Lifesaving clubs

Sport lifesaving is the competitive element of the sport that sees lifesavers compete in skills, speed and teamwork. Competitions take place at local, regional, national and international levels and lifesavers of all ages can get involved.
Competitions are all about enjoying the experience of competing, putting the skills you learn into practice and making new friends. They provide the perfect opportunity for lifesavers to practice the skills as a team and to see how they respond under pressure. Each competition consists of two elements: incidents and speeds.

How do I get involved?
