4th February 2016

At its January meeting, the Board of DBNSW approved the terms of reference for a new sub-committee, a Paddler Development Committee. The purpose of the Committee is to give the Board advice on the development of paddlers. This means from juniors through to grand masters. The terms of reference for this new committee can be found here.

The Board is now seeking applications from suitable candidates to become members of this important committee. Critical to the committee’s work will be the development of an athlete pathway, which clearly outlines the “journey” a paddler can undertake in our sport. Whether a paddler wants to be a happy participant or a proud Aurora, the pathway will show the way.

The Board is seeking applications from members with a broad range of coaching experiences in dragon boat racing. If you feel as though you have the credentials and the desire to make a contribution, please complete the form here and return it to the CEO of DBNSW by 4pm on Monday 7 March 2016.
