Lifesaving Sport is the world's most demanding, multi-disciplinary sport in the world; combining athletic ability with lifesaving skills and rescue equipment. Lifesaving Sport is unique because it is the only sport in which skills are learned for humanitarian purposes and then applied to competition.
As the Canadian sport governing body for lifesaving in Canada, the Society promotes healthy, active living through its Lifesaving Sport program across Canadian communities. Competition, staff training, and camaraderie are but a few of the opportunities to attract new participants to lifesaving programs, to showcase Canada's lifeguards, and to promote public awareness of our drowning and water-related injury prevention aims.
The Lifesaving Society is not just developing great lifesavers, but great Canadians.
