MEMBERSHIP 2019 / 2020

New Members

The Apollo Bay SLSC welcomes new members at any time of the year.  Please follow the instructions below to become a member and pay for your membership.  Once you have completed this process you will automatically receive all email communications and newsletters sent out to our members. 

For Nipper Members - once your membership application has been approved by the Club you then need to complete your Nipper Registration form.  This can be found on this website under the 'Nipper' tab.

Step 1:  Become a member of the Apollo Bay SLSC

  1. Each individual adult and child needs to complete the membership process. 
  2. Complete an Application for Membership - click here and select 'NO' if you have never been a member of a club before.  You will be taken to the page "Surf Life Saving JOIN".
  3. Complete the online application to join a Surf Life Saving Club
  4. Check the declaration boxes and 'SUBMIT' the form.

Your application will be forwarded to the Membership Officer and you will receive an email once your membership 
        application has been approved. 

The system requires overnight processing once membership has been approved before you can create a Portal Account.

Step 2 - Create a Members Portal account 

  1. You need to create a Members Portal Account for each person joining.  Apollo Bay SLSC requires new members to sign up online using the SLSA Members Portal system.  Once this is done, you can manage your own and your families membership in the future.
  2. To get started, click here to create a Members Portal Account.  Make sure you are on 'Create Account' and not 'Login'.
  3. Enter the information as requested.  This matches up to the data input when you joined the club, so make sure you enter the exact information.
  4. Enter either mobile number or email address to receive an Activation Code.
  5. Enter the Activation Code.  This will then direct you to your members portal page.
  6. Repeat this for each member of your family joining.
  7. Once you have accessed the Portal click on the fourth tab 'LIFESAVING ONLINE' to see your membership information.  Most of the membership functions required are found under this tab.
  8. If you are joining as a family, once you all have a Portal account, you can create a family group under "My Family" which will make renewing in the future much simpler.

Please retain your Usernames and Passwords as you will require them in the future to renew your membership.

Step 3 - Pay for your Membership / Course Fee

  1. Login to your Portal Account.
  2. Click 'LIFESAVING ONLINE' tab.
  3. Click 'ONLINE PAYMENTS'.  You should see the screen above.
  4. Click 'MAKE A PAYMENT'.
  5. Enter relevant details and click 'SUBMIT'.  This will take you to a Westpac secure site for your credit card details.
  6. You will receive an electronic receipt and the club will receive notification of payment of your membership.



Renewing Members

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

  2. Enter your username and password - this will take you to your Members Portal Page.

Family Groups

If multiple members of one family are club members, you can easily manage all your membership under one Family Group.  This allows for the grouping of people and bulk processing by a responsible adult (parent).

  2. The Pimary Member (a parent or guardian) should login to their Portal Account.  
  3. Click the 'LIFESAVING ONLINE' tab.
  4. Click on 'MY FAMILY' tab.
  5. Click on 'CREATE FAMILY GROUP' tab.
