Nipper board training starts 23rd October

The first nipper board training for the season will be held on Friday 23rd October. Please meet on the grass area outside the club at 5pm for a 5:15pm start.

All kids must be signed in at the beginning and end of training. You will also need to remember to bring your hi-vis top and Semaphore skull cap.

Please note you must have your swim proficiency to take part in board training. This is to ensure the club provides the safest possible environment for our children.

If you achieved your swim proficiency last year, this will carry over until the beginning of December and you are therefore able to attend board training.

If you haven’t yet got your swim proficiency, there will be opportunities to do this during upcoming Saturday training sessions.

Proficiency information for the 2020/21 season

Hello everyone,

We are trying some new things this season to make things a bit easier and to get through our proficiencies a bit quicker. Please see the attached flyer about dates for proficiencies this season.

Please make sure you are financial and that your online proficiencies have been completed.

There will be information coming out later about SRC to Bronze Course and new Bronze Course and also IRB Crew and Driver Courses.

Thanks everyone,

First aid course – 1st November

North Haven SLSC are looking to run a First Aid course on Sunday 1st November – 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

The course will be run through First in Sports First Aid – but it is exactly the same course and the same price as that offered by Surf Life Saving SA; for members that is $100. The accreditation you would receive is accepted by surf lifesaving. 

If you need to do your first aid as part of your bronze award you should go through SLSSA because they are offering the same course to those doing their bronze for only $50. 

Members of the public pay $170 at both.

At the moment North Haven SLSC are wanting to gauge how many people are interested in doing the course. They need a minimum of 12 people and a maximum of 20.

If you are interested in doing this course please contact Andrew Edwards at  or Elaine Farmer from North Haven SLSC at
