• What we'll do
Underwater hockey is a low impact, non-contact, co-ed sport that combines elements of swimming, diving, hockey and snorkeling. Two teams compete to maneuver a puck across the bottom of a swimming pool into goals. Players wear a diving mask, fins, protective gloves and a snorkel for play. They play with small, foot-long sticks and a hockey-type puck. Players from each team try to score in goals that are nine-feet long.
Underwater hockey is an excellent way to stay in shape. The constant swimming will improve your cardio as well as your stamina. You will also strengthen your core muscles, like your abs and back playing this game. This game is also very fun and will allow you to play something that is unique.
This is a non-contact sport - the person with the puck can't be physically pushed. One is allowed to play the puck, but not merely block opponents with their body. This, combined with the fact the water acts as an equalizer makes this a sport suitable for all ages, shapes and sizes. Men and women ages 16 and up are welcome.
It is always good to try something new and we guarantee underwater hockey is unlike anything you will ever experience! Our club welcomes new players and we will gladly take the time to ease you into the sport and give you all the instruction you need to start playing.
