R and R Training 

RnR Training is back this Saturday for all Nippers from Under 11 to Under 13. There are 2 time slots that are available

Before Training 11am   OR   After Training 3pm

Meet Coaches Raelene and John at the usual muster spot just before these times.

Whats RnR you ask – R&R is a competition based on the simulated rescue and resuscitation of a patient.  It combines resuscitation skills, marching and drill with teams judged against set criteria.  There are RnR Competitions at every carnival and there is a State Carnival scheduled for 16th Feb 2019, at which medals are awarded.

Want to know what its all about come and have a look

March Past Training 

Straight after RnR Training Match Past training is on.  Meet Coach Mandy at the usual Muster Spot around 12:55pm to head to the Beach for March Past.  March Past is open for all competing Nippers from Under 8 to Under 13’s.

Again a March Past competition is held at all carnivals and at State Championships for medals.

The March Past is an example of the significant impact returned servicemen had on the development of surf lifesaving and competition in the early days. In past years, clubs were not able to compete at carnivals unless they fielded a March Past team or someone marching with the club standard.  March Past maintains the growth of club spirit, mateship, the carrying of the flag, the club colours, consolidating the trade mark of surf lifesaving in Australia and around the world.

March Past competition provides a platform for discipline and club spirit throughout surf clubs of Australia, consolidating its long and successful history and future.

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 in to 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.

Reminder – Semaphore Juniors Facebook Group

Semaphore SLSCJuniors 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.
