British Universities Lifesaving Clubs' Association


The Championships

The BULSCA Student Championships is the highlight of the year, where clubs come together and compete in a two day competition.

On the first day, the competition takes the same form as the RLSS National Speed Championships. Clubs form teams consisting of up to twelve members, who take part in various individual and relay events.

The second day, takes the form of a normal league competition with the exception of the speed events. The clubs from the first day split into three teams of four, who compete in all team events.

The overall Championships result is formed from the results of the first and second day combined.


When everyone comes crawling back to show off just how good at swimming they truely are!
