Cancelation of the 2021 Canadian Surf & Pool Lifesaving Championships

After much deliberation, the difficult decision has been made to cancel both the 2021 Canadian Surf Lifesaving Championships, and the 2021 Canadian Pool Lifesaving Championships.

Although we have seen positive improvement with the COVID-19 pandemic in Canada, the hosting provinces of these championships continue to be met with restrictions that prevent them from effectively planning these events.  Additionally, taking into account the high number of participants expected to attend these championships, the Lifesaving Society must consider the safety and well-being of its athletes, coaches, officials and other supporters as a top priority.

For athletes who wish to be considered for the 2022 Lifesaving World Championship National Team tour, selection criteria will be circulated shortly which accounts for the cancelation of the 2021 Canadian Championships.

We look forward to a time where we may again offer our national athletes high-performance racing opportunities.
