What is Underwater Hockey

Underwater hockey is a sport played on the bottom of a pool using mask, snorkel, and fins. SCUBA is not used. A plastic covered lead puck is pushed or flicked along the pool bottom with a short stick (about 10 inches long) that is held with one hand only. There are six players per team in the water at one time and up to four substitutes, available to jump in at any time, are allowed.

The playing area is roughly 25m long by 15m wide and optimally 2.5m deep. There is a goal at each end of the playing area, which is a metal trough about 10 feet across and just deep enough so that the puck doesn't come out once put in.

The object of the game is to put the puck in the opposition's goal. To do this a team must work together, for one person can not feasibly score a goal alone. There are a variety of strategies and formats a team plays to be most effective.

There are over 500 known Underwater Hockey players in the world (1999 UWH census)
