Welcome to this rapidly expanding & exciting surf lifesaving sport discipline.

Pool Rescue sees competitors’ aquatic skills tested with events including manikin tows, obstacle swims and tube swims carrying ‘patients’.

At the club level it’s fun & uses your swimming skills in a very different way. 

Pool tournaments also encourage athletes who may feel uncomfortable in the ocean to get involved in the lifesaving movement.
