Renew Nippers Membership

Renewals must be done online:

  • Go to the Surf Lifesaving Portal (https://portal.sls.com.au).
  • If you have not registered for access to the Portal or if you have forgotten your login details, there are links to help you.
  • Check your details are up to date by selecting from Update Personal Details from the Memberships menu. Particularly personal information and contact details.
  • Select Family from the Memberships menu.

  • Click the Renew Memberships link to renew the family members, including at least one parent/guardian.
  • Click to pay your family membership fee online. Then click the Pay Online button.
  • Pay to “Freshwater SLSC” and please list the name of every renewing member in the “payment details” box.

Questions?

 

How can you get cap/swimwear?

The shop will be open for the first few weeks from 8am at Sunday Nippers. It is located on the sand to the left of the roller door (when looking at the surf club from the water).

The shop will be open at the Freshwater Surf Club on Saturday 7 September (from 9am to midday). It may also be open on another weekend prior to the season starting – a message will be sent.

Our shop staff will be happy to answer your questions about the uniform or merchandise in person.

Also, our online shop is here: http://shop.freshwaterslsc.com/.

 

Does Freshwater Nippers participate in the Active Kids programme?

Yes, but only for online renewals. There is a guide here.

If you wish to utilise an Active Kids voucher for a new Nipper then please contact us.

 

How can I help?

You can let your Age Manager know that you would like to help on Sundays.

If your Nippers are competing in carnivals, parents will be required to help.

You can help us to safeguard your kids in the water by attaining the Bronze Medalion.

 

What will my Nipper learn?
