Invictus Dragon Boat Club was established in March 2020 with a vision to introduce the sport of dragon boating to more Canberrans, encourage ex-paddlers back to the sport and provide opportunities for our members and interstate club members to broaden their paddling experiences by competing at local, interstate and international events. We are a friendly, vibrant club with an amazing team spirit. Our team strength and unity has seen us improve every year and some might say we are a club to watch!
We train and race hard, with our results reflecting our core values of inclusiveness, commitment and strength. Our members’ dedication has resulted in 11 members competing with the 2023 ACT State Crews across senior categories as well as a 2023 Auroras member.
The Invictus Senior A Women's crews hard work paid off in 2023 with them acheiving a gold medal and the title of Australian Champions in the 200m small boat category at the Australian Dragon Boat Championships 2023.
Our name is inspired by Invictus written by William Henley the last two lines are our Club motto - "I am the master of my fate ... I am the captain of my soul".
If you have the drive to compete and are looking for friendship and fitness, Invictus is the club for you!!
