We are a mixed underwater hockey team founded in 2014 and we call ourselves the Stingrays.
Octopush (or underwater hockey) is a limited-contact sport in which two teams compete to manoeuvre a puck across the bottom of a swimming pool into the opposing team's goal.
Each player is equipped with a pair of fins, a mask, snorkel, mouth guard, hat, glove and stick.
1 - Snorkel with mouthguard
2 - Hat (like waterpolo hats)
3 - Mask
4 - Fins
5 - Underwater Hockey Stick
6 - The Puck
7 - Glove

However, you are welcome to purchase and play with your own equipment if you wish. Please bear in mind that there are regulations surrounding the equipment that can be used, so check with a member of the exec before purchasing any equipment to ensure that you are buying the right things.
