2011 Tournament

The San Francisco Sea Lions Underwater Hockey Club announces…

The 4th Annual San Francisco Regional Tournament

to be held on Saturday February 26 at the City College pool in San Francisco.


This will be a potluck event and players of all experience and skill levels are encouraged to attend. This event is especially meant to give players with NO tournament experience the opportunity to play a whole day of high level games with outstanding teammates. You're having fun at practice, now is your chance to taste competitive hockey

Even potluck teams will be created by a random system that accounts for player skill levels. Skill levels will be assigned before the draw based on your self-rating and input from fellow players. Please rate your skill level on the registration site. Teams will be announced when you arrive at the pool on Saturday morning.

Games played at City College Swimming Pool, Ocean Ave and Howth St, San Francisco, CA 94112. This is the same pool and wall setup as last year. It has two flat courts 7 feet deep. The bottom is very slightly smoother than King. Renting it is over $200/hr but we think it is worth the cost. Come and enjoy it!

Driving: The pool is conveniently located adjacent to I-280, about 1h from San Jose and 30 minutes from Oakland.
Transit: Balboa Park BART station is a 2 minute walk from the pool.
Biking: There is a big bike rack at the front door of the pool. Bike directions available at maps.google.com.
