Broomball is a game similar to ice hockey in which the players, not wearing skates, use broomsticks instead of hockey sticks to shoot a small soft volleyball-size ball into the opponent’s goal. For those who don’t know how to skate and would like to experience the ice, broomball is your sport. Broomball is a popular college intramural sport, it’s a great cardiovascular exercise, and it’s fun. Open to all ages and great for families. Broomball will be held Fridays 6 to 7 p.m. Broomsticks will be provided.

Coed hockey will be Fridays. It will be split into two sessions. The 7:30 to 8:45 p.m. session will be for beginning players.

Novice coed hockey will be held Saturdays 3:30 to 6 p.m. This time is for players who are interested in trying hockey in a beginner setting.

Stick and Puck will be held Monday, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. and Sunday, 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. This is a time for all ages and skill levels to hone their skills. No games allowed. Players can focus on game fundamentals without the pressure of game situations.

There are tot classes for 3- to 5-year-olds, beginner classes, intermediate and advanced. Classes are a half-hour long, once a week, for five weeks in a group setting.
