About XtremeNY

"Who are we?!!"


To hear our battlecry is to know who we are. We are Xtreme NY / Xtreme USA, Inc., a veteran team in Dragon Boat Racing. We are a 501 (c)(3) IRS tax exempt non-profit organization. Our dragon boat crew came together in 1996, formed by a group of friends in New York City. Searching for an outlet for our irrepressible competitive spirit, we came together to test ourselves against the best in the competitions. Early every spring through fall, we can be found spending our weekend mornings practicing in a never ending struggle to improve.

But that doesn't mean we don't have fun! To be Xtreme means not only to work hard, but to play hard. Besides the weekly practices, there are also team events. There are meetings, dinners, outings and our annual team barbecue.

It's because we combine the best of teamwork, competitiveness and fun that Xtreme NY has grown every year. Since 1996, we have grown from a handful of people to over 60 members. We are always happy to open our arms to anyone willing to make the commitment to our organization. And in return, that person doesn't just become a member of a team, that person becomes a part of the Xtreme NY family.

Xtreme Mission Statement:

Through dragonboat, we grow a community of individuals into a family bonded by fellowship, perseverance, affirmation, and fun.

Our Tenets:
We will respect and support each other through our common endeavors.
We will train hard and persevere through our mental, physical and emotional challenges to become the best versions of ourselves.
We will strive to create a team environment that is positive, collaborative, and fun.
We love the diversity of NYC and warmly encourage all to come join us for fun in the sun.

Even if 'Athlete' is not a term you use to describe yourself, join us and learn to use the muscle that pivots you in all that you do: Heart. We, at XtremeNY put our hearts into our friendships, our practice drills, our races, and above all, in ourselves - so that we can bring the best of us into every aspect of our lives. Join us and learn how you can become more of yourself.
