Broomball is back and promises to be better than ever. During last year's winter term, the Broomball tournament was an exciting, special, and fun event available for a limited time. The 2021 winner of the tournament was Mr. Cahn's team (#1 Seed). Mr. Van Dam's team ($500Boyz) was the runner-up. 

The purpose of Broomball is to provide more opportunities for having fun and enjoying the outdoor winter weather, as well as adding a little bit of excitement and competition to this unprecedented season. Teams get very competitive in Broomball tournaments, making the games more enjoyable. Each team fields six players, including a goalie. Each tournament game consists of two 10 minutes halves with a 3-minute break in between. A 3-minute overtime (OT) golden goal period is given if the game is tied at the end of the second period. Unless the game is the playoffs, it will end in a tie after OT. 

This year’s broomball tournament started on January 13, 2022, and will run until February 20. The tournament consists of two parts: pool play and the championship tournament. Pool Play will take place before a long weekend, with the top 8 teams advancing to the tournament play on 02.17.2022-02.20.2022.
