About Lifesaving

Loughborough Students Lifesaving Club is a friendly, mixed ability club with both Performance and Development Squads. We cater for all abilities, with members who have previously never heard of the sport, to athletes competing on the international stage. We also have a strong social scene with great themes and great people that builds a fantastic atmosphere within the club.

Lifesaving is such a unique sport, incorporating both swimming events and first aid scenarios. If you want to experience an exciting new sport, make friends for life and be part of the most successful lifesaving club in the UK, then this is the team for you!
