U6 and U7 Membership

U6 and U7 members may participate in activities on an educational basis only. Bulli SLSC has elected to run activities for these age groups - however, children in these age groups may not compete in any point score or championship events, the emphasis for these age groups is education, participation and having FUN.

A child may join Bulli SLSC as soon as he/she turns 5 years of age. It is SLSA policy that no Club is to accept membership of a child until they have reached the age of 5 years to comply with insurance requirements. A child who reaches 5 years of age after 30th September 2017 may join Nippers at that time; however, this child will be required to stay in the U6 Nippers age group the following season. 

It is recommended that if your child turns 5 years of age after the 31st December that they join the following season, following the Christmas break there are only 3-4 Nippers days left for the season
