Dragon Sports Association (DSA) is a competitive dragon boat racing club based in Rhodes. Established in 1983, DSA is one of the founding clubs of the sport in Australia, and has a proud 40 year history of competing at the highest levels of the sport. We cater to both new and experienced members, young and old and from all cultural backgrounds. 


As a club we have a strong team spirit which we believe has been the key to our success at the state, national and international level. 

We also support our members to achieve their own personal goals whether it is to get fit, meet new people or represent Australia in dragon boating. Many of our paddlers have gone on to represented in the Sydney Metro Regional team, NSW state team, and the Australian national team - the Auroras.

Our members also enjoy social activities such as City to Surf, Cockatoo Cup Outrigger Canoe race, Park Run, hikes and regular brunches and dinners. At DSA, we believe that it’s not just about the racing results on the water, but it’s also the connection we have with our paddling family.
