Format

The Winter 2024 Session will follow a team-based registration format. Players will register as part of an existing team, or may register as an individual who needs to be placed on an existing team. Games will consist of 2×20-minute running time periods. There will be a total of 7 regular session games plus 1 championship / consolation game. Teams must have at least 9 runners and 1 designated goalie to register. Player substitutions will not be allowed during the season. This is a co-ed league, and teams must have at least one woman on the ice at all times. For each game, each team must have a minimum of 5 runners plus a goalie (6 players total), and at least one of those players must be a woman. Failure to meet these requirements will result in the team forfeiting the game. If both teams fail to meet the requirements then the game shall be declared a draw.

Requirements

Players are generally expected to provide their own equipment for each session. There may be a limited number of broomball sticks and broomball shoes available that may be provided to new players upon request. All participants will be required to provide their own hockey helmet with face mask, which must be worn at all times while on the ice. New players will be required to purchase a reversible Detroit Broomball jersey.

Additional recommended equipment to bring includes:

  • Kneepads and shin pads OR hockey leg pads
  • Elbow pads
  • Hockey gloves OR utility gloves or similar

Broomball is a sport that involves some risk. As such all participants will be required to sign a waiver.
