There are three different forms of R & R.
- 2 person (mixed sexes U10 – U13)
- 5 person (mixed for ages U12 –U14, U15, U17, U19 & Open Mixed)
- 6 person (Open Mixed)
Competitors are required to perform different roles depending on their position within the team. Participation in the event requires swimmers to have moderate to strong swimming ability while non-swimmers need to have moderate fitness levels. Competitors in the 2 person and 5 person events (U12 – U15s) are not required to swim.
The Rescue and Resuscitation (R&R) competition provides the opportunity for members to demonstrate in a competitive manner some traditional rescue and resuscitation techniques used in Surf Life Saving.
