Canteen this Saturday – Gregg’s Back!!!

After a short but sweet absence Gregg returns this Saturday 22 Jan from 9am with his magnificent breakfast, lunch and post training offerings, see the menus below for details.



Post Training

This Saturday looks like it is going to be beautiful – a perfect day for hot coffee and brekkie on the balcony.

Canteen this Saturday, 15th January 2022

With the absence of our illustrious Canteen Manager Gregg the Club President (Paul) will be manning the kitchen before training this week with a modified light snack menu.

Open from 10:30 am for Toasted Sandwiches, Cold Rolls, and a Presidential specialty Flat Dogs (thats a hot dog made in a sandwich press). If you’ve ever been to Pt Adelaide Baseball Club you’ll know what I mean.

After training there will be a gold coin donation sausage sizzle, and Nippers will also get a Zooper Dooper.

Gregg will be back with his famous club breakfast menu next Saturday (22nd Jan)

R&R Training – Suspended

R&R Training is suspended for the foreseeable future. Given the close proximity that R&R competitors need to operate at as well as the possibility of Covid-19 transmission among unvaccinated children under 12 it has been decided to suspend both 5 person and 2 person R&R Training for the present time.

We will let you know when or if they will recommence this season.

Largs Bay Swim Centre – New Club Sponsor

We welcome Largs Bay Swim Center as a Bronze Sponsor of Semaphore SLSC. Many of our Club’s members have enjoyed a long relationship with the Center and this has lead to this great business coming on board as official Club Sponsors.

Many of our Nippers currently enjoy the learn to swim classes with some already graduated to the squad programs and as such have joined the majority of our Youth and Senior competitors.

In fact we would urge any Nipper wanting to be successful in surf competition, if not currently undertaking learn to swim or squad sessions, to do so. It is one of the most important skills in Surf Life Saving. Just because you can stay afloat in a pool doesn’t mean you can complete a 150m open water proficiency swim.

We even have a Club swim nights as part of the centre’s Aussies Squad on Wednesday nights from 7pm, or once graduated from the learn to swim program we have a squad for our Nippers simply to assist in building endurance for surf swimming.

Contact the Centre on 8341 6062 to ask about the right session for you or your children.

Covid Update 20 Nov

 As highlighted in the last update, Government direction can change quickly and dramatically. Accordingly, we will soon be returning to similar restrictions that were in place before Thursday’s COVID lock down. 

So, to reinforce where we are as a Club effective midnight Saturday 21 November 2020 until advised otherwise: 

Sport and Education 

  • Club gym will remain closed (this will be reviewed early next week); 
  • Change rooms and showers are closed (other than essential toilet use); 
  • All training activities are suspended with no Club equipment to be removed from the Club for personal use; 
  • Carnival events scheduled for remainder of November 2020 will not go ahead as planned; and 
  • Face to face proficiencies and training activities (i.e. Bronze Course) are postponed. 

Bar and Bistro next week will continue to trade however: 

  • Bistro will take place Thursday and Friday nights with bookings essential and a 10 person maximum per booking in place; 
  • Club hours will change on Saturday 28 November 2020 (4pm to 8pm); 
  • Club capacity will be significantly reduced with the reintroduction of the 4m2 rule; 
  • No standing consumption of alcohol (inside and outside); 
  • Seated dining only; and 
  • All members and non-members must sign in on entry and on exit 

For further clarity, this weekend as the lock down remains in place on Saturday the bar will not be open and no training will occur. The bar will however be open from 4pm Sunday 22 November 2020 under the rules highlighted above. 

In the interest of public safety, roving patrols with reduced numbers have been authorised for Saturday and will occur as roving patrols only for all future patrols until advised otherwise. Club Captain Andrew Edwards will coordinate this with individuals as required. 

Further targeted information will be provided through our social media, website and text/email facilities to keep you updated. For further SA Government Restrictions information https://www.covid-19.sa.gov.au/recovery

Stay safe and stay connected.
