1. COMPULSARY POOL SWIM TEST
To become a Nipper your child will need to pass the compulsory swim test signed by any qualified swim coach. The test ensures your child is water safe and allows them to participate in sea activities.
TARGET Swim test Distance & time requirements:
U10 – Level 1: swim 300m in under 8 minutes
U12 – Level 2: swim 400m in under 9 minutes
U13/U14 – Level 3: swim 400m in under 8 minute
2. NIPPERS INTAKE 2023/2024
The 2023/2024 season kicks off in September/October. Due to limitations around facilities and the need to always ensure sea safety, we cap the number of Nippers that we can accommodate. We aim to register new Nippers on a “first come, first serve” basis, provided the appropriate age groups have places available and submit a passed swim test. Please note that we do hold back a few places for Nippers who will add value to certain teams and/or age groups at the discretion of the Nipper Officer.
3. ANNUAL SUBS
Valid from one season until the next. Subs are the fees you pay to be a member of the club. Once you have a paying Nipper, the whole family become member, which allow you to use the services of LSLC.
Subs include competition entry for all the local competitions as well as Western Province Awards exams which allow you to get qualified and compete and are taken once every two seasons. The subs exclude SA Champs entry fees.
