The University of Sheffield Lifesaving Club is an inclusive, mixed-ability sports club, involving pool rescue, first aid, and speed events. With around 25 members from both University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University, we’re one of the smallest sports clubs at Sheffield, but that doesn’t stop us from achieving great results!

Our club caters to all aspects of lifesaving – so no matter whether you’re interested in competing with us, you’re looking to gain qualifications, or you just want to learn new skills, our club is for you!

We train three times per week – two sessions in the pool and one first aid session. Our training sessions are divided into practicing competition skills and teaching qualifications. More information about the club can be found on the University’s club sport page:

We’re always keen to welcome new members. We hold several free taster sessions at the start of each semester in September and February which are suitable for all abilities – whether you’re an experienced lifesaver, a swimmer looking for more diverse races, or a complete beginner. Keep an eye out on our social media for more details on these events.
