STEP 1: MEMBERSHIP PROCESS - HOW TO JOIN

NEW NIPPERS

Every child has a unique Surf Life Saving identity which is used throughout the child's progression through nippers and continues to hold information relating to all surf life saving awards as they progress through the Surf Life Saving movement (eg. Surf Safety Certificate through to Bronze Medallion, first aid etc). 

To start the process go to http://sls.com.au/join and then click the appropriate links. 

If you should experience any difficulties in renewing or creating a new portal account please call the Surf Lifesaving Portal Help Desk on 1300 724 006 or email: ithelp@slsa.asn.au

HOW TO JOIN - NEW PARENTS

NEW MEMBERS: Like any community sporting organisation Nippers is 100% dependent on volunteers. Whilst Committee members and age managers do the bulk of the work parents are often required to help out. For this reason we request all parents to be involved with volunteering at Cabarita Beach SLSC.

If you are not sure what to do or how you can help please don’t hesitate to ask. We are always in need of water safety to allow us to conduct water events. If you are interested in becoming qualified as a water safety officer, please see your Age Manager and ask to be included in the next Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) or Bronze Medallion (BM) course.

The online process for joining Cabarita Beach SLSC as an Active Associate Member is the same as for the nippers and is done via http://sls.com.au/join and then click on the appropriate links.

 If you do not have the ability to join online please download one of the following

- Associate Membership Form ($30) by clicking HERE 


HOW TO RENEW - EXISTING MEMBERS

RENEWING MEMBERS - with a PORTAL account simply login at http://portal.sls.com.au from there you can renew you membership, scroll down and sign your declaration (insurance cover by SLSA), check all your details, and pay your fees. 

Note: There is a club list of fees on the payment gateway - please remember to reference your payment. 

If you do not have a portal account as yet please go to http://sls.com.au/join and click on the appropriate links


FOR EXISTING MEMBERS - HOW TO CREATE A FAMILY GROUP

SLSA has initiated "Family Groups" to allow for bulk management of data and for renewing the membership of all members of a "Family Group" in one transaction. 

A "Family Group" can be created if all members that you wish to join to the group are already existing members of Cabarita Beach SLSC.  The "Primary" member (Mum or Dad) first creates a Portal account then applies to create a family group.  Once the group has been approved by the club the primary member can join family members to it.  To start the process go to http://portal.sls.com.au

Click here for instruction booklet for creating Family Groups


STEP 2: All New Adult Members must complete

"Volunteer/Student Declaration":

Download from HERE the SLSNSW Member Protection Declaration form 2017, complete it and bring it along on registration day with proof of ID (passport, drivers license).

VOLUNTEER/STUDENT DECLARATION FORM

 

The Commission for Children and Young People Act 1998, require Surf Life Saving New South Wales (SLSNSW) to ask all new members and volunteers and members renewing their membership after a leave of absence of at least one season, to sign the Volunteer/Student Declaration. 

All new members, and volunteers, over the age of 18 and those members under the age of 18 who work with children (eg: 16yr olds who help train the U/8 Nippers, provide water safety for Nippers, etc) MUST sign the Volunteer / Student Declaration ONCE ONLY. Members under 18 years can have a parent or guardian co-sign.  

It is an offence for prohibited persons to sign this declaration or to apply for or attempt to obtain, undertake or remain in child-related employment in any capacity, whether paid, volunteering or self-employed. The maximum penalty for falsely declaring that you are not a person prohibited from child related employment is 12 months imprisonment, 100 penalty units ($11,000) or both.  

The form must be fully completed, printed and signed and then brought to the club to verify the new members’ identity. Appropriate identifying documentation (Driver’s License, Passport etc) will need to be supplied to, and sighted by a club official when a member initially completes the declaration.  


 

STEP 3: Pool Proficiency:

If you are registering children you will still need to complete a proficiency swim prior to commencing nippers.

Download the "Pool Proficiency Form" from HERE, print this and have it signed off by a qualified assessor. Also note that this can be filled out during any squad or organised swim session that children may already be attending. You are also able to perform this proficiency swim on Sunday 24th September between 9am-12pm however we strongly urge you to have this proficiency done early to speed the process up on the day. 


STEP 4:  On the day

During the nipper sign-on days you will be required to bring the following with you:

  1. Completed pool proficiency form - signed by qualified assessor (refer to the form) and ticked off for the appropriate age group of the child
  2. Proof of identification for child joining nippers (birth certificate, passport etc).
  3. Proof of identification for parent/guardian (refer step 2 above)
  4. A copy of your receipt for payment of joining fees (online joining process can take payments by credit card or you can direct deposit as our EFT details are also show online) (alternatively you can pay on the day using cash although we prefer not to take cash).
