Where to play in Colorado

There are three UWH clubs in Colorado as of 2015, based in Lakewood, Thornton, and Fort Collins Practice details for the clubs are listed below:

Lakewood practices are held at the Carmody Recreation Center at 2200 S (Old) Kipling St. in Lakewood, CO. Carmody Map

WHEN?
Sunday afternoons from 4:00 to 5:30 and Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30. New players are encouraged to show up 15 minutes early. To inquire about any given Practice, send us an Email or check the Meetup page. Known cancellations may also be indicated here.

WHO?
Practices are open to men and women of all ages. Beginners are always welcome. Practices usually consist of scrimmage and instructional sessions, so there's something for everyone.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
If you are new to the sport, you're welcome to come a few times and try it for free. After that, you may either pay on a per-practice or per-quarter basis. For detailed payment information for Lakewood practices, please speak with Chris Debrunner, the Lakewood club Treasurer (you can catch him at practice most of the time).

WHAT DO I BRING?
If you have snorkeling gear (mask, fins and snorkel) that you'd like to use, feel free to bring it, but we also have equipment for you to borrow, so all you really need is a swimsuit.

Thornton

Thornton practices are held at the Veteran's Memorial Aquatic Center (VMAC) located at 5310 E. 136th Ave., Thornton. Click on the link below for a map:

ANYTHING ELSE?
Yes! The VMAC pool just (October, 2015) got an awesome underwater hockey upgrade. The pool now has two custom-made underwater hockey courts installed, with a low-friction surface for the puck to slide on, folding walls all the way around each court, and built-in goals. Come check it out!
