UAE NATIONAL LIFEGUARD CHAMPIONSHIPS

The 12th anniversary of the UAE National Lifeguard Championships, will take place on TUESDAY, 05 DECEMBER 2017, at LE MERIDIEN AL AQAH BEACH RESORT, FUJAIRAH, UAE.

Launched for the first time in 2006, the UAE NATIONAL LIFEGUARD CHAMPIONSHIPS (NLC) is an annual event that has developed over the years into a landmark event for lifeguards throughout the United Arab Emirates.

Designed as a one day event to challenge the lifeguards skills and physical fitness through a series of competitive challenges, the NLC also offers lifeguards the opportunity to socialize amongst their peers and participate in a recognized event that is demanding, rewarding and enjoyable, and recognizes the very important role that they play in maintaining safety at the pools and beaches. Although the emphasis is primarily on lifeguard participation and competition, the NLC also aims to promote Water Safety Education, and each year receives a considerable amount of publicity that spreads the message of water & beach safety throughout the United Arab Emirates.

This National competition is designed as a competitive training initiative for lifeguards from across the country. Not only will it be the ultimate challenge for lifeguard teams but it will also be a positive way to increase water & beach safety though out the United Arab Emirates.

Since the first competition in Fujairah in 2006, the NLC has seen almost 500 lifesavers compete in 17 different events in teams of 4 or as individuals. Knowledge and skills will be tested in the areas of leadership, emergency procedures, team work and intense physical fitness. Although the majority of competitors are male, an ever increasing number of female lifeguards have also come through the ranks to compete in the NLC.

This year’s event is promised to be bigger and better than ever, with one Team / Individual being crowned as the UAE’s ultimate lifesaver.
