Membership Renewal for 2016/2017

Please note that you are not permitted to patrol, requalify for the year or participate in Nippers at Wye River SLSC until your membership has been renewed.


Step 1: Create a Members Portal Account

If you renewed your membership last year you should already have a Members Portal and you can skip ahead to step two.


Wye River SLSC will again be using the new Members Portal set up by SLSA for the processing of all membership renewals. This system is secure and your information is private. Please read all instructions carefully before beginning the online renewal process. A copy of the SLSA Portal Account Guide which includes step by step instructions on getting started can be accessed here: Members Portal Account Guide


Every member should have received an email from on or about 9 July 2015 containing information about the Members Portal and, importantly, your details as currently recorded. If you can locate this email the renewal process will be straightforward. 


To get started, direct your internet browser to the following website:

Once you have successfully created an account you will then need to renew your membership and pay your membership fee/s. NB: Family members should also create a family group in their Members Portal. See below for further information.


Step 2: Renew your membership

Once you have created a Members Portal account the Memberships page should automatically open. If not, click on the “Lifesaving Online” tab (blue tab on far right) in the Members Portal. Then click on “Memberships” (third white tab in the second line).


Wye River should come up as your Surf Club with your basic membership information. Click “Renew” in the top right of the Wye River box. Please then check your membership details and update as required. Then click the two acknowledgement check boxes at the bottom of the page and click “Submit”.


Family members please note that if you have created a Family Group you should easily be able renew each family member using the My Family tab (second white tab).


Step 3: Online Payment

You will then be prompted to make a payment using the Payment Gateway with a credit card (same as last season). Click the link. You will need to first choose an appropriate amount to pay depending on your club membership.


    Family - $160

    (Includes parents and dependent children of any age (i.e. full time students)


    Family with concession/health care card- $100


    Nipper - $30

    (NB: Payable in addition to family membership)


    Senior active (18 yrs and over) - $80

    (Not payable if covered under family membership)


    Cadet active (15 – 18 yrs) - $70

    (Not payable if covered under family membership)


    Associate - $70

    (Non-active individual membership)


    Senior (60 yrs and over) - $40


**Nipper members must also be family members and at least one parent must be a family member of the club.**


Complete the form as follows (it should be automatically completed): Club is “Wye River”, First column is “Membership Fee”, Second column- list names of all the family members names who will be included in this membership on one line only and description of fee/s that you are paying. (Ensure you only use one line as the database will look for another payment if you use another line). Third column is the amount you are paying.

“Submit” will take you to a Westpac secure site for your credit card details. You will receive an electronic receipt and I will receive notification of your payment and membership renewal.


Alternatively, you can use Electronic Transfer into our bank account: details, BSB: 033 637 Account number 104 748 Ref. Your full name.


Optional step 4: Family Groups (If you did not do this last year)

SLSA has introduced a new feature which we hope will make the membership renewal process simpler for families. Family groups allow for the grouping of people to allow for bulk processing by a responsible adult (usually a parent).


One parent (the Primary Member) should create a Members Portal account and then click on the “Lifesaving Online” tab (fourth tab at the top) and then click on “My Family” (second tab on the next line). Then complete all compulsory fields including the Family Group name and the names of all family members. NB: Other family members do not need to create a Member Portal, the Primary Member can renew their memberships once the Family Group has been created.

Active members must be financial before requalifying and a copy of your Working With Children Card needs to be on file.
