About Lifesaving Sport

Lifesaving sport is the only sport whose skills are first learned for humanitarian purposes. Through lifesaving sport, the Lifesaving Society seeks to engage and inspire youth in our drowning prevention mission.

Objectives of Lifesaving Sport are:

  • To support the drowning prevention work of the Lifesaving Society and its humanitarian mission.
  • To provide athletes, coaches and officials with opportunities for participation in lifesaving sport at all levels from developmental to high performance.
  • To position the Lifesaving Society internationally as a leader in lifesaving sport.

About the Junior Lifeguard Telegames

The Lifesaving Society’s Junior Lifeguard TeleGames are inter-club level competitions held at aquatic facilities throughout the year. In TeleGames, competitors have the opportunity to experience lifesaving sport events in a fun and encouraging competitive environment, without having to travel.

Through the development of Lifesaving Sport programs and clubs, youth have the opportunity to become active, increase their personal fitness, learn about competing fairly and setting personal goals.
