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 Area Account
If you renewed your membership last year or in the last couple of years you should already have a Members Account and you can click here, login and skip ahead to step two. You may be prompted to reset your password.
Wye River SLSC will again be using the online platform set up by SLSA for the processing of all membership renewals. This system is known as the Members Area. This system is secure and your information is private. Please read all instructions carefully before beginning the online renewal process.
To get started, direct your internet browser to the following website: https://sls.com.au/join/
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 Account. See below for further information.
Step 2: Renew your membership
Once you have logged in here, or created a Members Area account click on the red Renew button on the top right of the screen. Or you can select "Renewals, payments and transfers" from the "Memberships” menu (second from the left).
Wye River should come up as your Surf Club with your basic membership information. Carefully check your membership details and update as required. Then click the two acknowledgement check boxes (or three if you are a parent renewing a child) 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 "Family" tab (under the Memberships menu). Click "renew" next to the name of each family member. If you have not created a Family Group you will need to login to the Members Area for each family member and submit a renewal request. (See Step 4 for info on how to create a Family Group.)
Step 3: Online Payment (not required for active members in 2020/2021)
You will then be prompted to make a payment using the Payment Gateway with a credit card. Your payment cannot be processed until payment is received and will remain "Pending" until this step has been completed. Click the link. NB: the Payment Gateway has been redesigned so may not look familiar to you. You will need to first choose an appropriate amount to pay depending on your club membership.
Family - $80
(Includes parents and dependent children of any age (i.e. full time students)
Family with concession/health care card- $50
Associate - $35
(Non-active individual membership)
Senior (60 yrs and over) - $20
**Nipper members must 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”, transaction type is “Membership Fee”, payment details: 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. Then enter the amount you are paying.
Clicking "next" will take you to a Westpac secure site for your credit card details. You will receive an electronic receipt and our registrar 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 have not previously set this up)
Setting up a Family Group 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 Area account and then click on the “Family” tab (under the Memberships menu) and click "Create Family Group". 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 Members Area account, 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.
Please email our registrar, Miranda Bordignon at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any problems with the membership renewal process.
