Passing of the Torch

As we open the 2009 Dragon Boat season, there have been changes at Team Xtreme.

As a result of a recent injury and limited availability due to a heavy work schedule, Jeffrey Lee has decided to step down as President of XtremeNY. It was not an easy decision and one that he had been debating for some time. Having held this position for over 5 years, Jeff felt it was the right time for Team Xtreme to benefit from some new ideas and a renewed passion for the sport and the organization.

With Jeff's departure, we also welcome in the new Team Xtreme President, Otto Chan. Otto has been an Assistant Coach for several seasons and has been a dedicated team member. Otto is one of the "veterans" on the Team and brings with him several years of experience and a passion for the sport which makes him a terrific person to lead Team Xtreme into the this season and beyond.

Also joining the coaching staff this season, we welcome new assistant coaches Gary Ling and Bud Pusposuharto.

Let's work hard and have a great 2009 Season.

Go Team Xtreme!!
