TeleGames are inter-club level competitions held at aquatic facilities throughout the year. TeleGames provide competitors an opportunity to experience lifesaving sport events in a fun and supportive environment. It also offers them a chance to compare their performance with other lifesavers without travelling. Download the TeleGames Handbook. Download the Results Package.
Participating affiliates may run one or all of the TeleGames events at their own facilities. Event results are forwarded to the scoring centre where results from all participating affiliates are compiled.
Four TeleGames are scheduled in 2018 - Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.
