Renewals and Payments

Members are invited to reapply to renew their membership for the coming season subject to the approval of the Management Committee. Mona Vale SLSC is moving the membership process online. As a result all members of Mona Vale SLSC are required to create a Member’s Area Account with SLSA and submit an online application to renew their membership and make a payment by 1st November each year. As part of their SLSA obligations all members must pay their fee and complete an annual membership form. Life Members form only. Members will not be registered for the current season unless the online application form, including clicking the declarations and dating the update has been completed and membership fees paid.


Likewise all new memberships will be done online through the Members Area.


After the 1st November members who have not renewed will be 'Archived' and their registration lapsed.


If a member wants to renew an entire family, the Primary member (e.g. mother or father) can create a Members Area Account, create a Family Group and renew all members of the family in one transaction. This eliminates the need for every member of the family to have their own Members Area account.
