Helena Ice Arena
Helena Ice Arena is proud to add BroomBall to the many activities at our rink.
Broomball is a winter sport played in ice arenas and community parks
throughout the country. It is a game very similar to hockey in its
formation and rules, but also incorporates some soccer strategies. The
game is played on a hockey rink with two teams consisting of six players
on each side (a goalie, two defensemen and three forwards). Similar to
hockey and soccer, the object of the game is to score more goals than
the opposing team. A player uses a stick (a shaft with a molded
broom-shaped head) to maneuver a six-inch diameter ball up and down the
ice. Instead of skates, players wear spongy-soled shoes to gain traction
when running on the slippery surface.
Games will be 20 minutes long on half ice. Three games will be played switching between teams each session. A referee will be provided for each session. USA Broomball rules will be used and can be found here.
A helmet is required, bike helmets are acceptable but a hockey helmet is encouraged.
Brooms and balls are provided at no cost.
