Event Details

If you can swing a stick and hit a ball YOU can play Broomball!

Snag one of the limited spots at the bottom of this page. There are two registration options: a Broomball Team or Broomball Individual(s) ticket. Broomball teams are made up of six players, so if you have six people rounded up already pick the Team Ticket and be sure to include player names when prompted in the checkout process. If you want to sign up as an individual or with a friend, select the Broomball (one to two players) ticket and you will be placed on a team prior to February 3. Registration prices will increase after Jan. 1, 2018, if spots still remain.

The tournament will run from 11 a.m. until approximately 1 p.m. on the Penn Meadows Park ice rink. The game will consist of two fifteen-minute periods of running time with one minute between periods, no time outs. Teams shall switch ends at the end of the first period. Games will start at 11 a.m., 11:45 a.m., and 12:30 p.m. A total of six teams will participate in the tournament, each only playing once against one opponent. Game times will be randomly assigned prior to gameday. The winner of the tournament will be the team with the most number of goals. If teams are tied, a shootout will take place.

Most equipment will be provided (pads, balls, sticks) but players must wear clean athletic shoes, gloves and a bike helmet. Participants will be asked to arrive by 10:30 a.m. for rules and equipment instruction. 

What is Broomball?
Broomball is a game very much like hockey. Most hockey rules apply except that the game is played with a regulation broomball stick (which is shaped like a broom) and a regulation broomball (which is a heavy plastic ball, slightly bigger than a softball). In a game of broomball there are two teams, each consisting of six players: a goaltender and five others. The object of the game is to score more goals than the opponent. Goals are scored by hitting the ball into the opponent’s net using the broom.

Rules of Play

  • Play begins with a face-off at center ice with players in their defensive zone. A face-off at center ice also occurs after a goal is scored and at the beginning of each period. Any face-off requires all players not facing off to be a least six feet from the face-off spot.
  • There is absolutely NO CHECKING. The penalty is an ejection and a five minute major penalty.
  • The ball must be passed from player to player using the stick. There is no kicking or sliding. If kicked, an indirect shot will be awarded to an opponent at spot of infraction.
  • To score, ball must be hit with a broomball stick into the goal. No goal for a ball diverted into the goal by an offensive player’s foot. The entire ball must cross the goal line.
  • Players may not catch the ball. They may knock it down with their hand, but if this occurs, they must be the first to play it with their broom before it touches another team member. No hand passes.
  • A broom may never be swung above waist height. This results in a minor violations – the ball being awarded to the opponent at the spot of the infraction for an indirect shot.
  • A ball knocked out of play will be put back in play with a face-off at the nearest spot where the ball was last touched by a player.
  • Players must play the ball, and not the body, at all times.
  • After each penalty, a face-off will result at the face-off circle nearest the spot of the penalty. Face-offs will be made at the center circle when the penalty occurred in the attaching area of the player/team being penalized.
