COVID Vaccination Update

Anyone age 12 years and 2 months or older must be fully vaccinated to attend the club or be involved with any HLSC programs or activities (or provide a valid exemption). Upload your family's certificates in step one below.

How to Renew

You must complete all seven 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. Upload vaccination certificates.
Visit the LSV Vaccination Status page to provide vaccination or exemption details for all family members over age 12 years and 2 months. You can return and update as you complete doses and receive your certificates. Each family member should be entered separately. If you have any questions, please refer to the LSV Vaccination FAQ.

Step 2. Make sure your Working with Children Check is valid through the end of the season.
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:

  • Hampton Life Saving Club, PO Box 1124, Hampton North, 3188, 9598 0600

  • Life Saving Victoria, 200 The Boulevard, Port Melbourne, 3207, 03 9676 6900

If your card is still valid, go to Step 2. Please email copies of any new cards to

Read the Life Saving Victoria policy on safeguarding children and youth.

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.


If you need help, refer to this how-to guide. Or email and we'll walk you through it!

Step 4. Pay membership fees for your family and each nipper.
Go to the SLSA payment page.

PAYMENT DETAILS: Where it asks for "Payment Details," please add a description that clearly tells our volunteers what your payment is for, such as "Smith Family, 2 nippers, Eva and Max."

Once your payment has been made, you will receive a confirmation email, HLSC will be notified and we will reach out to you if we have any questions.

Step 5. Email proof of age for any new nippers.

Don't worry about returning nippers. Send proof of age of any new participants to

Step 6. 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 7. Update Team App
Critical communications (such as last-minute weather-related cancellations) and schedules are sent via Team App, and you'll be able to order and pay for your required high-vis rashies here. Download the app or create an account online (or do both!) Add yourself to all relevant access groups, such as your children's Nipper groups, the Nipper parent group, patrols, etc. Make sure notifications are turned on.
