Paddling Sessions

  • Training is conducted at Aquatic Reserve, corner of Bower Road and Old Port Road (enter from Bower Road). Parking is available.

  • We train on the following days:
    • Saturday mornings at 9:00am
    • Monday evenings at 5:30pm 
    • Wednesday mornings at 9:00am.
  • The Wednesday morning training is open to members of all Dragon Boat SA members.

  • Wear clothes which are comfortable (eg shorts, ¾ pants, T-shirt) - you may get a bit wet! Also your feet will get wet so wet shoes or crocs are required. Bring a bottle of water which you can take out in the boat and please wear sunscreen as appropriate.

  • A club locker is available to store your car keys and valuables while you are out on the water. However we do not recommend bringing anything valuable to training.

  • Paddles are provided.
  • Buoyancy vests are mandatory, and will also be provided by the Club. You have the option of bringing your own buoyancy vest if you prefer.


You will be covered by Dragonboat SA (DBSA) insurance.


Waiwilta is not racing in the current season.


During the year the club conducts social functions, with celebration of Chinese New Year, Christmas and end of season as a minimum. In addition members go for coffee after training every Saturday and Wednesday at a local cafe.
