CSLSA and USLA Championship ELIGIBILITY:
Lifeguard competitors must be a bona-fide professional member of a USLA chapter affiliated lifeguard service or a retired professional lifeguard receiving a pension from said lifeguard service. Foreign competitors must apply in writing to the USLA National Committee for a waiver of eligibility requirements and will not be eligible for awards or points. A non-professional member may compete if they were a professional member for three seasons/years and maintain their membership in the USLA. Non-professional members must donate 24 hours a season to their USLA Chapter Lifeguard Agency in service not connected to lifesaving sport. An application for a non-professional member must be submitted to the USLA Competition Chairman. Competitors must have paid their USLA dues to their appropriate Regional Treasurer prior to commencement of USLA Championships.

Many other GREAT (lifeguard related) events are scheduled each year up and down the coast of California. The Bud Light Ocean Festival Series hosted by the American Surf Racing Association (ASRA) is open to lifeguards and non-lifeguards alike. Other events have a rich tradition like the MEGA COLOSSUS hosted by the Huntington State Beach lifeguards every August.
