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 North and West Yorkshire Branch are hosting their Rookie Challenge Festival on Saturday 27 July 2024 at the John Charles Centre for Sport in Leeds 

The competition has been designed as an introduction to competitive lifesaving, to motivate Rookies and be lots of fun!

On the day, registration will open at 1.15pm, Team Managers will meet at 1.30pm and the competition will begin promptly at 2pm.   

Please note: To assist in the smooth running of the event, all participating Clubs are required to provide 1 Timekeeper/Official to be identified at the time of registration.
