USLA HPS Camps Clinics and Lifesaving Sport Events
Share |

We would like to thank everyone for their response to the USLA High Performance Squad (HPS) application process. We encourage all USLA members to get involved with local, regional and national Lifesaving Sport events to improve their lifesaving skills and fitness levels.


The United States Lifesaving Association National Team will be competing alongside national teams from Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and Japan (Open & Youth) on Aoshima Beach, Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan.

The Sanyo Cup 2016 is more than a competition. It is about meeting fellow lifesavers, renewing friendship and exchanging ideas. Japan officials have chosen Aoshima Beach so international athletes will continue to spread the international lifesaving message to the local communities. The event at Aoshima was a big success last year!

The United States Lifesaving Association would like to extend their most sincere thanks to the Japan Lifesaving Association.
