A WORD FROM THE REGISTRARS
Nipper registrations CLOSED on 30 September 2022.
Nipper registrations received from 1st October onwards will be placed on hold, subject to committee approval and late fees do apply.

Choose from the options below. Remember, all aspects of registration, including ID (new members only) and payment, must be received at the one time or your application will be rejected.

For Nippers, a Mandatory pool proficiency is required prior to season start – no more pre-booked sessions available.
Please download the swim form from the website and have your child's swim coach (or other accredited coach) sign off and return it to us by email as noted on the swim form.

We appreciate your support in completing all membership requirements at one time.





NOTICES
There are a number of situations that are repeatedly causing registration problems this season.
If these are applicable to you, please take the time to read them first. It will save you time and frustration, and help the Registrars immensely !!
It is compulsory to have one Parent register with their child(ren).

In 'New Members' Step 1 below, upload Identification documents for yourself and your child(ren)

When you then progress to the SLS join application form, please ensure you select My Family, and NOT 'An Individual'. A lot of people are making that mistake !

The rest of the process should be straightforward. ... Please complete the registration AND pay your fees.

First
-
ID
- Upload your child's ID document. See 'New Members' Step 1 on this page below. Complete the Upload of the ID and stop there.
Second
-
RENEW
- Go to the Members Portal and renew your existing Family Group.
Third
-
JOIN
- Only after renewing, edit your Family Group inside the Members Portal and then look for the button Join New Person & Add. Add your child.

Why can't I join first ?
Registrars cannot accept a Membership application for a child without a registered parent. So, get yourself registered first, then Add your child.
The Members Portal does not allow you to do both a renewal and a join at the same time.

But I want to use the Family Group membership option to pay for all the family ?
That's fine, use the Family Group membership option during your family renewal.
When you add the new Child, complete the application form but DO NOT proceed to payment.
The Registrars will pick this up, and will know.

To Confirm ...
- You are already 'in the system' from having previously registered as a Beach Pup parent.
- But you have no 'Family Group' setup yet because no-one else in your family are 'in the system' yet.
Correct ? Read on ...

First
-
RENEW
- Go to the Members Portal and renew yourself.
Second
-
ID + JOIN
- Follow the 'New Member' process to join your child.
Third
-
FAMILY GROUP
- Go back into the Members Portal as yourself. Under Memberships menu, Select Family, then Create Family Group, Add your child, and create the Family Group

Why can't I join my child first ?
Registrars cannot accept a Membership application for a child without a registered parent. So, get yourself registered first, then Add your child.
The Members Portal does not allow you to do both a renewal and a join at the same time.
The Members Portal does not allow you to create a Family Group without someone else to put in that group, and they have to be joined/registered themselves.

I have multiple children/family members to add ?
Once you have created the Family Group as above, you can then 'Edit' your Family and there is a button in there to Join New Person & Add
You will still need to provide ID for any/all new members though - 'New Member' process Step 1 only.

Why is it so hard ?
Great question !! We ask ourselves that too.

SLSNSW have advised that Active Kids Vouchers (AKV) are only eligible to be used against the individual child's membership fees.
The system does not support the claiming of AKV against the all-inclusive Family Group Membership price.
The Family Group renewal option in the system now states '- cannot be used with AKV'

Can I use AKV at all ?
Yes you can. Instead of the selecting the Family Group renewal option, select each individual's membership renewal category instead.
The children will then display prompts that allow you to use AKV for them only.

But I can't claim the full $100 ?
That's right. You can only claim the amount of the child's fees.
Any remaining 'credit' cannot be used to offset anyone else's fees.
Any remaining 'credit' is forfeited back to the government.
If your children have other summer activities/pursuits where you can claim the full $100 of AKV, then that is completely your decision to use them there instead.
Please understand that this is a directive of SLSNSW and the Active Kids program's Terms and Conditions, it has nothing to do with our club.
