There is a lot going on at the moment in the world of underwater hockey;

 Junior Nationals

First of all success at the Junior Nationals

Zach Tait and Brandon Marshall played for the Batley Under 18s team and were successful in winning gold medals.

Isaac Rhodes-Dawson played for the Xarifa Under 16s team and was also successful in winning Gold.

Becci Northover and Ethan played for a scratch Under 16s team made up of players from 3 different clubs and came 4th in the Under 16s competition


Next year’s Junior Nationals Championships will be held on July 7Th at Surrey Sports Village in Guildford, It would be good to see more players from Rochdale  taking part in all age groups. Please put the date in your calendars and plan accordingly.

For each Thursday through July I plan to be at the pool, in the café area, at 7:00pm and will run dry training sessions on tactics and positions for 20 minutes before the pool session starts.  If you are interested just turn up and if you have any specific questions please let me know.


World Age Group Championships

Hobart Tasmania

These championships start on the 14th July and Zach Tait and Becci Northover, from our club, will be there representing Great Britain in the Under 19 age group competition.

There is a dedicated Youtube channel and all matches will be streamed live, together with interviews with players and coaches.  You can also watch the matches after the event, (this maybe the preferred option as a lot of games will be very early in the morning, as Hobart is 9 hours ahead of us).
