A good way to start is to have three players designated as 'forwards' and three as 'backs'. As in basketball, a goalkeeper is not necessary. The puck is pushed along the pool bottom with the side of the stick and a pass is accomplished by a combined motion of pushing, swinging the lower arm from the elbow, and flicking the stick with the wrist.

 A successful offensive play is to dive down, receive a pass from a team mate and complete a pass to another team mate. Passing advances the puck faster than swimming or pushing it. A successful defensive play is to steal the puck from an opponent and complete a pass to a team mate. It is very important to remember that you may take the puck away from an opponent, but you may not take an opponent away from the puck.
