Junior Report – 28th Nov 2018

Announcement

On behalf of the Board of Management we would like to notify our members that Bruce Mosely has stepped down from the Junior Convenor role after serving in this position last year and the opening of this year. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude for all of the effort that Bruce has put into the club in this capacity and sincerely hope for his continued involvement, wherever the opportunity may arise.

Effective immediately the Board has appointed Ian Biggs as the Junior Convenor. We are sure you will recognise Ian, as he has been working with Bruce over his time in the role.

Uniting SA Christmas Appeal

 

**DON’T FORGET **

This year we are sponsoring the Uniting SA Christmas Appeal.

Whilst our initial focus was injecting a Social Justice aspect into our Nippers program there is an opportunity for the entire club membership base to be involved in this rewarding experience.

Just grab a tag from the board and fill it in, apply it to a small non-perishable gift and drop it into the box next to the Christmas/Nipper Board located in the North West Corner next to the Bar before Friday 14th December, when they will be delivered to Uniting SA.

We thank you in advance for your generosity.

Port Christmas Pagent

This Saturday 17th of November 2018

Meeting on Lipson St, Port Adelaide at around 5 – 5:30pm with the parade starting at 6pm.   We’re in section D –  I’m pretty sure its thats same section as last year so that puts us around the front of the railway museum.  But don’t worry You’ll see us well have a BIG RED SURF BOAT.

Please wear what ever Club gear you have, for the nippers their club hats or caps and training shirts are a must, a water bottle won’t go astray too.

We will be giving preference to the U7’s – U9’s for the Boat so please take that into consideration.  Parents please be aware that you are expected to stay with your kids, for one if they’re in the boat we need to ensure its adequately supervised whilst its in motion.

The kids on the ground will have plenty to do as well, e.g. giving out lollies and having lots of fun is just a part.

Thanks in advance for our float driver Gregg Newman, both for the driving and the car to tow the boat.

SURF Ed Requirement – CPR Training

As part of the Surf Ed for U13’s this year it is a requirement for RnR States and State Champ Competitors to have attained a SLSSA CPR Certificate. This Training will be available on 2nd December 2018 at the Club. Please Email Steph at juniorsec@semaphoreslsc.com.au to confirm your attendance. Please let me know if there is no possibility of being able to attend this scheduled training.

**Note** If you have attained an SRC Certificate this training is not required. 

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. Only the nominated juniors entered into the Event System will be allowed to compete. Conversely if you nominate and don’t show you may adversely effect a team event.  The events scheduled for this Carnival are shown below.

** Update** It may be likely that there will be no RnR competition at this carnival and That MachPast will be moved to the end of the Day.  It has been identified that the ability for competitors and there supporting parents to be on thebeach at the required times are a potential issue.  There will be allot of space dedicated in normal parking areas to storage for the international teams visiting for The World Surf Life Saving Championships scheduled for the same week. http://www.lifesaving2018.com
