The Canberra Griffins Dragon Boat Club is a family-friendly club and one of the longest established dragon boat clubs in the ACT. With several parent-child combinations in the team, the club prides itself on encouraging all age groups, from 13 years to 70+, to get involved and paddle! We work to develop world-class paddlers without losing sight of the fact that it is a fun sport and one of the ultimate team sports. We believe in being competitive without sacrificing our basic philosophy: the Griffins follow a path of inclusiveness, mutual respect, encouragement and good-humoured participation. Everyone gets to paddle at every regatta; it’s not an option! We also love to share a coffee, cake or meal after paddling, and we invite non-paddling family members to join in with this bit!
Diamond Phoenix is an all-female dragon boat club, with a diverse range of women from teenagers to over 40s. Dragon boating with Diamond Phoenix is a great way to get fit in a supportive environment. Our club caters for social and competitive paddlers.
In addition to dragon boat training, members enjoy social events and other fitness activities together, as well as competing at local, interstate and overseas regattas.
Our philosophy is Encouraging women in sport: happier, healthier, fitter!
From a modest beginning in 2003, when a group of teachers and parents from Canberra Grammar and Canberra Girls' Grammar schools combined to form the Canberra Grammar Flyers, the Dragon Flyers have steadily grown to be one of the largest and most successful dragon boat clubs in the ACT. Our paddling credentials have grown too. Dragon Flyers paddlers, sweeps and coaches have represented the ACT and Australia as part of the ACT Fire and the Australian Auroras. Our Grand Masters women have an outstanding list of international paddling achievements and are the top Grand Masters women crew in the ACT.
Dragons Abreast is a nationally registered charity that enables breast cancer survivors to get on with life after treatment through dragon boating. Research shows that paddling regularly has many health and social benefits and it is a great way to embrace life and resume an active lifestyle for those travelling the breast cancer journey.

Please notify us at the email address to confirm times. We not only paddle regularly, but we participate in local, interstate and international events.
