The University of Plymouth Surf Lifesaving Club 2018/2019
We are one of the UK's FEW University SURF Lifesaving Clubs, competing accross the country, taking silver medal overall at 2012 Championships in Bath and winning the RNLI Simulated Incident in the 2015 Championships. Many of our club qualified for the World Lifesaving Championships during the RLSS National Speeds Competition.
Throughout the year we offer pool lifeguarding courses and training (NPLQ) & beach lifeguarding courses (SLSGB/RLSS)! So far we have a 100% pass rate in all of these courses. And have trained over 130 lifesavers.
We offer beach sessions, where you can practice and get a taste of the skills it takes to become a beach lifeguard, or maybe you just wanna head to the beach for a chilled day.
Our very active club also consists of at least once a fortnight socials (although we usually go out way more!) as well as non aclohol based socials such as bowling, sea swims etc.
The club run an annual beach lifeguard course with Adventure bay. Getting this qualification will mean you can almost definitely get a job as a beach lifeguard around Plymouth or further afield for summer. It also also useful if you want to become a surf coach. The club can also train beach lifeguards throughout the year. Come and speak to us as the freshers fair or give one of us a message.
The University of Plymouth Surf Lifesaving Club 2019/2020 are planning a very exciting year, with beach sessions, competitions and fun and educational activities abundant!
