NYP Life Saving Club is a competitive team sport akin to Surf Life Saving, a movement widely popular and respected in Australia.
Contrary to popular belief, Life Saving is not just about swimming. It is the only sport in the world that serves a humanitarian purpose. In Life Saving, members are trained to handle an array of equipment to perform various rescue operations. From a tow rescue to a board rescue on the beach or in pools, the life savers are equipped with resuscitation and first aid skills to deal with land and water based emergencies.
The training sessions are conducted through fun and competitive still water and open water events. The life savers also get an opportunity to earn Life Saving qualifications (Lifesaving 1, 2, 3 and Bronze Medallion) with the guidance of professional coaches. The team has won several national competitions and often organises fun team bonding activities and outings in addition to training sessions. Through these activities, the students come together as one team and support each other both in and out of the club’s activities.
