Welcome, Underwater Hockey Players!

WHAT IS UNDERWATER HOCKEY?
Underwater hockey is a very fast moving game that provides great excercise and quickly builds swimming capability. It is played on the bottom of a swimming pool and players wear fins, mask, snorkel, and a protective glove and headgear. The stick is short, approximately 1 foot long, the puck is heavy, around 3 lb., and the goal is 3 meters (9′) long. The rules are “non-contact” and players generally cover “zones” around the puck. Success (scoring) ultimately depends on teamwork. Since the sport is played in the water, individual strength is less of an advantage than it is in many other sports. This makes the sport open and fun to anyone from complete rookies to long-time players who interested in a great workout.

WHO?
Underwater hockey is open to men and women of all ages. Beginners are always welcome. We’re always happy to give instructions for anybody wishing to learn or improve their play. You’ll be able to jump in and try the game your first night if you wish.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
We take up a collection of $15/per session to cover the cost of the pool.  New players and anyone who just wants to observe a game are not asked to contribute to the collection.

WHAT DO I BRING?
If you have snorkeling gear (mask, fins and snorkel) please bring it.  We often have some extra masks, fins and snorkels for you to borrow but our “extras” are often very limited.  Otherwise, all you really need is a swimsuit and towel.
