How to Join
To be eligible to join North Wollongong Junior Surf Life Saving Club (Sandpipers), children must be five (5) years of age as at the 30th September each year. Proof of age must be supplied at the time of registration. A registration form must be completed and witnessed by a parent/guardian. Under 6's and Under 7's do not “surf” as such but do “get wet” in wading and similar events, including those on the beach. These age groups are not eligible to compete in junior surf carnivals.
Parental assistance is vital and much appreciated. Courses to assist parents are run by the senior club, North Wollongong Surf Life Saving Club. They are encouraged to be “age managers”, complete their Life Saving Certificate and Bronze Medallion. Please contact a member of the committee if you have any questions or would like to know more about developing the necessary skills and gaining certification.
The Sandpipers cannot survive without volunteers, be they parents, guardians or friends. Parents/Guardians are invited to consider helping out and there are many ways they can assist such as becoming an age manager, beach activity helper, or general helper with water safety and supervision. See Volunteering for more information.
For insurance purposes at least one parent/guardian must be a member of the club, and agree to the safeguards set out under the Child Protection Act. Please understand that the juniors club is not a baby-sitting service, and children may not be left at the beach unattended.
