fleet of 'Champion' brand boats (same as used in international competition) are well maintained, and high-quality paddling equipment is included with each rental.

Standard boats can seat up to 20 paddlers, 1 drummer, and 1 steersperson.


COACHING & Steering

We can provide high-quality coaching adapted to any group, from first-timers to A-final crews. All our coaches are young, energetic, and experienced instructors who continue to compete at the highest level of the sport as athletes themselves. They will inspire your team and bring them to the next level!

Have a coach, and just need an experienced steersperson? We can provide that too.
