All registration and renewal enquires, please contact Julie

Registrations 2020-2021 Season

Each season Clovelly Nippers has a high demand of new Nippers applying for enrolment. Clovelly Beach has a limited beach space. To ensure safety at all times, registration numbers are limited.

COVID-19 restrictions could further impact these registration numbers and we are awaiting further advice/approval from NSW Health & Randwick Council.

Due to the nature of nippers and its large numbers, COVID-19 restrictions may bring operational and logistical challenges this upcoming season.

Our Nippers Committee are working diligently in the background over the coming weeks and months and are currently seeking advice from NSW Health and Randwick Council.

All going well, RENEWALS for existing Nippers for the 2020-2021 season will open in mid-July 2020. All existing families will be notified via email with instructions on how to renew via the SLSA Members Portal.

Siblings of existing nippers should email on 1st August for instructions on how to apply.
