March Past Training

With the appointment of Mandy Morphett as March Past Coach this season we can announce that March Past Training will start this Saturday 13th October from 12:00 to 12:30pm.

Mandy (previously a multiple medal winning march past coach) has returned after a few years break to take on our March Past Training. She is highly skilled and will bring an extra precision to our already successful March Past Teams.

Meet Mandy on grass on the southern side of the club

12pm this Saturday for March Past Training

We welcome Mandy back to Semaphore SLSC


Nipper Parent Information Session – Moved to 20th October

The Parent Information Session originally set for this Saturday (13th October) has been cancelled once we conform access to the upstairs area of the Club we will advise of a new date .  Apologies for any inconvenience.


Come and Try Update

After the weekend now have x Come and Try Nippers, and with the forecasted temps in the upper 20’s were sure to see more. 

With this in mind we are calling for old (but not extremely faded) hi-vis tops to supplement our supply for come and try.  Please drop them to the Come and Try desk downstairs on Saturday.

Or find Steph and give them to her.

Remember: if you see someone looking a bit doubtful or lost please reach out and lend a hand.  Semaphore has long been known as the Family Club and we want to keep that tradition going in action as well as name and spirit.

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.


Semaphore SLSC Media – Carnival Photographers (no experience necessary)

SLSSA have relaxed the maximum of 5 Club Media Personnel (photographers) this allows us to spread the responsibility for taking photos at carnivals. In response to this I would like to ask for nominations from among parents of all age groups.  This way we can pass a camera and vest from group to group to group to accredited people to take photos for your Age Group.

Benefits include being able to be inside the competition area during events, availability of more photos of each Age Group to display at the post Carnival wrap ups and during the season, as well as more for parents to access of their own child.

No previous experience is required, what is required is a Police Clearance (a free one can be organised through the club), a Club Media Form and a short training session with Steph Breden on how the cameras work and your away.

Email Steph on juniorsec@semaphoreslsc.com.au or see me at training.
