Parental Supervision during Training
Whilst it is a requirement of the Semaphore Surf Club for you, or a nominated guardian, to oversee your child’s fun on the beach during training, its also a great opportunity for you to interact with your child and other parents in a great community activity. Semaphore has long been referred to as a Family Club, and we believe that Surf Life Saving is a fulfilling family experience for all.
Uniting SA – Christmas Appeal
In a bid to help less fortunate families we are asking for all our Nippers to support the Uniting SA Christmas Appeal. Please drop a small non perishable gift into the box by the Christmas/Rescue Board. All donations will be delivered to Uniting SA on Friday 14th December.
Ist Junior Carnival – Glenelg **UPDATE**
The first Junior Carnival is on this Sunday (18th Nov) at Glenelg. All nominations have been entered. Only the nominated juniors entered into the Event System will be allowed to compete.
The undated events schedule is now available (see below), and a carnival time table will be distributed via your Age Group manager on the day as usual.
As the events start at 8:30am we are requesting all participants to be on the beach at 8am.
Please note – that there is no RnR or March Past scheduled for this carnival, and no points will be awarded to clubs. As such while flags and sprints will be run as usual, Water Events will be conducted as 2 rounds with all participants having the opportunity to participate in both rounds if they want to. Board Rescue and Iron Person take a bit longer so they have been scheduled either just before lunch or at the end of the day and will probably only see 1 round completed but will most likely run over time, this means that we need to be sure that the kids still get time to eat appropriately.
Warning – Parking will most likely be an 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
Extra Training Opportunity
An opportunity has presented itself for U13’s to train with the youth/senior group on Wednesday nights at Wests Lakes. Participants must be prepared to paddle on a mal, and while boards are available to be loaned from the club, you must organise the pick up of a mal from the club prior to training.
To participate you must contact Sean McKenzie on 0428 953 000.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Reminder – Semaphore Juniors Facebook Group
Semaphore SLSC Juniors now have their own Facebook group. This is a closed Facebook group meant for Parents of Semaphore Surf Life Saving Club Nippers and we will be posting all Junior Training and Carnival information via this group throughout the season. Use the link below to request access.
Please note that you will be asked 2 questions which will allow us to ensure that members of the Group are restricted to Parents/Guardians. This is to ensure the privacy of our Nippers should we post photos etc. Only those confirmed as members from the questions will be granted access.
