Existing Junior Members

Please complete your renewal as per the instructions in this link.

Ensure that all details are correct and current.

 

New Junior Members

For nippers registering in in the U6 age group, the child MUST turn 5 on or prior to the 30th September 2016.

Important message for nippers turning five years old in October.

For children that turn five between the 1st of October and the 31st October, they may not register and cannot start nippers until their 5th birthday. These children will then have to repeat the Under 6 group the following year so that they then align with children in their correct age group. Please ensure that you understand this if registering an Under 6 nipper in October as this is a Surf Lifesaving NSW requirement and we must adhere to this rule. If repeating Under 6s will be an issue, it may be best to hold back your nipper to start in the following year. 

Please complete your registration as per the instructions in this link. Go to https://join.sls.com.au and follow the instructions in the link provided. 

ALL new members MUST supply a copy of their birth certificate to confirm age category to the registrar.

 

Proficiency

Please ensure that you are aware of the proficiency requirements for your child’s age category.

Please note dates for proficiency evaluations, these can be found in the calendar and the proficiency requirement information.

ALL junior (nipper) members MUST complete the required nipper’s proficiency standards in order to participate in water activities on beach days and to enter carnivals.

 

Junior Fees

For the 2017/18 season junior registration fees are:

  • U6 & U7 – $65

Payment of fees to be made through online payment during the online registration process.

There is a $30 competitor levy for nippers in age groups U8-U14 who wish to compete in carnivals throughout the season. The levy must be paid before a nipper will be entered into a carnival. 

 

Uniform

Nippers are required to wear skull caps and hi-vis pink singlets as per SLSA requirements. These along with a range of club clothing can be purchased from the club.  Please contact our clothing co-ordinator for further information.

Junior (Nipper) Parent Requirement

It is a requirement of Redhead SLSC that at least one parent or carer per family join the club.  By joining the Club a parent/ carer is then able to actively assist in activities.  The cost for a parent registration is $60. This will cover insurances, allow you to use club facilities etc.  For members who are active in patrols and competition please see the Senior member registration information.

The Nipper parent joining Redhead SLSC MUST complete the online registration. Unless fully completed the registration cannot be finalised and therefore will result in delays.
