Rochdale Underwater Hockey Club

Make a splash and improve your fitness

Rochdale Underwater Hockey Club are building on the spirit of the 2012 games by accepting new members for a 5 week physical activity programme starting Thursday 9th April 7:30 to 8:30pm At Oulder Hill Leisure complex..  You don’t have to be an athlete to be active – just willing to try something different.  Have fun learning to play a unique sport. Underwater hockey is an excellent way to stay in shape. The constant swimming will improve your cardio as well as your stamina. You will also strengthen your core muscles, like your abs and back playing this game. It’s great fun and will allow you to play something that is very different.  It is always good to try something new and we guarantee underwater hockey is unlike anything you will ever experience!

How do you play?  Players wear the basic equipment of a mask, snorkel, fins, and water polo hat. They hold a small stick, about the size of a spatula, in a gloved hand. The idea of the game is to use the stick to push the 1.2 kilogramme puck into the opposing team's goal, which consists of a three metre tray at the opposing end of a 25 metre pool.

Taking part in regular physical activity has so many positive benefits from improved well-being to having a healthier body. We all want our children to grow up healthy and with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in life. A big part of being healthy for children is getting the recommended level of physical activity.  When children are active their blood flow increases, improving memory and concentration, which are essential in the classroom, and hormones are released that can improve their mood and reduce anxiety and stress.  Studies show that physical activity not only helps kids stay active and healthy, but it can enhance important skills like concentration and problem solving, which can improve academic performance. You can make sure your children are on the path to an active and healthy life.
