The photo below is very sad. It is of a underwater hockey puck sitting all alone at the bottom of the pool. UWH pucks live to be pushed. If you look real close you can see little puck tears leaking out from his sliders. Please help me make this puck a happy puck. Show up tonight for practice at 7:15pm and you will bring great joy to this poor little puck’s lonely life. If not you, then who?
Okay, I have confirmed a slot with the YMCA Aquatic center for a tournament on September 6th and 7th. We need to make some decisions pretty quickly. 1. What type of tournament should it be? Potluck I assume. 2.What is the price we are going to charge. We will need to give the YMCA $50 per player so keep that in mind when developing the price. 3. I will be happy to host another BBQ at my house for the Saturday night social. 4. I would recommend getting pre-orders for T-shirts and only ordering the amount and sizes we need.
Finally, someone will need to contact USA UWH and see if we can get a sanction for that date before we get to far along in the planning. We need a planning committee, anyone that wishes to help out please give a shout out.
A great practice wednesday night. Full teams with subs and everyone was playing great. Hope to see everyone out on Friday night. It is a great way to start memorial day weekend. See everyone underwater on Friday.
We had a great scrimmage on Wednesday, but the numbers were a bit thin. Hopefully we can get a nice crew out for tonight. We have not seen some of our regulars for awhile, so just a reminder we are still playing and want to see you all back underwater. I not going to be calling out any names yet, but if that’s what it takes we might have to start some trash talk.
BTW we had one UWH teammate help out as a zombie for our commercial we filmed for the Zombie Survival Store – view the commercial here. See if you can pick her out from the horde! Four of the zombie cause actors are UWH players and the producer of the segment Jerry Rose has also played with us. I will be needing more zombies this summer for another film. If you are interested please sign up for email updates for the Zombie Cause blog as we will be posting zombie casting calls there.
Many thanks to all the University of Florida underwater hockey players that came to the YMCA Aquatic Center and hosted an underwater hockey clinic. To sum it up it was a great clinic. I hope everyone shows up Wednesday for practice so we can work on some of the skills learned.
Just a reminder, next week (Wed March 19th and Friday 21st) we will not be having practice at the YMCA Aquatic Center. The pool is shut down for Jr. Nationals. Practice will be at Lucky’s House at 7PM on both Wed and Fri. All the cool people will be there.
Everyone needs to show up for practice this Wednesday and Friday (March 12 and 14th) as next week we are shut out of the YMCA Aquatic Center due to the Junior Nationals Swim meet. We should have the deep pool both Wednesday and Friday this week (it may be the far end near the dive well) so lets take advantage of it. Next week (March 19 and 23rd) I will host practice at my house (Lucky’s) for those that wish to attend on Wed and Friday. Map to Lucky’s
Great time at the Championships of the Universe in Key Largo! There were 12 teams in the pot luck. Ariel, Dave, Melanie, Sam, Donna, and Lucky represented Orlando well. We learned a lot and will bring back ideas to share to the team. See everyone underwater Wednesday.
We have six folks going down to Key Largo for the Championships of the Universe so practice may be a bit thin for friday night, but there will be people there. The Wildcat water polo tournament will be going on Friday evening so the Underwater hockey will be in the teaching pool so everyone should meet there.
If you are going to the Championships of the Universe make sure you are a registered tournament player with USA Underwater Hockey. If you are not they will charge an extra fee at the tournament more that what it costs to register with USA UWH. The link is here.
Good luck to all our players going to the tournament!
We had a good practice followed by pizza and UWH videos. Sam Sr. came and brought everyone UWH magnets. We look forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday.
If you did not see the Channel 2 video it is now linked in the blog sidebar or you can click here.
The how to do a Flick video now has over 2000 views . . . wow!
Due to the Sunshine State Swimming College Conference Championships being held at the YMCA Aquatic Center we are doing a special practice session at Lucky Meisenheimer’s house on Friday at 7PM. We will be playing underwater hockey, and afterwards we can order some pizza and watch some UWH vids on youtube (if you want). Lucky has some loaner gear but try to bring as much gear as you can. The playing pool is 82 degrees nice . . .
