Q: Who can register a team?

A: Registrations can only be made by team managers whether they are managers of a national or club team. They will be able to add individual team members to the various events within championships. The OrgaNet User Guide explains how to take the correct action to successfully register your team, click here to download.


Q: I am responsible for both the Open and Youth Teams registration for my club – can I just make one registration to cover both teams?

A: No, each Lifesaving World Championships is a separate event, so you must submit separate registrations for each event.  Click on the Registration icon alongside the event for which you wish to register your team.  You can only register one club team in each event, except where additional teams are permitted (as in the IRB Interclub event).


Q: Who can compete?

A: Check the Competition Handbook for full eligibility criteria.
Specific information for Australian competitors: for an individual who is a member of SLSA in 2017 to receive endorsement to compete in the ILS LWC 2018 they must meet their patrol, proficiency and other membership requirements detailed in SLSA Policy 5.4 and accompanying guidelines.  They must also become proficient for 2018 and satisfy their club requirements.


Q: I am an individual competitor.  Do I need to register myself?

A: This system is designed for team managers to register their teams.  An individual competitor must not register using this system, unless they are the only member of their club competing at LWC 2018 (see below).


Q: I am the only competitor representing my club at LWC 2018.  How do I register?

If you are the only competitor who will be representing your club team, you should register using this system.  Complete your registration and once approved, create yourself as a participant and enter yourself into the relevant events. You must enter yourself as a competitor because you can only register for an event in one capacity.  Do not register yourself as a Team Manager in the Attendant functions.
