What is Broomball?
Broomball strategy and positioning have much in common with ice hockey, but with reduced mobility and a high premium on passing and movement off the ball. And as no skating skills are required, it’s a great game for ice novices!
Broomball at the Nederland Rink
We typically cross-ice at the Nederland Rink — that’s still 100 feet — with as many as 5 on 5 with goalies. Some sort of helmet is required, whether it be hockey, skiing, bike or motorcycle, and kneepads of any flavor are recommended. The Rink will supply the stick and balls. If the ice is sketchy for skating, it’s probably still good for broomball, so come on out!
Please bring $3 in addition to any regular ice fees to contribute to the broomball equipment fund. Thanks!
