Rochdale Underwater Hockey Club

New Players wanted for 2017

Rochdale Underwater Girls invite new members

The girls of Rochdale Underwater Hockey Club are looking for more members to join them in trying out this exciting and challenging sport

Underwater hockey is also known as Octopush and is a supreme aerobic game. 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, at the opposite end of a 25 metre pool.

Team member Tiegan Alexander said:” I’ve been playing for 4 years and It’s a great non contact competitive sport but you do bump into other players. It’s good for swimmers who are tired of just swimming up and down the pool and you can learn a lot of advanced techniques.  And boys can play too!

Coach Helen Hyde said “ We have a thriving team with opportunities for more members to join and we provide all the equipment for new starters. If you enjoy swimming and want to try something very different, give us a call on Rochdale 373967 or pop in to see us training at Oulder Hill Leisure Centre on Thursday nights at 7:30pm.
