British Universities Lifesaving Clubs' Association



Club President: Adam Lane 

Training Officers: Sally Hull and Lauren Hill 


We are the newest club in BULSCA, having only been founded in 2021, but we have certainly not let that stop us from making a big impact in university lifesaving. We take competitions seriously but also know how to have fun and enjoy a good social at the same time. We cater for all levels of lifesaver so if you're a veteran lifesaver or completely new to the sport, we have a place for you!

We train in a huge variety of swimming, first aid, and water rescue events. Lifesaving allows you to compete in a team of four throughout the year in speeds and first aid events, in addition to opportunities to compete individually in speeds events. Competitions are a great way to test your skills against fellow students and meet Lifesavers from all over the country.
