Ever had the urge to run around on ice, chasing a ball and knowing that there’s a decent chance that at any unexpected moment you could slip and come crashing to the ground? Unbelievable as it may sound, this activity is incredibly fun and wildly popular. The spectacular sport of broomball- think hockey without skates- highlights an amazing blend of balance, agility, courage, enthusiasm and camaraderie. Six Pack Sports has a great deal of pride in its broomball league, which enjoyed six great winters in Boulder followed by four great winters in Louisville- where we’ll return for the 2018-2019 season as well. The WinterSkate rink in Louisville is the ideal setting for broomball with a gorgeous outdoor rink in downtown Louisville that is perfectly sized for the sport. Though indoor broomball can certainly be fun, we strongly prefer the outdoor variety, which offers fresh air, a pond hockey feel and the chance to play in the snow! Six Pack Broomball is coed, five a side on the ice (including goalie) with rotations on the fly (unlimited roster size). A ref officiates each game, with the 3 S’s of broomball first and foremost: Safety, Sportsmanship & Safety. To get a taste of the fun of Six Pack Broomball, check out the Highlight Videos from past seasons! We run three leagues: a “Varsity” league on Mon nights, a “JV” league on Tues nights and a “Freshmen” league on Wed nights. All 3 leagues always fill up very quickly, so it’s wise to hop on board once registration opens. Registration for the 2018-2019 season will open in late Oct. Get pysched for another wonderful season on the ice!
