Royal Life Saving Society Western Australia

The sport of Pool Lifesaving involves students learning how to conduct water rescues in a safe and fun environment. The program can be easily incorporated into your current swim program, swim club or school sports. Have the Sport Development Program Officer visit your pool and teach you all the skills needed to run this popular program.

Young people aged 15-24 have the second highest drowning rate of any age group in Western Australia, with young males being particularly over-represented.

Royal Life Saving Society WA’s ‘Be a Mermate’ campaign aims to reduce drowning and aquatic injury by educating young people about the dangers associated with
alcohol consumption and risk-taking behaviour in and around water.

Our FREE water safety presentations, interactive stalls and educational resources raise awareness of these risk factors and provide young people with the skills to look out for their mates in and around water.
