Why broomball is fun
If you’ve ever wanted to play hockey, but never had the opportunity, broomball is a good substitute. Similar rules and game play, but much more accessible than ice hockey. If you can run, you can play – no skates needed.
Capitol Broomball is a competitive, yet collegial league. Lots of coaching, lots of encouragement. Teams are reshuffled for every season, so you get to meet lots of people. Currently, our age range is from early 20s to late 50s, so don’t feel like your time may have passed. The sprinting gets you in better shape by the third game.
If I can be a goal a game player, think about about how well you can play.
