Where and When

Show up time is 30 minutes before the listed time. The listed times are when we start the water scrimmage or practice with full gear. If you haven't played before, arrive early, so we can help you get geared up and teach you the basic rules and skills.

On Fridays, we run our Children's Underwater Hockey program.


Adult Practices at King Pool

MLK Pool, 5701 3rd St, SF CA
(At Carroll Ave, near Candlestick Park)

If driving, do not leave anything of value in your vehicle! Numerous car break-ins have occurred at this location.
Consider using public transportation instead: the T streetcar line stops right in front of the pool.


Monday tends to be our fastest game, but new players are welcome. People with some snorkeling skills, or lots of swimming experience, can jump right in. Sometimes we have enough people to have separate beginner and advanced games.

How Much Does It Cost?

Please pay online. We do not handle cash.

Youth Team Practices

See Youth Team. Same location: MLK Pool.

Friday 6:30-8:30pm

This program is a joint collaboration between San Francisco Sea Lions and SF Recreation and Parks.
  • We welcome all children between 9 and 14 years old, provided they are able to swim 4 x 25 yards without stopping (form and style don't matter) and tread water for 1 minute.
  • Children need to be at poolside at 6:30pm. They are in the water until 8:30pm. Parents must pick them up immediately afterwards.
  • Parents do not need to stay during practice. Bleacher seats are available for those who do.
  • We provide equipment to beginner players!
  • Players that have been in the program for more than 6 months are expected to buy their own gear. See Gear for Children for advice on what to buy.
  • The program is currently free, a small fee will be implemented soon.
  • Every coach has had their background approved for working with children by the city R&P department.
