Remember floor hockey from gym class? Introducing a colder version

If you haven’t heard of broomball before, you’re missing out! It’s basically floor hockey on ice. Every player has a "broom" (it's really a stick) and you try to hit a ball into a goal.

 

Format

  • Teams consist of six players on the ice - at least two must be female
  • Six game regular season followed by playoffs
  • MSSC provides brooms, balls, goalie helmets, goals, and a referee
  • Download the rulebook in the grey menu bar toward the top of the page for full details on the format and rules

 

League Capacity

 

The league typically has a capacity of nine teams and always sells out well in advance of any posted registration deadlines. Some years the arena has less time available and we are capped at seven teams. Sign up early if you want to play. The Fall 2022 season sold out in two days.

 

Registration deadline: Generally one week prior to the start date (if not already sold out).

 

Individual Sign Up Information

 

  • Men: We typically are not able to place many males who register as Individuals in co-ed leagues because most teams are not looking for additional males. It does happen from time to time though, so it doesn't hurt to register
  • Ladies: If you want to be placed on a team, it's best to sign up on your own and NOT request to be placed with a male, as there is a much smaller chance a team will pick you up if you want to play with a guy.
  • Please note that you will not be contacted unless we are able to get you on a team.

 

Dates and Location

  • Games will be played on Sunday evenings at Madison Ice Arena (725 Forward Drive). We use the studio rink, which looks just like a regular hockey rink, except smaller, so it's the perfect size for broomball. We also have use of locker rooms for the games.
  • The Fall season typically starts in early November. The Winter season typically starts in mid-January

 

Scheduling

Since it's asked all the time: The schedule is posted a few days after registration closes. This league plays on Sunday nights, and you should be available for any time slot.

 

Equipment

  • Broomball requires more equipment than many other sports. MSSC supplies the basics mentioned above in the "Format" section. Players are encouraged to purchase additional equipment, such as broomball shoes, pads, mouth guards, and helmets from sites like Broomball.com, Midwest Broomball, or Amazon.com. These items are optional but will enhance the playing experience and help prevent injuries.
