Underwater hockey is a non-contact sport (just like basketball and netball) and is refereed by 3 in water referees and 1 out of water referee.

If a team commits a foul the opposing team receives an advantage puck and the culprit could be sent to the sin bin for a number of minutes.

When a referee sees a foul, they can either play advantage or signal the out-of-water referee who triggers a buzzer to stop the game.

Common fouls include:

- breaking - starting before the buzzer signals the start of play

- obstruction - blocking an opposing player from playing the puck

- gloving - moving the puck with something other then your stick

- stick infringement - making contact with an opposition players stick before/instead of the puck

- dangerous flick - flicking the puck into, or dangerously close to, a players head
