It is a Surf Life Saving Australia requirement that all children wear hi-vis rashies for all surfclub activities, including Sunday nippers, training sessions, as well as at carnivals.  All members will receive a hi-vis rashie on presentation of registration receipt. 

The only other purchase you will have to make is a surf club cap, which must be worn at all times during surfclub activities so that the children can be easily identified both in the water and on the beach. These are available at the apparel shop, costing $15 each. Click on the link below to view other Apparel items.

For children 8 years and over, they may also register for carnivals (the first carnival of the season is the Sydney Water Series Round 1 on Saturday 7 November. Carnival information, including dates and fees, is provided in the link below:
