Lifesaving Sport

Lifesaving Sport is a competitive sport that gives you the opportunity to compete with fellow lifesavers and grow your essential lifesaving skills.

Originally developed to improve the physical and mental agility of lifeguards, Lifesaving Sport has grown into an international competitive swimming discipline that tests fitness, rescue and first aid skills. What’s great about this sport is that it’s not just about physical aptitude – it’s also about the ability to prioritise, adapt and show initiative.

Lifesaving Sport Competitions

Lifesaving Sport qualifying competitions are held throughout the year, culminating in a series of national competitions to potentially take you all the way through to the elite Lifesaving Sport World Championships.
