Lifesaving Sport

Lifesaving Sport incorporates the skills we learn to perform rescues and challenges you to be the best you can.  Our speed based section has over 40 members and has a mixture of current competitive swimmers, ex-swimmers as well as newcomers to competitive swimming. 

At the 2016 Lifesaving World Championships we were the highest placed UK Youth club.

Originally developed to improve the physical and mental agility of lifeguards, Lifesaving Sport has grown into an international competitive swimming discipline that tests fitness, rescue and first aid skills. What’s great about this sport is that it’s not just about physical aptitude – it’s also about the ability to prioritise, adapt and show initiative.

Lifesaving is a rapidly growing sport, both in the UK and Worldwide. It has established tiers of competition from local to international level. There are World Championships, Commonwealth Championships, European Championships and it is part of the World Games.
