Lifesaving World Championships 2020

The ILS is pleased to confirm that the Lifesaving World Championships 2020 (LWC 2020) will take place in Riccione, Italy from 18th September to 5th October 2020.  The ILS has recently concluded discussions with the host, Federazione Italiana Nuoto (Sezione Salvamento) (FIN-S) and its Agent that will handle the accommodation and service package purchases.

The details of how to register for these packages, and also how to enter the LWC 2020 competitions are contained in the attached letter which has been sent to all ILS Member Federations earlier today.

    Looking forward for more details

  3. Please confirm that this is correct and will in fact happen. As our group of 6 have our accommodation.
    Can I still book without any services and receive a code to compete?
    Yes, that option will be possible, but is not encouraged. The people using this option will be able to receive a code in May 2020 to allow them to enter the competition. This will give them the possibility for one year to look and compare and hopefully realise that the offer from the FIN-S is the only way forward.

    • No, unfortunately, this is not correct. The guidance was republished as the first version published on 14th June was incorrect. All participants will need to go through the process of purchasing the accommodation and service packages before they can register for the competition.

  4. Please advise this has now changed that we can not organise our own accommodation and then collect a competition pack.

    • No, this is not the case, all participants for LWC 2020 must first purchase their accommodation and service packages before they then enter the event. This was confirmed in the post sent out on 14th June 2019 and has not changed. it is mandatory for all participants – contact who can assist with this.

  5. Amendment to the above comment… That is we can organise our own accommodation!

    • As with the previous response, all participants must first purchase their accommodation and service packages from the ORION agency in order to enter the event.

  6. What if we do not need accommodation as we can stay with family in Riccione Italy?What is the minimum package required to be able to enter?
    We are being met by family at the airport and transferring in their vehicle to their home.We just require entry!
