The Auroras are Australia’s national dragon boat team. Each season DBACT is proud to acknowledge the drive and dedication of its paddlers that train all year round to be selected for the Australian Auroras.
A FRIENDLY REMINDER
To meet Australian Auroras obligations, DBACT paddlers selected for the Auroras are required to nominate and paddle for the ACT Fire representative squad.
ACT Fire is the name of our Territory's representative squad. There is a category to suit all ages from Juniors to Senior C.
Information for the 2018 Australian Championships will be added later in the year.

Key dates for ACT Fire 2016-2017
This season we will see two camps for our ACT Fire Campaign which will be held over two days for all paddlers who want to represent the ACT. Our aim this season is to field crews in most race categories and to set an even higher performance standard than last year. To achieve this goal the selection camp will include an on water component held at Lotus Bay, and a physical testing component held at the Australian Institute of Sport.
AGE GROUPS – Premiers to Senior C
Wednesdays 5:50am - 7:15am, from 14th December onwards (no training 28th December).
A second round of benchmarking will occur on 12 February 8:30am - 2:30pm (Sunday) to assist in finalising premier and senior crew selection.
AGE GROUP – JUNIORS
Selection Camp – Lotus Bay and the Australian Institute of Sport
This will be held on 12 February from 8:30am - 4:30pm to coincide with the benchmarking of the premier and senior divisions.
If you are able to assist with all or part of the camp, or have any questions, please contact Sal Bromley, ACT Fire Head Coach at email@example.com. Please advise by Sunday 5 February if you can assist to allow Sal and her coaching team time to build a volunteer schedule.
