State Representative Teams

State Representative Teams

RLS NSW selects a State Representative team each year to compete at the Australian Pool Life Saving Championships (APLSC). 

The Australian Pool Life Saving Championships have been conducted in various forms since 1965. Originally held every two years, since 1987 they are now held annually and consist of 3 days of Pool Lifesaving competition with events combining an Under 14 and Senior (Under 16, Under 19, Open and Masters) Competition.

Athlete talent identification is often announced at the Australian Pool Life Saving Championships called the 'Aussie Barra's' who are named after the Barramundi fish - a fresh and saltwater fighting fish found in Australian waters.

In addition to the Open Aussie Barras, a Junior (Under 16) Aussie Barras and Silver (Under 19) Aussie Barras are also identified. 


The 2020 APLSC were held in WA at the HBF Stadium, Mount Claremont from Friday 10th - Sunday 12th January 2019
