Pool Lifesaving for Youth


11-14 years



Girls and Boys

Beginner to Advanced. Events are based on your level of ability


Modified events based on distance and ability

Fun, fast and rewarding, Pool Lifesaving is a chance for youth to participate with their friends and establish new friendships, with a distinct focus on team building


Have fun with your friends in a team environment

Tailor made for participants of all abilities and aspirations, Pool Lifesaving for Youth caters to teenage boys and girls aged from 11-14. An ideal progression from either Swim and Survive or The Swim and Survive Games, Pool Lifesaving provides children with the opportunity to participate in a competition within peers and support mentors

What to expect

As participants get a little older, they will be introduced to some higher distances of events whilst maintaining the relaxed and informal environment. It’s about the joy of racing and competing against other athletes.
These competitions will continue the development of skills and understanding for lifesavers and parents alike through more race starts. The focus is on fun and enjoyment of personal improvement over winning, promoted by the knowledge of results, and social engagement.
We also have a National Championships and Development Squad Pathway for Talented Athletes at this age
