Lifeguard Competitions 101

Lifeguard competitions are a great way to practice your skills with your friends in challenging situations. When else will you get the chance to practice treating victims in a simulated bus crash or marathon disaster?

Do my teammates and I have to be really good lifeguards? “Lifeguard championship” may sound daunting, but the event itself is not! Competitors range from brand-new National Lifeguards who want to enhance their training to experienced veterans who have competed nationally. You’ll find everyone involved to be extremely warm and inviting! If you’re not sure, recruit some friends and volunteer to get your feet wet.

Not sure what to expect? Our lifeguard competition crash course will answer some of your frequently asked questions. We can also connect you to experienced coaches who can offer training tips – contact us.

Did you know that Lifesaving Society Canada has a national team that travels to lifesaving sport competitions around the world?
