  • 2nd priority: Parent/Carer is a Senior Active, Active Reserve, Veteran or Long Service member of the Club.

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!

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