About Liceo Dragonoids
The Dragonoids, the official dragon boat team of Liceo de Cagayan University, was established on September 7, 2014 and is the first team to be created in Cagayan de Oro City and Misamis Oriental. The team is also the second university team in the entire island of Mindanao after Father Saturnino Urios University of Butuan City.
Aside from promoting the sport in the region, the Dragonoids are also bent on helping the environmental efforts of Safer River Life Saver Foundation, Inc. specially in campaigning for the sustainability and preservation of the Cagayan de Oro River. They aim to help in bringing back the attention of the people to the river and how we all have a role in saving this majestic natural resource.
The team is currently coached by one of the key personalities in the Philippine Dragon Boat scene, Ms. Priscilla Pinky Castillo, an International Dragon Boat Federation Certified Coach (level 2). Owen Jaen, program coordinator of Liceo de Cagayan University, is the team's manager.
The Dragonoids can be regularly seen training twice a day in the river on Wednesdays and Saturdays on board their Kendle Dragon Boat.
