Nova Scotia Lifesaving Sport League

Established in 2000, the Nova Scotia Lifesaving Sport League (formerly Nova Scotia Surf League) is Canada’s first lifesaving competition series. It was developed to provide opportunities for Nova Scotia lifeguards to be involved in ocean competitions.

The Nova Scotia Lifesaving Sport League is operated by the Nova Scotia Lifeguard Service (NSLS) and consists of three lifesaving sport competitions throughout the summer between late June and the end of August.

Anyone who is 16 and holds a current Bronze Medallion or higher LSS Award is eligible to compete. Competitors may compete as “unattached” or with a “club team”.
The Lifesaving Sport Series events are conducted according to the 2013 edition of the International Life Saving Federation Competition Manual and the Canadian Competition Manual 2012 edition.

The Nova Scotia Lifesaving Sport League has helped establish and maintain Nova Scotia’s reputation for having some of the top surf trained lifeguards in Canada. In addition, it has helped increase exposure to the continuously expanding sport of Lifesaving Sport. The series was established in the spirit of the Lifesaving Society’s objective to establish a lifesaving competition system in Canada that is consistent with world events and standards.
