Working With Children Check

With approximately 400 children involved in our Nippers program, HLSC aligns with Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) and Life Saving Victoria (LSV) policies. We require all members age 18 and over—regardless of their level of involvement—to hold a current Working With Children Check (WWCC). This includes members, such as police officers and teachers, who may have other checks already completed.

Your WWCC must be registered to HLSC and LSV. This ensures that the Department of Justice can advise LSV and HLSC if there are any issues. If you already have a WWCC card, add these two groups and the addresses below to your MyCheck account:

Hampton Life Saving Club, PO Box 1124, Hampton North, 3188

Life Saving Victoria, 200 The Boulevard, Port Melbourne, 3207

Click here to apply for a new WWCC. You will need to print and take your completed application to the post office to complete the process. Your WWCC be lodged and processed before any participation in HLSC or the Nippers Program.
