What is dragon boating?

Dragon boating is a team of 12 to 22 people in a canoe-type boat, paddling in time towards the finish line. In the boat are the paddlers, the sweep (standing at the back and steering the boat), and the drummer (sitting at the front and beating the drum). 

 

Am I fit enough?

All members follow a training programme which aims at gradually building up strength, flexibility and aerobic fitness.


Do I need to be able to swim?

If unable to swim 50 metres, you will be required to wear a life jacket. We have PFDs available.


What do I wear?

Hat (if sunny), shorts or ¾ pants, t-shirt, aqua shoes/crocs, water bottle, sunscreen, spray jacket (optional)


Do I have to come 4 times in a row?

You can use your 4 free sessions any time you like, and they do not have to be 4 times in a row.


What will it cost if I decide to join?

There are 2 registrations that require payment. All dragon boat clubs are members of Dragon Boat SA (DBSA) which attracts an annual fee. ASA also has an annual fee, but there are options regarding payment as these depend upon your level of involvement.


Some people like to come out and just train and not be part of regattas, whereas the majority of members like to train AND be involved in regattas. Costs will be advised when a decision is made to join our club.
