About us

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!
