Turns

- Under construction (2 June 1998)

Turns are fundamental to playing underwater hockey. They are one of the easiest way to gain and retain possession as they allow the player to shield the puck with the body.

When shielding the puck the turn should be made with the body close to the pool bottom to prevent the opposition reaching under the body.

There are two main types of turn - clockwise and anticlockwise.

Each has a different technique - due to the stick skill to make the turn.
