Parent/Carer General Membership

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.

It is compulsory for at least ONE Parent/Carer to register as a General Member and complete the Member Protection Form, but it’s so much more fun and safer if all Parents/Carers register!

Due to limited numbers available in the Under 6s Age Group priority will be given to new members on the following basis:
• 1st priority: Family has a sibling already registered in an older age group
• 2nd priority: Parent/Carer is an Official of Clovelly Nippers, or will be one in the Under 6s for 2016-17 season.
• 3rd priority: Parent/Carer is a Senior Active, Active Reserve, Veteran or Long Service member of the Club
