The 2019 GBR Lifesaving Squad has been selected from:

  • those who have displayed consistently high performance
  • results from the 2018 season,
  • recent still water events and ocean tests. 

The aim of the squad is to assemble the best British Lifesaving athletes who will be monitored for progress against agreed targets, can support each other through training and from which the representative GBR teams will be chosen to compete at the 2019 European Lifesaving Championships in Italy.

  • All Open and Youth Athletes will have declared they are willing and available to compete in Italy or they will not be eligible for the Squad
  • All Open and Youth Athletes must be a British Citizen / hold a British Passport and be in good standing with RLSS UK/SLSGB/SLSA Wales
  • Athletes must be an individual full member of SLSGB or RLSS UK, or in the case of SLSA Wales athletes, eligible by means of the Competition Rights Agreement between SLSGB and SLSA Wales.

 

Selection Process

The GBR teams for 2019 European Lifesaving Championships in Italy will be selected from the 2019 GBR Lifesaving squad based upon recommendations made by Selectors appointed by the One Team Steering Group. 

The One Team Steering Group consists of nominated representatives from SLSGB, RLSS UK and SLSA Wales.  The Selectors recommendations have been reviewed and ratified by the One Team Steering Group.
