Member Protection Declaration Forms Now Required – New for the 2016/2017 Season – New & Existing Members Must Complete
ALL members both renewing and new MUST fill out a declaration and submit it to a committee volunteer at the Proficiency Swim on Sunday 18th September between 1:00pm-3:00pm at Balance Mayfield. Forms may be downloaded below and must be presented with the supporting photo ID. Please understand that this is a requirement from SLSA and will be a required across all Surf Clubs in NSW. This is in addition to the Working With Children Check. If you submitted a WWCC number to the registrar last year this has been kept on file and will not be required again this year. Registrations will not be finalised until such time as ID has been sighted.
If you are unable to make the Proficiency Swim (Sunday 18th September - 1:00pm-3:00pm) you may provide the declaration and ID at the Information Day on Sunday 9th October - 9:00am-11:00am. Due to insurance and health and safety requirements your child CANNOT attend Nippers until you are completely registered and correct fees paid, so we strongly urge you to attend the Information Day.
Even with the introduction of the WWCC, the SLSNSW Member Protection Declaration form still needs to be completed by members. While the WWCC looks specifically at national criminal history and workplace misconduct in relation to child-related work, the SLSNSW Member Protection Declaration is designed to make members aware of their responsibilities in relation to criminal charges more broadly, anti-doping violations, and any other matters which could constitute risk to members, employees, volunteers, athletes or reputation.

Proficiency Swim - Sunday 18th September 1:00pm-3:00pm - Balance Mayfield (Industrial Dr & William Street, Mayfield) cost $6 per child
Before attending, please make sure you have:
If you are unable to attend the proficiency swim it is your responsibility to obtain a signed proficiency swim from a qualified swim teacher and email this to email@example.com
For more information on the requirements go to Junior Participation Proficiency.
We are a volunteer organisation and rely heavily on parental/family involvement and assistance. Part of signing up your child/ren you are agreeing to the following terms. This year we will be implementing a "no help, no award" system where we will require each family to assist in the smooth running and organisation of the Nippers. Each family will be required to complete a number of tasks throughout the season. If they are not completed your child/ren will be ineligible for awards at the Presentation Day. We appreciate your cooperation, assistance and time, as we hope you appreciate ours. On the Registration Day each family will be required to submit 2 dates to help out on tasks throughout the season. If these are not completed, or your family is absent on the nominated day, it will be your responsibility to sign up for another day.
Registration Issues (once you have attempted each step!)
Any registration queries can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please complete all registration steps first and then email ALL your information required in one email to speed up the process. This year you have the Proficiency Swim and Information Day to provide the WWCC number and Members Declaration Form. Because the declaration and ID must be sighted by a Committee Member, online approvals will be completed AFTER these steps have been finalised.
IMPORTANT: One parent MUST join the club as an “ASSOCIATE” with any Nipper/Junior Registration.
It is a requirement of Merewether SLSC for at least one parent per family to accompany their child during the Nipper sessions. To ensure they are covered by insurance, THE PARENT MUST JOIN THE CLUB as an “Associate”. See below for fee schedule.
Please note that the joining process is required FOR EACH MEMBER of your family.
