How long have you played underwater hockey?

About 10years

What do you like about UWH?

I enjoy everything under water. Swam my entire life, lifeguarded, worked in marine rescue, commercial diving, volunteered at shedd diving, so its only natural that I spend my free time playing a game under water :-)

How did you come across this unique sport?

I was lifeguarding a pool they used for scrimmages. Players asked me to try it and been playing off and on ever since :-)

Introduction

Training for triathlons, swimming and racing in general became boring. Uwh makes getting a workout fun! That's the biggest reason I go to scrimmage. It can become competitive at various tournaments and so there's challenges to overcome!
