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 120 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.
In 2017/18 UPSLC trained Beach Lifeguards many of which have gone off the following summer to work on the local beaches for the RNLI, this being a valuable rewarding seasonal job for all students, as you learn teamwork and putting your skills into practice. UPSLC have also trained many Pool Lifeguards who have then worked at leisure centres while at university, home and even abroad!
The University of Plymouth Surf Lifesaving Club 2018/2019 are planning a very exciting year, with beach sessions, opportunities and fun and educational activities abundant!
