We are excited to announce that the RLSS Commonwealth has chosen RLSS UK, to host the 2019 Festival of Lifesaving!

The announcement has been met with great delight by all those involved, particularly those who represented the home nations earlier this, year in Durban, South Africa.

“We are very proud to be chosen as hosts for the Commonwealth Festival of Lifesaving, as it makes a welcome return to the UK. It is a massive coup for us. We’ll hit the ground running in 2018 to ensure that we, as a governing body, delivery a festival to remember!”

Di Steer RLSS UK CEO

The UK has previously hosted the Commonwealth Championships several times throughout the 90s and early 00s, and RLSS UK are thrilled to have the new-look event, heading back here in 2019.

The festival aims to encourage participation in lifesaving sport and further development of lifesaving practices, as well as bringing the lifesaving family together. In addition to the Commonwealth Lifesaving Championships, the 2019 event will also include an individual skill element and a non-competitive sports section.

More event details will follow in the new year.
