Australian Pool Life Saving Championships

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.

Representative teams are chosen yearly at the Australian Pool Life Saving Championships. These teams - called the 'Aussie Barra's' are named after the Barramundi fish - an aggressive fresh and saltwater fish found in Australian waters.

In addition to the Open Aussie Barras team; a Junior (Under 16) Aussie Barras team and Silver (Under 19) Aussie Barras Team are also selected to attend an annual Training Camp and various selected International Competitions throughout the year.
