Underwater Hockey

 

Underwater hockey is a fast moving game that quickly builds swimming and free diving capabilities. It is co-ed, a great workout, and a lot of fun! It is played on the bottom of a 6-8 feet swimming pool by two teams of six. Players wear fins, mask, snorkel, and a protective glove and headgear (the same kind as for water polo).

The stick is short (1 ft.), the puck is heavy (3 lbs.), Play and strategy are similar to soccer or ice hockey except that the playing service is at the bottom of a pool. The rules are “non-contact” and players generally cover zones around the puck.

 

Success (scoring) ultimately depends on teamwork, since no single player can hold his/her breath forever. Play is fast and exciting – you go at it hard while holding your breath. The sport offers great cross-training for runners, swimmers, and bikers.

 

Plus, because it’s non-contact and underwater, people of different sizes and genders play on an equal field.

The club has gear to lend to new players, but if you have a mask and snorkel you are comfortable with, please bring them along.
