Parent/Carer General Membership

It is compulsory for at least ONE Parent/Carer to register as a General Member. All Nipper Parents/Carers are strongly encouraged to become General Members of Clovelly SLSC for the following reasons:

  • You can’t assist in activities unless you are registered.
  • You won’t get as much fun out of Sundays unless you’re helping out.
  • If you injure yourself at Nippers, you will be covered by insurance.
  • You will be able to enjoy a refreshing drink on Sundays at the upstairs Tom Caddy Bar.

Members Expectations

In accordance with our registration policy, membership is by invitation only. Please refer to “Registration Priorities” on this webpage. Once an invitation is received, new members must:

  • Complete Online Registration and Online Payment.
  • Provide Proof of Age Required (Original Australian Birth Certificate or Original Passport)
  • Once Payment received, your child must pass the Preliminary Skills Evaluation
  • If the child has not met the proficiency requirement by 18 October 2020 without an accepted extenuating reason (eg. sickness/injury) by Nippers’ Committee they will have their registration revoked and monies reimbursed.
  • Parent/Carer involvement is integral to the Clovelly Nippers success. There needs to be ONE Water Safety Volunteer for every FIVE Nippers.
