South African Underwater Hockey Federation

Player Spotlight – Liam Elferink

Gauteng homeboy, Liam Elferink started playing underwater hockey at the age of 12 and plays for Normal Air Club (NUC).  He is a mid-centre who acknowledges is best achievement (prior to Wolds 2019) was receiving the Player of the Tournament at Junior Nationals 3 years in a row.  His proudest moment in UWH was the announcement of the RSA Squad for Worlds 2019 and his Captaincy Role.

Liam not only has had success in the pool with underwater hockey, but excels at rugby and has often had to make some tough choices to combine both sports.

With the achievement of being the highest goal scorer at Worlds this year – 26 goals in total – I am sure you will agree, this might just be his new best achievement.

Well done Liam and congrats
