Team Missabittatitti sets the standard on and off the water for encouraging women and men to lead an active and full life after a breast cancer diagnosis. We are a unique paddling group. Our club’s members range in age from their early 40s to mid 80s, and we offer social paddling and also coaching for those who want to improve as sports paddlers. Because of our diversity, extra care must be taken to ensure all members have a safe and enjoyable experience on and off the water. It is every paddler’s responsibility to be aware of, and comply with at all times with, our Code of Conduct.  MBT Code of Conduct

Safety On The Water

Team Missabittatitti is a unique dragon boat club of breast cancer survivors. As well as social paddling our coaches provide instruction for those who want to improve as sports paddlers. Because of our diversity, extra care must be taken to ensure all MBT members have a safe and enjoyable experience on and off the water. The safety and welfare of all MBT members will always be our Coaches and Sweeps first priority. Our Coaches and Sweeps must ensure our members are safe and fit to enjoy their time on the water. However, every single DAB member is responsible for their own personal health and safety.
