In no particular order, the Subsonix Dragon Boat Club‘s goals are to:
  • Have fun and keep fit!
  • Recruit heavily, fundraise effectively, work heartily and manage intelligently, to ensure the long term success of the Club.
  • Field three Divisions of sport, social and school teams in the local competition, entering both Tens and Twenties in all categories of open, mixed and Women’s (where possible).
  • Promote dragon boating as a very friendly and social team sport, and provide this at minimum expense to members.
  • Develop our Club spirit and unity, by encouraging each member to actively become involved with the welfare and safety of all other members, and the Club as a whole.
  • Give financial and other support to those less fortunate than ourselves, through acts of generosity and selflessness – further enhancing our Club spirit.
  • Support and promote our Club sponsors at all times through networking, advertising and ambassadorial conduct.
  • Support and compete in all designated races, and achieve finals berths in two or more Categories and Divisions of the local South Australian Dragon Boat Championships.
