Lake, in east Gainesville. Whether you
are an experienced rower or looking to

Surfing is all about gathering students
together to do anything fun and surfing
related. The club consists of a competition
team that surfs in regional events against
other collegiate surfing teams. Anyone
who is interested in competing is highly
encouraged to join the club. The club
also provides a way for like minded
students (surfers) to find rides to the beach,

accomplished surfer to join the club.


UNDERWATER
HOCKEY
Underwater Hockey is a non-contact
competitive sport played on the bottom
of a pool while wearing a mask, snorkel
and fins. A plastic coated puck is pushed
and shot between players with a short
stick (12 inches) as teams attempt to
advance the puck into goals located at
both ends of the pool. The club is open
to both males and females and no
experience is necessary. Two of the
club's own players were selected for
the U.S. National Team!

never sailed before.

men's and women's teams who compete

Water Polo can be described as a fast-
paced combination of hockey, soccer
and competitive swimming. It is both
challenging and fun!
