Registration Introduction

INTRODUCTION Welcome to the 2019/2020 Season.

Online registrations are open annually from 1 September.

Nippers for the 2019/20 season commenced on 20 October. Registrations will remain open until Christmas. For participation on Sunday Nippers during this period, registrations must be submitted by the Thursday night prior to the Sunday. Registrations received after this cut-off may not be processed in time. The Registrars will send an email confirming that your registration has been processed and confirming your child's start date. Please do not arrive on Sunday expecting your child to participate, as their name will not be on an Age Manager list (as they are not covered by insurance and neither is the Club).

After reading all the information about registrations, further Nipper enquiries can be sent to the Juniors Registrar:

GENERAL INFORMATION All aspects of registration is completed online, including payment and sending proof of ID.

Children must attain the age of 5 years by 30 September before they can join as a Nipper member. However, if a child commences after they just turn 5 years, SLSA requires that they must remain in the U6s age group for the following season.

It is a requirement of Shellharbour SLSC for at least one parent per family to join and accompany their child during Nipper sessions. If you are not already an Active Member then you will be required to join as a General Member ($55), ensuring you are covered by insurance. We offer attractive rates for family membership and encourage families to become part of our great Club.

Members from U/8-U/14 age groups will need to provide a completed swim form on their first day of Nippers. Your child is unable to participate in any water activities without providing a swim form.
