You must complete all six steps to participate in the Nippers program. If you are new to Hampton Life Saving Club or transfering from another club, please go to the new member page.

Step 1. Make sure your Working with Children Check is up to date.
All members 18+, including all Nipper parents, must hold a valid WWCC card, even if you are a member of traditionally exempt group such as police officers and teachers (see LSV policy on exempt groups here, section 6.2.2).

Visit the Victoria WWCC site to renew an expiring card.


Make sure HLSC and LSV are listed in your MyCheck account:

Step 2. Complete the Nipper registration form.

Fill out the Nipper Registration Form for each participant (age 13 or younger as of 30th September). If you're joining as an individual or a family with no nippers to sign up, go to Step 3.


Step 3. Renew with Surf Life Saving Australia.
Sign into your Surf Life Saving Australia account here and select "My Family" to renew everyone in your family group. Make sure contact information is up to date.
