Dust off your shoes (that’s right, you won’t need skates!) and join us for Casper’s first ever Broomball League! Watch teams compete at 6:00 pm then try it out for yourself from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.

“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. 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.” -USA Broomball
