Updated Club Contacts

Well it was certainly an exciting time at the Club this week with the unveiling of our new signage and a live weather cross from Nine News.

There are many new developments at the Club to coincide with the new look building.

Please note the following new emails for Club Communications and enquiries:

1st Junior Report for Season 2018/19

The 2018/19 season is just around the corner with our 1st training planned for 6th October 2018.  More information will be sent soon but this is what we know so far:
  • Training will muster on the lawns on the southern side of the clubrooms at 12:45 sharp
  • Training activities to start at 1pm, either on the beach or other as required
  • Training will generally finish at 3pm, but on occasion there will be planned club events after this time like a club swim, iron person or run, with a few fun activities thrown in to the mix.
  • There may be instances where we move training due to conditions (e.g. heat) but this information will be released via SMS prior to the day.
  • We are in the process of setting up a Facebook group specifically for junior parents to increase Information flow.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who completed our short survey regarding last year’s program. The Junior panel will review the responses soon and act accordingly.  One area that was highlighted was surrounding the amount and quality of information. We will be drilling down further in this area soon with a follow up survey.
 
Junior Equipment Moving day – Assistance Required
Calling all Nipper families – We can finally move the Junior Equipment back in to the Clubrooms and require assistance for couple of hours to do so.
When: Sunday 16th September at 12pm. 
Text Steph Breden on 0423 046 362 if you can help out.

We are still searching for volunteers to fill the following roles:
Under 7’s (Sandcrabs) Age Group Manager

This year we are impressing on all parents that we want your active involvement in training.  No Life Saving experience required.
So make sure you wear something you can get wet, and get set to have some fun with our youngsters.
 
Specialist Coaches 
We wish to thank Jeff Bampton and Brad Tunbridge for volunteering to do some work in this space.  Jeff for Beach and water skills and Brad for some Surf Ed training – D.R.A.B.C.D (CPR etc).
I would also like to re invite nominations for this crucial role.  If you have any interest in passing on your skills contact us at juniorsec@semaphoreslsc.com.au.  Again I stress this is not to be a full-time role. We are happy to work in with you and your availability.  
 
March Past
We are looking for a coach or coaches for March Past. Kelly and Brooke have announced their retirement from March Past Coaching this year.  We wish to thank them for their patience and persistence over the last few years.  Our A Team won a Bronze medal at States last season no doubt due to all your had work.  Thanks Again, You will be missed.  This, however, leaves us with a large hole as far as March Past is concerned.  Send your details to juniorsec@semaphoreslsc.com.au if interested in filling this crucial role.  I don’t recall ever not fielding a Junior March Past Team so getting this up and running before the first carnival would be great.

Bar & Bistro Staff Recruitment

With the renovations complete and the relocation back into the Clubrooms well progressed, we will be looking to re-open the Bar & Bistro to the general public in the coming weeks.   As a result, we have a few positions available within our Bar & Bistro teams, with the opportunity for member applications to be considered first.  Available roles include:

  • Bar Staff
  • Bistro Servery Assistants
  • Kitchen Hands

Some Hospitality experience is preferred, however, on the job training can be provided.  Bar Staff applicants will need to have a ‘Responsible Service of Alcohol’ qualification. The positions are casual & will therefore require you to be flexible in availability.

Should this appeal to you, please register your interest with an accompanying letter outlining your experience & suitability for the role (together with a CV) to Adam Sikorski via email to treasurer@semaphoreslsc.com.au by Friday 7th of September 2018.
