What is Underwater Hockey? It is a 3 dimensional team sport. It is played below the surface of the water in a swimming pool by two teams of 10 players, 6 in the water and 4 substitutes. Each player is wearing basic underwater equipment (i.e. fins, mask, cap with ear protection and snorkel. The object of the game is to push or pass a weighted puck along the bottom of the pool by using an underwater hockey stick, into the opposing team’s goal.
