General Membership for 2016/2017
From the 29th of August 2016, we will also be accepting new membership registrations for the coming summer season from both returning and new members who are NOT needing to join their child into the Nipper Program.
Please ensure you have a valid Working With Children Check (WWCC) if you are 18 years and older, that is registered to both Hampton Life Saving Club (HLSC) and Life Saving Victoria (LSV).
Membership CANNOT be accepted without a WWCC that is valid until the end of the season, so please check that your WWCC is not about to expire part way through this coming season.
Hampton Life Saving Club reminds all members that photography of our members on the Public Beach can be a common occurence. Photos taken by authorised members of the club may be used on our Website, Teamapp, Newsletters and or other Club publications. Should you, your family and or your children NOT wish for this to occur, please contact Philip Mawkes (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please ensure you have read the information about WWCC’s, as we cannot accept applications from families unless all adult members in the household have a valid WWCC registered to HLSC and LSV. CLICK HERE for more details on the WCCC requirements and process.
