Affiliate Recognition Awards

 

2008 AGM trophies

The Lifesaving Society annually recognizes Affiliate Members who deliver the Society's training programs, promote Water Smart® public education, and raise funds in support of the Society's drowning prevention mission.

Most recognition awards are presented on the basis of points earned (see Point System below). Point values reward affiliates who offer a full menu of lifesaving programs and reflect the relative degree of difficulty or amount of training and effort required to achieve each level including the programming time commitment.
