 Welsh Team 2016














Both teams took part in a hard days competition in Portreath, Cornwall. Not only did they have to battle against the strong opponents from England but also the force of mother nature who provided some testing conditions. All members of the team competed well and were a credit to their county however they both teams narrowly missed out on securing the win. 

About Lifesaving Sport

Lifesaving is not only a skill but a true multidiscipline sport. Throughout the year sporting fixtures include both beach, sea, open water and still water events. During these events,individuals or teams compete in a series of events. Each event aims to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of lifesaving principles and techniques. The run-swim-run is the most common and demonstrates the basic need to be strong swimmer in the sea. Speed races also offer ideal practise for the rescuing of a conscious and unconcious patients in sea conditions. Returning a casualty to shore through the surf is a difficult task and the best non-powered craft available for lifeguards to reach a casualty and return to shore is the malibu rescue board (Mal) used throughout training. The fastest non powered craft known as the Surf Ski which is also raced as a perfect way to practise skills of negotiating surf. Fitness plays a key role in lifeguarding and races and other team relays all strengthen an individuals athletic ability and enables vital seconds to be saved in responding to a situation. Beach events such as sprints all hone lifeguards responses and actions to sounds as well as giving them a cutting edge on explosive starts.
