Each summer the CSLSA hosts one regional competition for lifeguards and junior lifeguards called the California Surf Life Saving Championships. This event is usually held during the second week of July each year and open only to the CSLSA membership from the 30 Chapters/Agencies. The CSLSA is a Regional member of the United States Lifesaving Association (USLA).

Similarly, during the first week of August each year the USLA hosts one national competition. The USLA National Championships are open only to members of the eight regions of the USLA.
CSLSA and USLA Championship ELIGIBILITY:
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.
