The Iceplex Broomball League (The IBL) announced plans today to host two free open house events, providing local residents an opportunity to learn the skills and rules of broomball at no cost.
The events take place at Bill Gray's Regional Iceplex, one on December 29th from 1:00pm to 2:00pm, and onw January 6th from 8:00pm to 8:50pm.
These open house events are for coed adults (18+) and equipment is provided. Participants are encouraged to pre-register on the Iceplex website, to dress warm and to bring a helmet (hockey, lacrosse, bicycle, etc.) as limited helmets will be available.
Broomball is a cross between ice hockey and soccer, is played on ice (with shoes) and requires no experience to get started. Players use a broom shaped stick, and instead of a hockey puck, the game is played with a large ball.
