30 DAYS TO GO
We’ve had a great start to planning this season, with a lot of Nipper parents and members of the Youth Group volunteering for official and non-official jobs.
We are also putting together a Semaphore SLSC Junior Handbook/Policy Book that will contain all the information parents need to know for the upcoming season. The handbook will be available ~Week 3-4 of the season.
A friendly reminder to returning parents to please welcome and help out any new parents or kids that may look a bit lost at the start of the season. Semaphore SLSC has long been known as a Family Club and we want to ensure that the tradition continues.
Attire Requirements for ALL Training Sessions
With the start of the surf season just a month away, it is a good time to remind everyone of the dress requirements.
Nippers are required to wear a Semaphore SLSC skull cap, along with a broad brimmed hat, a long sleeved rashie/training top and a hi-vis top to all training sessions, including board training.
Accepted colours are yellow / pink / combination pink-yellow. Green and faded hi-vis tops will not be accepted as per Surf Life Saving SA guidelines.
** Please note: members that do not meet these requirements will not be allowed to train**
Junior Program Recruitment
We are still looking for someone to be the Under 8’s Assistant Age Group Manager. If you are interested please e-mail Steph on firstname.lastname@example.org.
It doesn’t stop there though. We are in dire need of parents to help with various roles including Officials at carnivals, Media Officers and Child Protection Officers. You don’t need to commit to doing these roles every week, but if you are interested in getting a bit more involved and can lend a hand every now and then throughout the season, please contact Steph on email@example.com.
