Lifesaving Sport and Development

The Lifesaving Sport and Development stream focused on the role of lifesaving sport in drowning prevention and organisational development. It was developed under the leadership of the ILS Sport Commission and looks at new research and thinking about the benefits of lifesaving sport, its ongoing development, including coaches and officials, and support systems for athletes.
