Membership / Renewal and Member Protection Declaration forms can be downloaded via the links below:
APPLICATION FOR MEMBERSHIP / RENEWAL
(required annually by all members)
Click on the link below to download a membership form (only required if not joining/renewing online) :
NB: All new members – the preferred method of applying for membership is via join.sls.com.au (as per the link on the ‘Membership’ page). For those who prefer the paper form, please ensure you use block letters and write clearly (so that the details/spelling will be entered correctly in the Membership Register).
NB: All existing members are asked to use pre-completed forms that are emailed from Surfguard each August. Members can check their details, then simply print and sign before returning to the Club when making payment. Again, it greatly assists the Club’s volunteer administrators if members renew and pay online.
MEMBER PROTECTION DECLARATION
(required once only)
Required by all over 18s and those under 18 who work with children – i.e. Age Managers, Coaches, Water Safety etc. NB: This includes the U14s/Cadets (who must have their form counter-signed by their parent or guardian).
Click on the following link to download the form:
New Members must present the ‘Application for Membership’ form and Member Protection Declaration (where relevant) along with proof of I.D. and payment of fee to a committee member (who will record the details and pass these on to the Registrar).
Existing Members need only complete the ‘Application for Membership/Renewal’ form and pay their fee (as their M.P.D. and I.D. have already been verified).
Working with Children
Adult members who work closely with children for 5 days or more per year and don’t have an exemption, will be required to provide a “Working with Children Check” number and validity dates. The Club will verify the member’s status with the Office of the Children’s Guardian and attach the Clearance to the member’s record in Surfguard. NB: The WWCC is free for volunteers, must be renewed after 5 years and is portable. i.e. Can be used for any organisation for which an adult is engaged in child related work as a volunteer.
To apply, go to https://www.kidsguardian.nsw.
