The Management Board has noted the Gazetting of the Minister of Sport and Recreation’s Covid-19 Level 3 Guidelines. We note the omission of Lifesaving from the list of Federations along with Surfing and Swimming. We are in discussions with DSRAC with regards to this. It appears to be an omission. We do as a Federation have 14 days in which to submit our plans to resume activities and are working towards this goal.


All Provincial RCEs and Sport Officers for the provinces have received draft guidelines which will be submitted, clubs are welcome to discuss any concerns with them to raise with the Directors before Wednesday 17th 2020.


To that end we kindly request all Clubs Districts and Provinces to appoint a Compliance Officer and submit a complete copy of the attached questionnaire and each District and Province the agreement to LSA Head Office by Wednesday, 17th June 2020. These details are to be sent as returned to DSRAC in our submission so we kindly ask that they be answered correctly.


Club, Districts and Provinces are requested to indicate on which date one member will be available to attend a briefing session via Zoom with regards to the LSA Risk Mitigation guidelines:

  • 18th June 2020 at 18h30
  • 19th June 2020 at 18h30.


Please also find attached some signage that clubs may make use of in the club houses or training facilities.


Yours in lifesaving
