Door County Underwater Hockey Gaining Popularity



Door County's underwater hockey team, the Sturgeons, in combination with players from the Green Bay area, sent three teams to compete at the 4 on 4 underwater hockey tournament in Milwaukee this past weekend. The women's team consisted of players: Molly Banks, Gale Chier, Amy Ensign, Trisha Filar, and Maddy Rive. The B division team included: Terry Chier, Amy Ensign, Trisha Filar, David Foulds, and Adam Gardner. The A division team included coach Kendall Banks, Gui Besson, Paul Filar, Steve Kars, Robert Vernon, and Albert Weber. While the women's and B division team did not place at this competition, the high level A division team took second place in the tournament, losing only to Cincinnati. All teams faced opponents from across the country, including players and teams from Chicago, Minnesota, California, Michigan, Florida, and Colorado.

The four-on-four is a challenging and unique tournament style, as underwater hockey games are traditionally played six-on-six, with up to four extra players available for substitutions. In this game, not only were there less players in the water to cover the court, but there were also only two players available for substitution (only one in the women's and b divisions). This arrangement called for a higher level of athleticism and skill, along with creating a different strategy of play. The underwater hockey team meets on Friday nights at the Sturgeon Bay YMCA and is welcoming new members of all ages!
