This year many of Team members don’t have boat race experience, lack of training or experience.

AALEA will come back next year with more efforts to make the team stronger and proud in this race.

Next year Team AALEA will be trained by the Greater Chicago Dragon Boat Club before the race. 
For anyone who is interested to join our dragon boat team next year, must be an active (who has actively participated and supported AALEA) AALEA member plus must attend all six practice sessions by the Greater Chicago Dragon Boat Club 6 weeks before the race to be placed on the roster.
