The University of Bristol Lifesaving Club is an inclusive, mixed ability club, welcoming students from both UoB and UWE whether they have lifesaving experience or are completely new to competitive lifesaving. Our club is renowned in both the BULSCA and RLSS communities, with a handful of members selected for national squads. The club is proud to offer a competitive experience to all members who wish to partake, and our qualified training officers provide a tailored programme which sees UBLSC secure top positions across the BULSCA League and Championships. We hold regular socials, host a Freshers Series and new to this year, have a Lifesaving Family Programme, so fresh and seniors alike can bask in the lifesaving love! 

We train three times a week; a pool and first-aid on Wednesday and an additional first-aid session on Thursday. As a member of our club, you will have the opportunity to maintain training hours for a pre-existing NPLQ and the opportunity to progress in the RLSS Survive and Save and a Student-Led RLSS qualifications. These qualifications are popular amongst our members, with a 100% pass rate across the last five years, demonstrating our student coaches’ dedication to well-rounded training.  

Additionally, UBLSC maintains close relations with the Keynsham Community Lifesaving Group, enabling shared expertise during shared training sessions and the opportunity for friendly competitions!
