Free Agent Paddling

Always wanted to try paddling but don’t belong to a team? We consider you a Free Agent, no experience necessary! Register as a Free Agent and we will help you join a registered team that is short of the required team size of 17.

Information for Free agent paddlers

Entry Fee is $50, fundraising commitment is $75.

Included in your registration fee: a 75-minute practice session on Practice Weekend (July 15-16), at least two races on Festival Day, and souvenir Festival swag for each paddler/drummer.

If we cannot place you with a team by July 12, we will refund your entry fee and cancel the balance of your fundraising commitment.

You will sign up under the “Free Agent” Team and wait for a team assignment. We will transfer your registration and fundraising to that team and provide your contact information to the new captain.

Your captain will contact you to welcome you to the team. You will practice with the team and hang out with them on race day. They will also share with you any plans for fundraising and competitive strategies!

Information for Team Captains needing additional paddlers

We’ve got your back! We know it’s tough to get a hard commitment from 16 other co-workers, friends and family members. Every year we are approached by enthusiastic community members, wanting to paddle but don’t have a team.

These Free Agents can join your team, attend practice weekend with you and race with you across the finish line! Use the button below to let us know how many Free Agents you need. We will provide Free Agent contact information so that you can contact him / her / them directly to inform them of your practice time, team name and competitive strategies! We’ll update your team roster so your Free Agent’s fundraising efforts count towards your team’s progress. Questions? Ask them using the “captains” button below.
