The first face-to-face sign-on opportunity for the 2020/21 season will be Saturday 29th August 2020. New clothing can be purchased on this day.

If you miss the sign-on day, joining via the online membership process is still the fastest way to become a registered member. You can join online and come to the the first nipper activity day to purchase swimmers and ask questions.

If you miss this day it doesn't matter, we can still take online registration at any time during the season, or come down and have a look and a trial.

Register online -

There must be an accompanying payment for the registration to be processed.

All membership processing is completed online through the national database.  We understand that some people want to come and see us before they decide to sign-up and that's no problem.  The online enrollment process can be completed at the sign-on day, or at another time. The membership will not be fully finalised until the member details are recorded in the national database and payment is received and processed.

Much like most surf clubs, we require at least one parent to join the club as a General Member, and make themselves available to assist with one of the volunteer groups (Age Manager Assistant, Junior Official, Water Safety or a member of the Salt Support Crew) to contribute to the running of nippers and carnivals. We provide training and courses for all these groups, and no one is forced in to it.

The nipper days will commence on Saturday October 10th 2020 at 2:30pm.  We will break for xmas on December 12th and then be back on the beach for January 9th 2021
