The European Junior Lifesaving Championships is an annual event organised under the aegis of ILS-Europe. It is open those aged 18 and under. The sport of lifesaving exists to encourage lifesavers to maintain the skills, drills and physical fitness required for performing their lifesaving duties. The sport is truly multi-disciplined and takes place in the pool, on the beach and in the ocean. It has close ties to swimming, athletics, kayaking, rowing, surfing and power boating and is based on the equipment and skills of lifeguards. The championships has events which take place in the pool, on the beach and in the ocean. Ireland will proudly play host in 2018. The event will take place in Limerick (Pool) & Clare (Beach) nestled in the West Of Ireland along The Wild Atlantic Way.
The pool events will be hosted in University of Limerick’s Sports Arena and the beach events are taking place in nearby Kilkee in Co Clare.
