The Dueling Dragons of Orlando
The Dueling Dragons of Orlando Dragon Boat Team (a.k.a., “Cops and Kids”) is an unlikely partnership between at-risk teens and officers from the
Orlando Police Department
who have joined together to become a one-of-a-kind, competitive racing team. The Kids come from the City’s
Operation Positive Direction
Parramore Kidz Zone
, and the City's
Families, Parks and Recreation Department
. The Cops and Kids both participate as volunteers. This is the Dueling Dragon’s third year competing, primarily in the
Walgreens International Dragon Boat Festival
held at Downtown Disney each fall.
The Dueling Dragons head to Toronto via Air Canada on September 6th for the GWN Dragon Boat Challenge.
