BARANOF PARK ICE RINK

For more information on the following ice rink programs and activities, contact ice rink manager Courtney Webster at 481-8671.

Broomball is a game similar to ice hockey in which the players, not wearing skates, use broomsticks instead of hockey sticks to shoot a small, soft volleyball-size ball into the opponent’s goal. For those who don’t know how to skate and would like to experience the ice, broomball is your sport. Broomball is a popular college intramural sport, it’s a great cardiovascular exercise, and it’s fun. Open to all ages and great for families. Broomball will be held Fridays 6 to 7 p.m. Broomsticks will be provided.

Novice coed hockey will be held Saturdays 3:30 to 6 p.m. This time is for players who are interested in trying hockey in a beginner setting.
