Pool & Surf Lifesaving Club

Club Forms and Information:
Wexford Pool & Surf Lifesaving Club takes part in the sport of Surf Lifesaving, we are the sports branch of Wexford Water Safety.
Surf Lifesaving is a sport that incorporates all the skills involved in lifeguarding.  With great speed, endurance, technique and a strong mentality, our members compete against the best lifeguards in Ireland.
As a club we also look to provide our members with the skills and fitness necessary to potentially save a life, should their skills be called upon.  Many of our members go on to work on beaches and in swimming pools around Wexford as IWS qualified lifeguards.
Our club caters for swimmers from the ages of 8 years and above, who have completed at least Marlin 10 (IWS) or the equivalent from another organisation, and can show that they can safely take part in training sessions and events.
For further information about the club you can contact us by emailing wexfordsurflifesaving@gmail.com.
