Sports - Pool Rescue
Pool Rescue is Surf Life Saving's winter season sport. It is a chance for U11s - Masters to practice life saving skills in the pool. An all-rounder also likes to get in the pool at the Pool Rescue events to maintain fitness, raise skill levels and have loads of fun.
There are four events each year - Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Queensland State and Australian Nationals. The Australian Pool Rescue Championships are held in various States each year.
Kirra SLSC was very successful at the State and National Pool Rescue Championships in 2018. A team of two, comprising of Masters age categories, won a swag of medals.
