Water Skyball (WSB) is a non-contact sport meaning that touching other players is strictly forbidden and it entails penalty. This gives great emphasis to tactics, skill, and intelligence. Due to these, the risk of injury is minimal. In the midfield you can touch, pass, catch, and throw the ball with only one hand. This requires a lot of exercise and skill.

WSB is also unique by its unusual goal. Its goal-in-goal design makes the game even more exciting and interesting.
