The Challenge events will form the combined lifesaving skills element of the Festival, during which individuals will test their skills on an international stage. The Challenge will test the judgement, skill, knowledge and ability of lifesavers in a five-event contest.

The Commonwealth Lifesaving Challenge is open to any individual lifesaver in good standing with a nation recognised by the Commonwealth Games Federation. They may also be members of a national or development team at the same Commonwealth festival.

The Challenge will be conducted for individuals in both male and female categories in the Elite, Development and Novice categories.  Age groups – Open, 30 to 39, 40 to 49 and 50 plus.
