Lifesaving Code Of Conduct
Lifesaving Risk Assessment
What is lifesaving?
Lifesaving sport was originally introduced to encourage lifeguards to improve the essential physical and mental skills required when saving lives in an aquatic environment. It covers the act of rescue, resusitation & first aid. The club offers many opportunities such as the chance to demonstrate lifesaving skills at a competitive level.
Being a member of the club does not mean you have to compete! There are many other ways you can benefit such as:
Competitive lifesaving between clubs at universities across Britain began as a small collaboration between rival clubs over 15 years ago and quickly expanded as more clubs became involved.
The formation of BULSCA in 2002 was in response to this growing popularity of lifesaving sport at universities; with the university lifesaving league bring established in the 2002/03 season to provide a connection between the various competitions hosted by the universities over a season.
"Lifesaving sport is possibly the most demanding multi-discipline sport that exists in the world today. Connected so closely with the noble act of lifesaving, speed lifesaving offers enjoyment, challenges and learning to all ages and abilities" - RLSS 2006
