THE WOODLANDS, TX - The community is invited out to cheer on their favorite teams as the South Montgomery County YMCA, Aon HEWITT and The Woodlands Township host the 15th Annual YMCA Dragon Boat Team Challenge in The Woodlands. The charity event is scheduled for September 26 – 30, Northshore Park and Lake Woodlands. Admission is free for spectators.

This unique team building event is designed to build community spirit among corporations, civic groups and community organizations. The activities are designed to bring individuals together to achieve a single goal – To Have FUN! They achieve this by becoming a team and working together as a synchronized unit. It's much more than "beating the other team."" It is the camaraderie, visiting and playing with old friends, meeting new friends, hard work and feeling good about it. At the YMCA, Everybody Plays and Everybody Wins.

At press time, the event had a few openings for high school teams in the Sunday morning bracket, Sept. 29, 8am – Noon. All other brackets are sold out.

The Dragon Boat Races are the main event. Dragon boats are forty foot long, extremely colorful dragon headed canoes and weigh over 1800 pounds. In addition to the dragon boat races, each team will have the opportunity to participate in five other fun team-building activities. These activities will vary and will include problem-solving, non-athletic as well as physically challenging. There will be Something for Everyone regardless of their fitness level or athletic abilities!

The 15th Annual YMCA Dragon Boat Team Challenge in The Woodlands is a charity event benefitting YMCA Partners Program. Thanks to our generous sponsors, hundreds and hundreds of at risk youth can participate in YMCA Youth Development and Leadership Programs at no charge. The Y is committed to being available to all regardless of families' financial resources.

More than 100 teams will be participating over the 4 day weekend. Teams will be competing 2:00 – 6:00pm Thursday and 8am – Noon and 2:00 – 6:00pm, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
