2020 Start of Term Update:
The Students' Union are in the process of updating the new website and we have limited functionality because of this. For all interested members and returners, please make sure you either click on the "Register Interest" link above or renew your Club membership so we can contact you with our start of term events and invite you to our member-only groups on Facebook and Microsoft Teams. You must be logged in to see the links. Many thanks, the committee look forward to seeing you soon!
Welcome to the University of Nottingham Sport Lifesaving Club!
Welcome to the SU page of one of the friendliest clubs on the UoN campus! Our club is open to anyone; whether you're an experienced lifesaver, swimmer or someone who never even realised it was even a sport! We train twice to three a week and compete nationally in the BULSCA league against other universities around the country.
"What is lifesaving?" we hear you say. UoN Sport Lifesaving Club combines first aid and rescue skills with competitive swimming and is completely different from any other sports club!
Our competitions test fitness, rescue and first aid skills and what's great is that it's not just about physical aptitude - it's also about the ability to prioritise, adapt and show initiative.
We are a sociable club and compete at weekends in mixed teams of 4 at Universities across the country including Sheffield, Warwick, Birmingham and Southampton after which are amazing socials, which are great for getting to know fellow lifesavers from all over the country. We also hold a mix of socials throughout the year.
