 Outdoor Lifesaving Sport Program is back for Summer 2018!

Welcoming all skill levels for Masters, Varsity, Lifeguards, and some of our Senior Swimmers 

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: July 2nd -  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.  Consider carpooling, purchasing a pass, and you can take as many people as your vehicle can hold – split the costs.  Meet at the Main Beach of Guelph Lake.
