General Member’s Registration Instructions
We are forever conscious of the multitude of steps required for registration of our various parent bodies. This year we are looking to simplify this process by asking members to simply register on our own website (here) and we will fulfill the rest of the obligations “behind the scenes”. That is we will update your registration with Surf Life Saving Australia and Life Saving Victoria and we will generate an invoice to be forwarded to you.
This represents a substantial amount of work by our admin team but believe the reduced pain to our volunteer members is worth it! Letting you do the things you most love about the club! This is also a new process for us so forgive any delays in getting the invoices etc back to you.
The 2020 Season will be like none we’ve ever experienced so keep your eyes open for announcements as we negotiate the season, from Warrnambool Surf Life Saving Club, welcome aboard!
Here’s that Form you need to kick this off!
1. Obtain your Working With Children Check
If you do not hold a WWCC you must apply for one.
Details on this simple process are explained here: Warrnambool SLSC WWCC
2. Complete Skills Maintenance Requirements
Logging into your account on Member Training from anywhere will allow you to book into one of our Skills Maintenance sessions. It will also show you the dates of neighboring sessions. Book yourself in and complete the theory components online before attending!
Remember: Until Late October, the log in details are different to your SLSA Member’s Portal account, as this is a LSV only website especially for training and Skills Maintenance. From the end of October 2019 you will have just one set of login details for everything surf lifesaving and that will be set by your SLSA Membership Portal account!!
3. SLSA Registration
This year we will do this step for you, of course if you’re comfortable doing it, go right ahead, only after you have completed the form on this website… But please wait for the club to send you an invoice before paying.
<<Previous Year’s Instructions>>
You know the drill by now…you are required to register separately with Surf Life Saving Australia and renew that registration each year. This can be done individually or by creating a family on the SLSA Member’s Portal. Details are provided via the following link but also the SLSA website has good information on how to proceed.
You will see a “Make a Payment” link during this process, We ask that you please don’t use this unless you have specifically been instructed to by the club. Direct Credit or credit card payment (either via this SLSA website or via PayPal) is accepted from our website. The link is further down this page!

5. Pay for Club Membership and Nipper Program

Individual Membership is $65 for patrolling members and $150 for Associate membership.
Nipper Fees are $55 for the beach program (first Nipper is covered free with a compulsory family membership) and the Nipper competition squad fees are $220 which includes entry to all carnivals (though attendance isn’t compulsory)
