Parental / Guardian Involvement

The Glenelg SLSC encourage parents/guardians to be involved in every aspect of their child’s development. Assisting with Nippers can be as easy as helping out on the Fundraising BBQ or maybe you would like to look after some coaching in your child’s age group. We will provide training materials and support you along the way.

Parents who assist around the club should have a current National Police Clearance valid for 3 years.

Please visit the SAPOL website and download the National Police Clearance form, bring it into the club and we will complete the form as a VOAN volunteer - it just takes 1 minute. See Anthony Merchant or Georgina Cole.

Then take it to the Police Station with your proof of I.D. Once you National Police Clearance form has been issued lodge it with the club as Surf Life Saving SA must sight an original copy once this is approved.

The Nippers of TODAY are the Lifesavers of TOMORROW.
