Age Manager sought as Nippers gets off to a great start!

We still have one position in our junior team available.  We are seeking an Under 8 Age Manager.

This could be your chance to get down on the beach and lead our youngsters in a healthy weekend activity that will give them skills for life.

No surf life saving skills are required, just a commitment to support children to grow and learn in a Club that prides itself on a family atmosphere.  Support and training will be available throughout the season.

Meantime board training will start next Friday (October 27th).  We require a minimum of four people for water cover so please see Junior Convener Bruce Moseley on Saturday to register.  Without the required water cover training will be cancelled due to safety regulations.

On a positive note we had a great turn out for the first Nippers session on Saturday with 59 registered come and try’s.

A reminder that Under 8’s are on Canteen duty this week.

See you on the beach again this Saturday.  Meet on the grass outside the Clubrooms at 12:45pm.

Semaphore SLSC makes the news, for all the right reasons

And why wouldn’t you visit the Semaphore SLSC Balcony to do a weather cross on a balmy evening?!  Channel Nine’s Jessica Braithwaite dropped in on Semaphore SLSC today to do her weather crosses and she was all smiles.  Tough gig hey!

 

If you haven’t seen the sunset from our Balcony you must come for a visit!  It is truly a magnificent sight to see.

Head to the Bar and Bistro with the Bar open from 5pm Thursday and Friday nights and Bistro meals starting at 6pm.  Enjoy a drink on the balcony Saturday and Sunday from 4pm.

Nippers hit the beach!

We’ve had a wonderful start to the Nippers season for 2017/2018.  Semaphore turned on the weather with our youngsters enjoying a full program of activities.  It’s such a wonderful thing to see the children of the community involved in such a healthy lifestyle.  A great environment for the entire family.

Plenty of opportunities to participate in a Come and Try day before the end of December.  You can purchase 3 “Come and Try” sessions for $15.  These sessions can be used on any Saturday training afternoon up until December 31.

Training begins with a get together in age groups next to the Club at 12:45pm with beach activities between 1-3pm.

 

Rescue Ready facility officially opened

The Rescue Ready Facility has been officially opened. Senator Simon Birmingham doing the official honours on behalf of the Federal Government who funded the project.  The new facility has already become an invaluable asset to the Club, allowing for easy start up of patrols so that we can be on the beach for the community.
