What we're about

We have scheduled events for September and October. Please RSVP to events that you can attend.

Underwater What?

Underwater Hockey is a co-ed, non-contact, water sport played on the bottom of the pool. It is a very unique game in that it is 3-dimensional and requires you to play while holding your breath. Players wear fins, for speed, as well as masks, snorkels, and protective gloves and headgear. The sticks are short -- about one foot long -- so players can move them quickly through the water. Sticks flick and flash as players maneuver the puck on the bottom, shoot the puck past (or over) defenders, and bat down shots.

Underwater hockey play and strategy is similar to soccer or ice hockey. On average, each player is underwater less than 5 seconds at a time, and almost never more than 15 seconds. Success -- putting the puck in the goal trough at the bottom of each end wall -- ultimately depends on teamwork, not how long you can hold your breath.

Who Can Play?

Anyone! Because the game is underwater there is very little stress on the joints, and the water is a great equalizer allowing men and women, small and large players, to compete on the same level. You are invited to come use our equipment and try the game out (for free!!) and see if you like it. We have plenty of beginners every week so you are sure to fit in and have a good time, and guaranteed to get a great workout. We also go out together for Margaritas afterward.

See you on the bottom!

We will be playing in our INDOOR / deep regular pool: the Midtown Aquatic Center (570 McLawhorne Dr, Newport News, VA 23601) on SATURDAYS, from 11:30 am on the deck / 11:45 am beginning of the game to 1:45 pm. For this: o Every one has to sign the waiver your first time at this pool. The pool will not let you get in if you have not signed it. We can email to you ahead of time or sign it at the pool. o There are some Covid protocols to follow. Please read them carefully as if we do not follow them we could lose our slots at the pool. In a nutshell: You have to come with a mask that you only take off in the water (you have to wear it when you go to the bathroom for example … ) You have to stop at the pool booth to sign in (I sent the pool our roster already) You do not exit the same way you enter the pool No locker room available On the deck, we all have to remain 10 feet away from each other, so really really: jump in the pool as soon as possible to clear the deck! The cost of those sessions is 15$/ session for us to be able to cover the cost of lanes rental. If you could bring that money every time you are coming, that would be great! Or you could pay via Venmo or paypal. For regular pre-pay club members it will count as a double session.
