Outdoor Lifesaving Sport Program is back for Summer 2018!
Welcoming all skill levels from beginners to returning athletes!
This year we are excited to announce that our own athlete Sebastian Reimer and Coach Haylie Burton have been named to the Canadian Team to attend the Lifesaving World Championships in Adelaide, Australia in November 2018.
As a Guelph Lifesaving member, you will participate in all events of the Outdoor Lifesaving Sport: paddle boarding, beach running, open water swimming, beach flags, etc. Lots of fun! All skill levels are welcome! A new sport to learn that gives participants a feel for both land and water activities.
Program Duration: June 27th - August 15th
Location: Guelph Lake Conservation Area – Guelph Lake does charge the public for entry into the park. If you are just dropping off, they will only charge you for the participant.
