Door County Sturgeons Win Underwater Hockey Tournament



Underwater hockey is gaining popularity in Door County as the Door County Sturgeons won a regional tournament this past weekend. Playing at the Walter Schroeder Aquatic Center in Brown Deer, coach/player Kendall Banks, Brenden Ewers, Terry Chier, David Foulds, and Paul Filar won the Sport Court 4 tournament.

After a slow starting Saturday, the Sturgeons picked it up on Sunday. Each of the team members had different points to work on such as strike angle, keeping low on curls, maintaining position, defensive reads, breathing strategies, etc. 

In the finals, Door County beat Michigan State University in a rematch of the finals from the Midwest Championships in January.  The four-on-four was a challenging and unique tournament style, as underwater hockey games are traditionally played six-on-six.

In this game, not only were there less players in the water to cover the court, but there was also only one player available for substitution.  This arrangement called for a higher level of athleticism and skill, along with creating a different strategy of play.  

The underwater hockey team is looking for new participants and invite you to join them on Friday nights at 6:30pm at the Sturgeon Bay YMCA. Play is open to everyone regardless of age.
