SAFETY NOTES:

Club cap is now mandatory at all training sessions including board training.

Call out for Water Cover this Friday for board training any assistance in this area is greatly appreciated. 

R and R Training 

RnR Training is back this Saturday for all Nippers from Under 11 to Under 13. There are 2 time slots that are available

Before Training 11am   OR   After Training 3pm

Meet Coaches Raelene and John at the usual muster spot just before these times.

Whats RnR you ask – R&R is a competition based on the simulated rescue and resuscitation of a patient.  It combines resuscitation skills, marching and drill with teams judged against set criteria.  There are RnR Competitions at every carnival and there is a State Carnival scheduled for 16th Feb 2019, at which medals are awarded.

Want to know what its all about come and have a look

March Past Training 

Straight after RnR Training Match Past training is on.  Meet Coach Mandy at the usual Muster Spot around 12:55pm to head to the Beach for March Past.  March Past is open for all competing Nippers from Under 8 to Under 13’s.

Again a March Past competition is held at all carnivals and at State Championships for medals.

The March Past is an example of the significant impact returned servicemen had on the development of surf lifesaving and competition in the early days. In past years, clubs were not able to compete at carnivals unless they fielded a March Past team or someone marching with the club standard.  March Past maintains the growth of club spirit, mateship, the carrying of the flag, the club colours, consolidating the trade mark of surf lifesaving in Australia and around the world.

March Past competition provides a platform for discipline and club spirit throughout surf clubs of Australia, consolidating its long and successful history and future.

Ist Junior Carnival – Glenelg

The first Junior Carnival is on Sunday 18th November at Glenelg.  Next week your Age Group Managers will be requesting nominations for this Carnival.  It is important that you consider your response as this year SLSSA will not allow late entries.

Semaphore SLSC Media – Carnival Photographers (no experience necessary)

SLSSA have relaxed the maximum of 5 Club Media Personnel (photographers) this allows us to spread the responsibility for taking photos at carnivals. In response to this I would like to ask for nominations from among parents of all age groups.  This way we can pass a camera and vest from group to group to group to accredited people to take photos for your Age Group.

Benefits include being able to be inside the competition area during events, availability of more photos of each Age Group to display at the post Carnival wrap ups and during the season, as well as more for parents to access of their own child.

No previous experience is required, what is required is a Police Clearance (a free one can be organised through the club), a Club Media Form and a short training session with Steph Breden on how the cameras work and your away.

Email Steph on juniorsec@semaphoreslsc.com.au or see me at training.
