Queensland Pool Rescue Championships

Free Events, Sports

Surf Life Saving Queensland pool rescue competition has grown from strength to strength in recent years. Competitors test their rescue skills with events such as manikin tows, obstacle swims and tube swims carrying patients. The event has expanded to include under-11, under-12 and under-13 athletes, and it is hoped the event will encourage youngsters into the sport and maintain their involvement in lifesaving, whether in the pool or in the surf. Pool rescue competition has been beneficial for regional clubs in particular, giving them the potential to attract pool swimmers and other members who might otherwise not have competed in surf sports because they were uncomfortable in the ocean. Further, it is now deemed virtually essential for athletes to have pool rescue skills among their credentials for consideration to be selected for Australian teams, enhancing the importance of this competition in rounding out a competitor’s skill set. The State Pool Rescue Championships attracts more than 450 competitors and is an important precursor to the Australian Pool Rescue Championships.
