The 2010 Pool Lifeguard Challenge sponsored by AVP Commercial Pools and LIWA Aquatics     was conducted on the 18th of February at Challenge Stadium.  The VenuesWest staff did a great job in configuring the 10 lane pool into two 25 meter segments for the event.  The pool, which was upgraded to 51 meters in late 2007 by AVP Commercial Pools to facilitate the installation of a boom, looked beautiful.

This year a record number of teams participated in the event which clearly demonstrates the support of facility managers in promoting the Challenge to their staff members and allowing them to attend in working hours.  This even came down the provision of specially designed shorts for Lifeguards in the City of Melville team.  The Lifeguard Challenge consisted of three individual events designed to assess both the physical attributes of the Lifeguards as well as their ability to react in the pressure a simulated emergency.

The results were, third place Fremantle Leisure Centre, second place Melville Aquatic Centre and the winners of the 2010 AVP Lifeguard Challenge - Beatty Park Leisure Centre.  Ryan presented awards to all teams and they were commended on their commitment and dedication to their roles as Pool Lifeguards.

 This year's event was a great test of the ability of our Pool Lifeguards and clearly demonstrated the support for this type of event by all the Local Governments involved in the Challenge.  It was a great result for all involved and Beatty Park Leisure Centre was a very worthy winner in a very close finish.
