Underwater Hockey (UWH) is a non-contact competitive sport played on the bottom of a pool while wearing a mask, snorkel and fins. A plastic coated puck is pushed and shot between players with a short, 12 inch stick as teams attempt to advance the puck into goals located at both ends of the pool. Although breath control is a part of the game, most dives are only about ten seconds long. Emphasis is placed on three-dimensional awareness, underwater finesse and most importantly, on teamwork. Underwater Hockey is an excellent way to have a fun swimming workout while being involved in a socially friendly, team-oriented sport, UWH also dramatically improves one's snorkeling and scuba skills and overall level of comfort in the water!
The club is actively looking for additional male and female players. All participants must know how to swim, however competitive swimming experience is not required. The UWH club encourages both competitive and recreational participation. Everyone is welcome whether you want to join the competitive "tournament team" or are simply interested in a fun water sport that facilitates recreation and exercise. Participants are welcome to bring their own mask, fins and snorkel, however equiptment is available to borrow during practice.
