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.
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
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.
