Dragon Sports Association (DSA) is a dragon boat racing club in Rhodes, Sydney. Established in 1983, DSA is one of Australia’s founding clubs and is proud to have been a part of the dragon boating community for over 30 years. The club has dedicated coaches and has had many paddlers selected for State and National representative teams over this time. DSA initiated a Juniors Program in 2014 for the under 18 and under 24 year old paddlers. It encourages and trains for leadership roles, such as becoming a sweep and joining the committee to actively participate in the club at every level. We would like to purchase two new 20 seat full size, championship dragon boats. The purpose of increasing our fleet is to enable us to hold regattas in our local community. This will benefit the sport of dragon boating by increasing awareness. It will encourage participation in the sport by people young and old, who live, work or attend school in the rapidly expanding surrounding suburbs. DSA would enjoy hosting such events showing off the fun aspect of becoming involved in our wonderful sport!
