Nipper Registration Instructions

Steps for registering your child for Nippers




Please note that the Nipper Summer Program, Starfish Nipper Program and U14 Nippers (SRC) registrations open 1st September.

STEP 1 - Obtain your Working With Children Check (WWCC)

All members aged 18 years and older MUST hold a WWCC. Many people may already hold a WWCC with other organisations. If this is the case you must update your WWCC to add Anglesea SLSC and Life Saving Victoria to your list of organisations. 

If you do not hold a WWCC you must apply for one. 


Please read WWCC/VIT information on how to apply for/renew/update and report your WWCC to us.

Membership cannot be processed without a WWCC. As these can sometimes take some time, to avoid disappointment we urge you not to leave it until you are ready to register for the nipper Program to organise your WWCC.

STEP 2 - Renew/Apply and Pay for Membership

Please ensure you have renewed or applied for a membership for EACH member of your family who wants to be involved. Nippers are aged 6 to 13.


Please read membership information on how to apply for/renew/create a Family Group. Don't forget to pay!

STEP 3 - Pay for Membership

You will be prompted to make your payment once you have submitted your application or renewal.

Memberships will not be processed unless all requirements have been met.

Do not pay your Nipper Levy at this stage. The Nipper Levy should be paid during online Nipper Registration.

2023/24 Fee Schedule

STEP 4 - Receive your Digital Member Card/s

This will be emailed to you to confirm your membership has been fully processed.


Your Digital Member Card will be required for:

  • Nipper/Starfish/SRC Registration - must be uploaded into the online Nipper Registration Form

  • Course/Camp Registration - must be uploaded into the online registration page

STEP 5 - Complete a Preliminary Skills Evaluation for each Nipper

Please note this Preliminary Skills Evaluation must be done every year and is a LSV requirement.

Starfish Nippers must complete a Medical Form.

STEP 5 - Use the password provided in your Membership Conformation email to Complete the Online Nipper Registration.

Nipper Registration CANNOT be completed until ALL membership requirements  and swim proficiency have been met.

Upload your Digital Member Card (which will be emailed to you along with your password) and Preliminary Skills Evaluation Forms (Medical Form if you are a new Starfish Nipper).


  • A Nipper levy of $27.50 is payable per Nipper to assist with covering the increasing costs of purchasing and maintaining Nipper equipment (including appropriate maintenance, storage and repair of Nipper boards), the Nipper pack as well as the administration and running of the program. This levy covers the costs of all summer sessions and enables your child to attend Dolphins training sessions all year round.

  • In addition, this season the Club are passing on the LSV Nipper Levy in full, which is $16.00 per child.

  • All registrations received prior to 1st November 2023, will cost $43.50 per child (up to 3 children, then capped thereafter). IE: $27.50 ASLSC Levy Fee Plus $16 LSV Levy Fee = Totalling $43.50.

  • Any late registrations will be required to pay an additional late fee of $100 per Nipper (again capped at 3 or more children), from 1st November.
