Rules:
  • All players are required to sign a waiver to participate. These will be emailed to Team Captains and available at Check-In.
  • Like ice hockey, Broomball allows six players per team on the ice at one time with one player designated as a goalie.
  • Substitutions are allowed on the fly.  A goalie may be substituted only during a stoppage in play.
  • Players may not use their hands or feet to kick/pass the ball.
  • The goalie is the only person allowed to use their hand to stop or pass the ball. Goalies may only play the ball in their protected area, i.e. ‘the crease in front of their net’.
  • Body checking is not allowed.
  • Players may not leave their feet to slide into a player to intentionally, or unintentionally, knock down a player.
  • All players must be onside during face-offs.
  • High-sticking is not allowed. A ball above the waist may not be played or attempted to be played by the broom. Brooms must always stay on the ice or below knee-level.
  • For the safety of all involved, tripping, checking, slashing, or roughing will be tolerated. NPBL personnel reserve the right to eject players at their discretion.
  • Have fun! Be safe!
