If the member does not have a Surf Life Saving (SLS) account set up, before they can proceed they will need to set one up  for each member joining Maroubra SLSC.

Step 3. Make a Payment 

Preferred Payment

If you wish to pay the  Registration Fee of $TBC, then you can pay with either a Credit Card OR ACTIVE Kids Voucher   then please follow the instruction details on the screen.

Alternative Payment

For those unable to pay by Credit Card or ACTIVE Kids Voucher, then please email  Nipper Registrations 

Note: All membership applications won’t be processed until you’ve paid the appropriate annual membership fee.

Make sure you choose the correct membership type

For each under-18 member you’ll now be presented with a page where you can redeem an Active Kids voucher.

  • Once an Active Kids Voucher has been redeemed, Maroubra Nippers' policy does not  allow for a refund and/or transfer of the Active Kids Voucher if the registration is later cancelled and/or transferred to another surf life saving club.

If you wish to use one per under-18, fill out the requested details for each: Voucher code, PIN (child’s date of birth in the format DDMM [day & month]), and the full, pre-discount Maroubra Nippers membership fee for each.

When entering the Nippers Members details, please ensure their name and details match exactly as it appears on their Medicare card and Active Kids Voucher.

  • If there is a discrepancy then we may be unable to accept the Active Kids Voucher.

Please email Nipper Registrations with a screenshot of ACTIV Kids Voucher

Note: If you don’t redeem your Active Kids vouchers at this point and instead leave this page it will not be shown again. You have only one opportunity to enter the required voucher information. Currently the only known means of returning to this page is to cancel your Maroubra Nippers pending membership request and starting the whole process

Otherwise just leave all fields blank. Click the Next button to proceed again.

Please ensure that Maroubra (NSW) is the Club/Organisation selected in the Payments Page:
