The Northfield Public Schools Community Services Division is out with their Winter/Spring 2012 brochure (PDF).
I’m thrilled to see that they’re offering an Adult Broomball League. I played on broomball teams in college at St. Thomas, in Minneapolis City Rec leagues for a few years, and then just occasional pickup games after we moved to Northfield in 1974.
The new broomball league games will be played on Thursday nights, 9:45PM -11:45PM at the Northfield Ice Arena beginning Jan. 5 and going through Feb. 2. Cost: $ 340.00
I’m not yet sure how the Northfield format will work, as the description says "Games will begin at 10:30 p.m." What happens the previous 45 minutes? How many players on a team? How many players on the ice at time? Will there be multiple games on the ice simultaneously? I’ll find out. In the meantime, read more about broomball on the USA Broomball web site.
Are you interested in forming a team? I’m willing to put one together.
Or do you have a team already but need more players? I’m a candidate. Attach a comment here or contact me.
I went to get my skates sharpened this morning at the Northfield Ice Arena and discovered that the Northfield Hockey Association is hosting the Jesse James Showdown Peewee A Hockey Tournament this weekend. (Peewee boys, ages 11–12.) Teams from Northfield, Faribault, St. Paul Como, Red Wing, Orono, Fremont NE, Austin, and Tartan are participating.
