Welcome to SRDBA

Welcome to the online home of the Southeastern Regional Dragon Boat Association (SRDBA). We love this sport. We’re a group of volunteers who are working to grow the sport in our region of the country. We welcome those who are new to the sport, hoping to introduce them to the fun we have on the water. We also hope to provide a resource for those who are already hooked.

Southeastern Regional Dragon Boat Association (SRDBA) is a 501(c)3 organization serving the dragon boat community in the Southeastern region of the United States, and a regional organization of the United States Dragon Boat Federation. The Region consists of the eight great states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Important for 2021:

For participation in Team USA you must be a member of both SRDBA and USDBF.  Additionally, for Club Crew events (CCNC, CCWC, PACCC) you must also be a member of a club that is a member in good standing of the SRDBA.  However, athletes at all levels of competition are encouraged to support our local region, through participation in a dragon boat club, or through individual membership.

Current membership is effective through the end of 2021 for the SRDBA & USDBF.  Those for whom membership is required (for CCNC, CCWC, PACCC) you should be sure to register no later than March 1 for the USDBF to ensure timely production and mailing of your USDBF membership card, and register no later than March 31 for the SRDBA.  Unlike the USDBF, the SRDBA does not send out membership cards.

The USDBF membership fee is $55 the first year, and $35 per consecutive year after the first year.  Note that lapsed registrations will again incur the $55 upon renewal from the lapse.  Membership fees are non-refundable.  And as you are already aware, membership for the SRDBA is $15.  Please make sure you have your correct team listed with the USDBF and SRDBA by the due dates.

Please provide correct address information, as you will be mailed your USDBF identification card, which you will need for credentials at USDBF events such as the Club Crew National Championships.
