The Federazione Italiana Nuoto (Sezione Salvamento) is pleased to host a “RESCUE WORLD CUP” event in Riccione, Italy from Wednesday 21 September to Monday 26 September 2022. This event will be held alongside the ILS Lifesaving World Championships (LWC) 2022 for Masters competitors in Riccione, Italy.

It offers an opportunity for all those who are non-Masters (under 30 in the year of competition) and whose Interclub Championship events have had to be cancelled at LWC 2022 to participate in a world-level international lifesaving event in individual competition. This event will be endorsed by the ILS.

Because of ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, the events will be run according to strict protocols which will require regular Covid-19 testing of participants throughout the conduct of the events. Further detailed information on the measures that will be in place in September 2022 will be provided at a later date.

This page provides information on the Eligibility Criteria, the Events that make up the competition, the format of the programme and the terms and conditions for entry.
