The Royal Life Saving Society UK are delighted to announce squad of athletes who have been selected to form part of the new, RLSS UK Performance Programme.

The Performance Programme is designed to identify talent at individual event level with the further aim of then nurturing and developing lifesaving sport athletes, with a view to maximising their potential.

There will be more regular training sessions, an updated coaching team and an increased appetite to work alongside local lifesaving clubs, to deliver the best training possible for this squad of over 60 athletes.

You can read a bit more about the RLSS UK Performance Programme in the latest (spring) edition of Lifesavers by clicking here.
