Underwater hockey is a fast-paced, physical game where players use a small stick to manoeuvre a puck across the bottom of a 2m deep pool into the goal. Teams are made up of six players and four substitutes, with players able to interchange at any stage during the game. Players wear a mask, snorkel and fins, which makes the games extremely quick as players race through the water and can continue to watch the game as they surface for air.
Teams work hard to discuss and implement team strategies that allow them to maintain possession, control and momentum in a game where players can’t talk to each other underwater and need to keep popping up to breathe! It’s a fun, fast team sport which is a great workout and a natural extension for anyone who loves the water.
