About our club

Marist Dragons is a well-established community club that paddles from a boatshed on the Lane Cove River behind Marist Sisters’ College, Woolwich. Our members come from diverse backgrounds and walks of life, and range in age from 11 to 60-plus. Some had never paddled before; others have been members of the Auroras, the Australian national dragon boat team.

The club is registered with Dragon Boats NSW, and over the warmer months (Covid-permitting) competes in regattas including the Chinese New Year races all the way up to the national championships.  If your focus is more on fun and fitness, that’s fine. There’s a place in the boat for everyone.

Safety is a priority. All sessions are supervised by experienced coaches and sweeps, and follow current Covid-safe recommendations. 

If you want to give dragon boating a go, you can enjoy up to five free Marist Dragons training sessions. To book, phone 0430 448 655 or email maristdragonsinfo@gmail.com

When you realise you love dragon boating (and we’re sure you will), you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the modest cost of membership - much less than joining a gym. And if you’re a school student, you can use your Active Kids voucher to cover fees. Marist Dragons  is a registered provider.
