ABOUT BROOMBALL:
These are four of the most popular theories on how broomball got started:

  • Street car drivers began the game playing at hitting a small ball about the ice in winter with straw brooms during their lunch breaks.

  • Some soccer players started the game after watching a small boy swatting a ball with a toy broom.

  • Non-skaters started broomball as a means to participate in the rough and tumble world of ice hockey.

  • Broomball was started by women, shut out of the male dominated and controlled sport of ice hockey.


Early broomball equipment consisted of corn brooms, rubber boots, and a soccer ball. The first recorded game is rumored to have been played in Saskatchewan, Canada in 1909.
