2017/2018 Season Members,
Welcome to the 2017/18 season of the Dalyellup Surf Life Saving Club.
I’d like to extend a very warm welcome to everyone for another great year at Daleyllup.
Dalyellup SLSC offers something for everyone, regardless of your gender, age, cultural background or physical ability. This fact lies at the core of Dalyellup to be an inclusive organisation where everyone feels welcome and valued. This starts from when a potential new member comes into contact with the Club for the first time, through to members actively participating in Club activities. Surf life saving is an amazing activity for developing a child’s confidence, knowledge and skills in the beach environment. Not only will your child have fun and meet new friends they will become part of an iconic organisation that has served the Australian community for over 100 years.
Our objective at Dalyellup SLSC is to educate our children to be competent and safe in the beach/surf environment. Surf knowledge and techniques are gradually introduced to the children; ultimately at the age of 13 they can attain their Surf Rescue Certificate, which is just one step below the Bronze Medallion. Training also incorporates developing 1st Aid skills as well as the opportunity to be an active volunteer by undertaking Patrols to help keep our beach safe. Whilst all children are encouraged to improve their surf skills, no child is
forced or pressured to do something they are not comfortable with. Our first aim is for the children to have FUN at Nippers and enjoy coming to the Club each week.
Everyone is welcome at Dalyellup SLSC, however the Club is a volunteer based organisation which needs your help. There are many ways you can get involved. Dalyellup SLSC is a community focussed Club which needs active members. On Sundays please assist your Age Group Manager in any way that you feel comfortable. You will be rostered for BBQ duties. These are vital to our activities so please make yourself available when advised. A parent must be present on the beach throughout Nippers.
We have tried to include the everyday things you need to know about Dalyellup Nippers & Seniors in this booklet. If you require any further information please feel free to ask any Age Group Manager, Committee member or simply ask on our face book page or email through the website. If you are new to the Club I urge you to get involved. Come along to the Club on Friday nights pizza and BBQ nights, use the, make yourself known and get involved.
I hope you enjoy your season at Dalyellup SLSC.
From the Club President.
