In 2012, members of “Greek Lifeguards” established the Hellenic Lifesaving Club (H.L.C.), the first Lifesaving Sport Club in Athens with its main objective to increase awareness and popularity for Lifesaving as a Competitive Sport. H.L.C. is affiliated with both Hellenic Swimming Federation (H.S.F) and Hellenic Federation for Underwater Activities, Sport Fishing and Fin Swimming (HFUA).
A training delegation of H.L.C. attended Lifesaving World Championships – Rescue in Montpellier/France and European Lifesaving Championships in Swansea/UK – in order to obtain the necessary knowledge and experience for participation in upcoming sport events and Championships.
