If you’re on the lookout a new sport, look no further! I’ve been playing this sport since 2003 and I’m still hooked!

If you think triathlon is extreme, wait till you try Underwater Hockey ;)

Here’s a sample! A video plug that we made for the Asian Underwater Hockey Championships.

*** F.A.Q.! (Frequently Asked Questions)

I suck at swimming! Do I need to know how to swim to be able to play underwater hockey?

No. If you have at least seen or been in a swimming pool before, you’re good!

Is Underwater Hockey a team sport?

Yep! Two opposing teams with 6 players per team.

I have my own mask and snorkel, can I use them?

Absolutely!

I also have my own pair of fins, can I use it?

It depends. Underwater hockey requires full-foot fins. Open-heeled fins is not allowed for a number of reasons foremost of all is for safety.

Is there an age pre-requisite?

Yes. Participant must be at least 18 years old. (If you don’t meet the age requirement, we have other events which caters to younger participants)
