Class - Sports & Social teams
ASA also incorporates Mannum Paddlesteamers, who at times participate in regattas in Adelaide.
You don't need to be a breast cancer survivor to join - just have the desire to be part of a club that promotes breast cancer awareness and the fact that "Men get breast cancer too".
We enjoy being on the water and participate in DBSA regattas at West Lakes, as well as participating in:
- Masters events both locally, intrastate and interstate
- International events when the opportunity arises (Wellington NZ 2011, Venice 2013 & 2017 as well as completing a 55k paddle down the Ord River in the Kimberley region of northern Western Australia)
- and participating in DBSA come and try events locally and in rural areas of South Australia
... as well as offering support and camaraderie to each other.
ASA is a member of Dragon Boat SA (DBSA), Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA), the International Breast Cancer Commission (IBCC) and the Male Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) based in USA.
Pump up the resistance to cancer - Preliminary results from a study under way at the University of Western Sydney suggest breast cancer survivors who undertake resistance training produce high levels of "natural killer cells" that can prevent a relapse - extract from article by Neil Keen: The Adelaide Advertiser, Monday January 14, 2013.
Training is predominately held at the Aquatic Centre, Bower Road, West Lakes on:
- Tue and Thur 5.45 - 7.00 pm
- Sat 8.45 - 10.00 am
On occasions we also train on the Port River.
It's always best to ring before coming out for the first time, as at times, training sessions may change.
