Welcome to the NEW Lifesaving Sports Area, this area has been set up to help you easily navigate everything lifesaving sport related!
The Royal Life Saving Society UK is a National Governing Body for Lifesaving Sport - a sport recognised by the International Olympic Committee and the Commonwealth Games Federation.
Our aim is to provide an inclusive range of opportunities to increase participation in lifesaving activities.
We recognise the importance of equipping as many people as possible with valuable lifesaving skills to help save as many lives as possible and to help reduce the drowning toll in the UK.
The National Speed Championships, the largest competition of its kind in the UK, sees lifesaving athletes aged 12 and upwards from across the UK and Ireland competing for national titles in what is the only sport that has a humanitarian foundation.
#Speeds2022 will take place at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre, Sheffield on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 March 2022.
Please note a change to one of the age groups this year is now 15-18 to align with ILS youth category. The age of a competitor is calculated based on their age on 31st December 2022.
