Broomball

Our next schedule and registration information will be posted here once we have set the dates.


Broomball is a winter sport being offered in our Hockey Facility after our Learn to Skate/Play Hockey program, for children ages 10-13. It is a game very similar to hockey in its formation and rules, but also incorporates some soccer strategies. The game is played on the ice with two teams consisting of six players on each side (a goalie, two defensemen and three forwards). Similar to hockey and soccer, the object of the game is to score more goals than the opposing team. A player uses a stick (a shaft with a molded broom-shaped head) to maneuver a six-inch diameter ball up and down the ice. Instead of skates, players wear sneakers to gain traction when running on the slippery surface.
