DESCRIPTION

Broomball is a fun and exciting sport that is very similar to hockey. It is played during the winter months at hockey arenas all over the world. The biggest difference between broomball and hockey is the footwear, instead of skates you wear broomball shoes, which have a rubberized sponge sole that allows you to have grip on ice. Another big difference is instead of a puck you use an orange ball, which is the size of a #7 soccer ball. Also, the sticks are more like a lacrosse stick but instead of a net on the end you have a rubberized paddle. The rules are almost exactly like hockey with a few exceptions, one being the offsides rule, in broomball the offsides line is the RED line. There are a few different divisions, they include Juniors, Mixed, Elite Women's, Elite Men's and Masters. There is something for everyone! Come try this exciting sport!
At each session at All Sport One City we will cover basic rules; how to run on ice, the different passes and shots with a little scrimmage at the end for fun.
