Lifesaving is one of the most unique and interesting sports you will find at Birmingham; with a mixture of real-life first aid skills, simulated emergency response scenarios AND swimming… with a twist!

We are one of the most successful university lifesaving clubs in the UK, offering some of the best student coaching and expertise. 


We will be training 3 times a week in the pool, as well as having some dry side First Aid Training. Please note: this may be held virtually at least for the first term.

Through being a member of our club, you have the opportunity to progress in RLSS Survive and Save awards as well as complete the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) at a discounted price. This qualification allows you to work as a lifeguard all across the UK. In addition to this, we also offer NPLQ training hours.


The highlight of our year is BULSCA Student Championships. This is a whole weekend of competing at the highest level against universities from all over the country. A lot of our training is geared towards this competition as there are a lot of fun speed events that we don’t do in normal competitions.


Our club socials are also incredibly popular and are often the highlights of our members year. Anything from camping trips to day outs to theme parks, alongside our weekly socials, there is always something to look forward to.
