Lifesaving Sport

The Royal Life Saving Society UK is the National Governing Body for pool-based Lifesaving Sport - a sport recognised by the International Olympic Committee and the Commonwealth Games Federation. Lifesaving Sport is the only sport whose skills are first learned for humanitarian purposes.

As showcased in our new promotional video, Lifesaving Sport is a competitive and dynamic international sport, with a variety of fun and challenging activities that take place in and out of the water at swimming pools and the beach. It is also an important vehicle to engage young people in lifesaving and support drowning prevention. 

RLSS UK is excited to have been selected to host the biennial 2025 Commonwealth Lifesaving Championships on behalf of RLSS Commonwealth Drowning Prevention.

We have already secured a fantastic venue for the event and look forward to welcoming you to Wales National Pool in Swansea.

Further details will be released soon, but for now, please save the dates!
