We would like to welcome you to this exhilarating underwater sport, to help you find a team and get started.
Welcome to the best game you’ll ever play while holding your breath and floating
Underwater hockey can be played by anyone who is able to swim and use a snorkel and mask. UWH is played all around the world and is enjoyed equally by male and female players of all ages. It is a non-contact sport and is because it is played in the water there is little or no stress on your joints when compared to land-based sports. Mixed teams are common in UWH and size is not really an advantage when agility, speed and the ability to play well in a team are the best attributes of a good Underwater Hockey player.
