Overview

What is Pool Life Saving?

Pool Lifesaving competitions tests a lifesaver's skills in rescue, accident prevention and emergency care; teaching skills that will save lives and last a lifetime. Pool Lifesaving builds confidence, teaches teamwork, and is perfect for those who want to add an extra dimension to their swimming - and it is fun!

The Manikins are considered “Living patients”, so must be rescued to demonstrate the skills required to preserve life - the head must be kept above the water.

The “Bricks” are treated as “non-Living patients” so may be carried above or below the surface of the water.
