This meetup is to teach basic underwater hockey skills and rules to new players. It is meant to introduce new and interested players to the basics of Underwater Hockey. Underwater Hockey is fundamentally different than any other sport and can be initially confusing. This meetup is designed to help get over the initial hurdle.

The following video gives a primer on what Underwater Hockey is:

It is required that new players attend a New Player Meetup once before scrimmaging. Previous snorkeling experience is preferred.

Basis plan for meetup.
a) Meet in the lobby area of the pool and go over the games rules and equipment. (1 hour)
b) Go to pool and get familiar with equipment and do some basic drills and some easy scrimmaging. (1.5 hour)

We provide the hockey gear, you need to bring the following

- Swimsuit and Towel
- Optional pair of (clean!) sweat socks. This can help protect your feet from chafing on the fins.
- Optional shampoo.
- Optional lock for locker (If you don't have one, you can lock your stuff with another team member)

*** Important: New Player Meetup RSVP Rules ***

If you RSVP for a new player meetup, please show up on time. This meetup is a presentation, and we won't start until everyone is there, or until we give up waiting. If your plans change then update your RSVP. If a last minute emergency occurs, call or text me (I will have provided you with my call number before the meetup).

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
