Islington Octopush Club (ISOC) (Reviewed 03/09/16)
Welcome to ISOC (Islington Octopush Club)
We are always happy to see new people of any skill level: if you can swim we can teach you to snorkel if you can snorkel we can teach you to play Underwater Hockey and enjoy it.
ISOC training sessions are Thursday nights 21.00-22.00 Mile End Pool.
All players are required to adhere to the ISOC 'code of conduct' and be either member of the BOA or covered under the BOA 'Free UWH Trial' scheme.
Check out details on our new website! - https://islingtonuwh.github.io
We normally have 2 - 3 novice players undergoing training and 15 to 20 players ranging from beginners to International and ex-International players
- If you have your kit, you can just let us know when you'll turn up.
- If you need the kit, let us know, the club has some loan kit.
New players (on hold because of COVID):
- If you can swim, we can teach you to snorkel!
- If you can snorkel, we can quickly teach you to play Octopush
Contact Nia (Membership Officer) firstname.lastname@example.org
We can supply all the equipment you need (mask, fins, gloves, hat and snorkel) for those who just want to have a go or have yet to make up their minds. You do HAVE to bring your own swimming gear and towel.
We play for an hour every Thursday night at Mile End Pool, so be on the poolside on time.
Islington Octopush (Underwater Hockey) Club started out over 40 years ago as a BSAC (British Sub-Aqua Club) Octopush team. We are now independent members of the British Octopush Association (BOA), but still, have links with several diving clubs and many of our players continue to dive.
