Dragon Boat ACT

Overview

Dragon Boat ACT (DBACT) is the peak organisation in traditional Chinese Dragon Boat racing for the ACT. DBACT encourages and supports schools and juniors aged between 12 – 23 years who wish to participate in Dragon Boat racing and enjoy having fun with their friends and team members. As paddlers you will have opportunities to develop strong leadership skills, key motor skills, communication skills, lasting friendships, while having access to qualified coaches (Australian standard), all training equipment and participating in regatta days. Through our affiliation with our governing body Australian Dragon Boat Federation (AusDBF) you will have access to numerous dragon boat related courses (coaching, officials) and further opportunities for leadership development. Dragon Boating is an ideal sport for those students who are looking for an environment where you do not have to be an elite athlete, you can be with your friends and be part of a team that works together to achieve a common goal of having fun.
