Spring 2013 SBMA Broomball
How to Dress for Recreational Broomball
Find out what equipment the league will provide at the rink.In most leagues, you bring you own clothes, padding and gloves, but a jersey, helmet and “broom” are provided for you.
Start with your under-layer.Women should wear a sports bra, as it is a high impact sport. Men use a cup or jockstrap.
Pull on a shirt and pants.Wear a short or long-sleeved T-shirt with a player number on the back. If your team does not have T-shirts with numbers, your league may provide jerseys for you. Also, wear sweatpants or track pants. Some broomball players prefer to wear hockey shorts instead of pants to protect hips when falling.
Slip your shoes on and lace them up.There are specialty shoes for broomball, but most recreational leagues do not allow them. Hiking boots are also commonly banned. Regular tennis shoes will work just fine. In order to improve traction on the ice, make sure the bottoms of the shoes have good tread. Tie the laces in a double knot to make sure they stay tied.
At the Rink
Put on your padding.Start with your leg guards; hockey style knee guards are the best protection for the legs because they protect the knee and shin. Next, pull on elbow pads. Finally, you may want to use rollerblading wrist guards.
Find a helmet of appropriate size.It should be snug on your head, so when you turn side to side it doesn't move. But, it shouldn’t be so tight as to cause a headache. Helmets are required for all players in all leagues. If you are having trouble with your helmet, ask a teammate for help.
Pull on your water-proof gloves.Gloves keep your hands warm and provide some protection when falling.

- Always bring duct tape; you never know when a pad will need adjustment.
- You will fall, so slide around on the ice before the game starts to get used to your pads.
- If you are a goaltender, you should also wear chest and shoulder padding. You are the only player that is allowed to use a baseball glove to catch the ball.
- If you don’t have access to hockey knee guards, knee pads from rollerblading or volleyball will also work. Soccer shin guards can be helpful if only wearing kneepads. If none of these options are available, fold up a towel and tape it to your knees.
- While ice rinks tend to be cool, you will work up a sweat playing, so do not wear too many layers
- Even with proper protection, guards, pads, helmet, etc. you can still get hurt. Running into boards, falling on ice, running into people all have risks.
- Bruising and pulled muscles are the most common injuries, though broken bones happen on occasion.
- Falling on the ice is the most common cause of injuries, primarily bruising. However, you can also be hurt by getting kicked by another player or hit with a stick.
