West Region Championships 2017

23 September 2017


Copyright: Sedgemoor District Council

This is the Regional Heat of the National Lifesaving Championships 2017.

This year entering the National Lifesaving Championships has changed. Everyone will enter the Championships directly with RLSS UK, rather than through your local Branch. Every participant will pay a fixed fee of £15, with a small proportion of the fee being given to the West Region to help fund the Regional Championships.

Additionally, all participants will enter the Regional Championships automatically – there is no longer a qualifying Branch Heat. However some branches may run a Branch Heat for competitors to practice.

All entries to the National Lifesaving Championships need to be made by the 1st June 2017. Sign up online at: RLSS UK NLSC 2017 Entries

The Competition

The competition will take place on Saturday 23rd September at Trinity Sports and Leisure, Bridgwater (details can be found below).

The RLSS UK College of Referees has yet to assign the Referee for the Regional Heat. They will ensure that the competition is run in accordance with the National Lifesaving Championships Rules 2017, which can be downloaded here.

The timings of the Regional Championships will be released once finalised.

Once isolated, competitors will complete the competition events in the following order:

1. Dry Initiative;
2. Wet Initiative;
3. Line Throw;
4. Swim and Tow.

Once the wet initiative has been completed, competitors will be able to join family and friends in the viewing area. Please ensure competitors have suitable clothing and footwear, a drink and any food as needed before isolation closes. The swimming pool has lockers for all additional items not needed in isolation.

All competitors will be contacted directly to inform them of the arrangements. If you have any questions, please contact Alex Blandford (Regional Heat Organiser) using the contact details below.
