Life Saving

Lifesaving is an utterly purposeful sport as it aims to encourage rescuers – pool and ocean lifeguards – to maintain, develop and improve the physical and mental skills needed to save lives in the aquatic environment. A variety of different events test the technique, fitness and motivation of the athletes in situations not unlike those they encounter in their daily rescue work. Stillwater events are generally held in a pool. They require technical skills as well as speed. Ocean events comprise races that are often unpredictable as currents and waves play a major role. Experience, tactics and endurance is called for in the athletes.
