Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Not only is underwater hockey a real thing, Los Angeles is hosting the 2011 U.S. Nationals this weekend. The main pool at the Santa Clarita Aquatic Center is a 50 meter by 25 yards 7 feet deep, sports "crystal clear visibility" and will be used for only underwater hockey purposes the entire weekend. There will be 2 playing areas, and a central warm-up area with practice goals.

Today's "Ocotpush" tournament wraps up at 6:00 p.m. but will resume at 8:00 a.m. Sunday morning followed by a dinnertime awards banquet and something called Camporama on Monday.

Thanks for the splashy tip from reader 'Canadia.' Get back to us on this one.
