Pool rescue competition is a growing sports discipline for Surf Life Saving WA and its clubs.
Pool Rescue sees competitors’ aquatic skills tested with events including manikin tows, obstacle swims and tube swims carrying ‘patients’.
It is very important for surf athletes to have pool rescue skills - as well as surf skills. Sorrento SLSC Pool Rescue team is growing every year and is becoming a big part of the club.
Pool tournaments also encourage athletes who may feel uncomfortable in the ocean to get involved in the lifesaving movement.
In 2017 SLSWA runs a three-round SunSmart Pool Rescue Series to ensure that all competitors have adequate opportunity to prepare for the SunSmart Pool Rescue State Championships in July.
