Saturday 4 December
10:00am – U13 RnR training

12:45pm – Nipper training. This week due to the Robe senior carnival we will be short on Age Group Assistants and water cover.  Could any Bronze medallion qualified parents please bring their gear to join the Nippers water cover patrol.  We would also ask that parents offer their assistance to Age Group Managers to assist with beach activities and supervision of nippers.  A gentle reminder that we are not a childcare service and the expectation is for parents to follow their age groups at training to provide support when needed.
Branch Carnival #2 Saturday 11th December
A reminder that parents will need to advise their respective Age Group Managers by the end of training this Saturday (4th December) if their child is intending to compete at the second branch carnival.  We encourage as many nippers as possible to participate and gain valuable competition experience in this new format.  U8/U9/U10 Age groups will be located at Grange SLSC and U11/U12/U13 Age groups will be located at Henley.  Carnivals will be run at the same time normal nippers training is run on a Saturday.

Help Needed for Carols by the Lake

This year the West Lakes Rotary Club will again hold a Carols by the Lake Event on Sunday 6 December.  It will be a primarily kids focus and only run from 5:00pm to 7:30pm

The Rotary Club has requested the assistance from Semaphore SLSC in the setup and pull down of the infrastructure for the event. 

Help is ne eded on the day from 2pm (set up temporary fencing) and at its conclusion at 7.30pm (take down the temporary fencing).  Both activities take about an 1 to 1.5 hours depending on the numbers.

The West Lakes Rotary Group are great supporters of our club so it would be great for us to help them out in this small way. Most recently they kindly volunteered their time to run our Catering Tent at the recent Branch Carnival with all proceeds coming back to the club and are sponsoring two new nipper boards that will soon be delivered, not to mention the sponsorship of our Male and Female Volunteer of the Year Awards which see around $1000 coming back to the club in some way so it would be great for us to help them out in this small way.

If you are able to volunteer some time, either 2pm, or 7.30pm or both please let me know via return email to pres@semaphoreslsc.com.au or text me on 0459 442 802.

Come and Try Nippers – only 3 weeks remaining

Semaphore SLSC ‘s 2021/22 Come and Try Program is drawing to a close, last week a Come and Try session is available is 18th Dec and as we have another Branch Carnival (at Grange and Henley) on the 11th of Oct that leaves only 3 weeks till the programs wraps up for another year. Nipper training for members will continue till early/mid march.

If your aged 5 – 12 years old and interested in trying surf life saving? Come down to the Semaphore SLSC club and join our Come and Try Program!

The Semaphore Come and Try Program costs $20 and allows Nippers new to surf life saving to attend 3 Saturday sessions anytime between October and December.

The $20 will be deducted from your membership if you decide to sign up for the rest of the season (mid March 2022).

You can register from 11:30 am most Saturdays during the Nipper season. It is a good idea to arrive early to complete the waiver and health forms or short cut the process by downloading the letter, waiver, health and asthma (if applicable) forms from the website and fill them out before you come, as it can get busy, especially at the start of the season.

Nipper training starts with a muster at 12:45pm so be early to sign in. Training finishes around 3pm
