Broomball never stops! Sure, summer is coming but Capitol Broomball keeps rolling like the proverbial big wheel. Or a broomball on a clear out of the defensive end on a penalty kill.

Make Tuesday something to look forward to by registering for the Summer 2023 season. The schedule starts June 13 at Tucker Road Ice Rink, Fort Washington, Md.

The summer season goes through August 15 with bye weeks.

What is broomball?

Broomball is similar to ice hockey, but in special shoes, balls and “brooms” instead of skates, pucks and sticks. Capitol Broomball, also known as District Broomball, is a co-ed league that plays at Tucker Road Ice Rink in Prince George’s County, Md. It’s just a few minutes from Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia, the Capital Beltway and Wilson Bridge.

Capitol Broomball is a competitive, yet collegial league. There is plenty 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 early 60s, so don’t feel like your time may have passed. The sprinting gets you in better shape by the third game.

The league provides sticks, shoes, and helmets are available for new players to borrow. Most regulars own their own equipment, especially helmets. You can always wear a bike helmet or a ski helmet too. A few regulars wear lacrosse helmets.
