Underwater rugby is a contact team sport played in the diving well of a swimming pool. The goal is to place a ball into a basket at the bottom of the pool. The game demands a combination of good swimming skills, endurance, strength, spatial awareness and exceptional teamwork.
The sport is played at a wide range of levels, from social clubs, to high-level teams that participate at international events. The San Francisco Bay Area has a mixed team, aged 22-50, that plays twice a week and participates in the North American League.
This beginners program is for anyone who may be interested in learning how to play the sport and join our club. The cost of the program includes: six sessions of pool time, insurance, and equipment rental, as well as a certificate and a t-shirt! The course will be held on Monday evenings from 7:45 PM to 9:30 PM at MLK Pool in San Francisco.
