Referee Night & Fast Fours Tomorrow Night

Hi all, a reminder that the regular season games have been postponed for a week due to an ice hockey tournament.  Instead, we are holding a Referee Night at 7.30pm at the IceArena which will run for about an hour. This is for current referees, as it will be an introduction to reffing and discussion and education revolving around some key areas we need to improve. There will also be an outline on what we are trying to do education wise for referees. Also, for those wanting to still play some Broomball we have hired the small ice from 7.30-9.30pm to play some Fast Four Broomball. Please bring $10 cash (pay to Christine on the night) and a dark and light jersey so we can make teams on the night.

Changes to Broomball schedule 30th Jan

Please note that due to the Tigers Ice Hockey Tournament being held at the IceArenA, our normal Broomball games scheduled for the 30th January have been postponed until the following week. At this stage we are hoping to have a fun night of Fast Fours Broomball on the small ice - more details to follow.

BASA Pub Crawl!

BASA is holding a pub crawl on Saturday 3rd February, starting at The Wheatsheaf Hotel at 4:30pm. The Wheaty's annual street party will be taking place the same day so there will be food trucks and plenty of entertainment to begin our evening.

We'll stay at the Wheaty for 2 hrs and then jump on the tram and head into the city. We will continue to update the Facebook event if you want to catch up with us later in the evening.

T-shirt sizes need be collected and finalised by mid this week (10th January). Men's and Women's sizes available. Please let Sally (Assassins) know, message us on the Facebook event or email the committee ASAP.

Latest in from Saxon:
Hi Guys,
Facebook is telling me that a year ago today I was heading off to Canada for the 2016 World Broomball Championships in Regina..  was such an awesome trip...  good times.. take me back...  but that was a year ago.. which means...  only 1 year until the 2018 World Broomball Championships in Minnesota, USA !!!
So it is time for me to start collecting interest:-
If you know you are definitely going then sign up 100%..  if you haven't been to a worlds before... it will be the trip of a lifetime... until your next one !!
If you are thinking of going then you should.. but let me know you are keen and what % likelihood, clearly i'm not going to hold you to it this far out, but will need a definite sign up by April 2018.
Please email me your interest -
What: 2018 World Broomball Championships
When: Tournament 29th Oct - 3rd Nov (Aussie team arrives 24th October - training/bonding)
Where: Blaine, Minnesota, USA
Teams: Men's, Women's, Mixed and Masters + (potentially 2nd men's or mixed)
COMMITMENT: If you commit to go you will definitely be playing. Unfortunately for logistically reasons we can not take conditional nominations. (eg. I'll go if I make the men's 1 team) . Your nomination and commitment is to the Aussie team. Selection is done much later and everything needs to be in place before then. If you nominate to go, you will be on a team and part of the Australian team. Obviously we will look at preferences and place where we can but again your commitment is to the Australian team (and that is all teams.)
The best way to stake your claim for the higher teams is to come to Nationals and perform well there. It is hard for the selection team to place you in a higher team if you aren't there.
Looking forward to your nomination (email me) to join me in the USA.
Costs (rough. based on previous years):
Airfares :- $1500-2500
Accommodation :- (10 Nights $60 to $80 per night twin share) - $600-$800
Registration (Including Banquet) :- $175
Training/Practice Games :- $75ish
Aussie Gear :-
Jerseys - 2 x $70 = $140 (probably want couple extra for swapping)
Pants - $80
Polo's - $45
Hoodie - $60
Souvenirs - $60 (pins, team gifts etc.)
That's the bare min to buy.. there are all sort of other things you can get .. alternate polo's, different hoodies, jackets, beanies, caps, bags, key rings, pens, coasters, track suit pants, aussie dingoes custom broomball stick etc..  it is all very cool stuff.
Payment Plan :- Seems like a fair load of cash, but payments are spread out. First up is airfares, anywhere up to a year out (or day of flight if you are Jeff Ferrara). An initial rego/gear payment will be due in April. Final gear payments June. Then just accommodation and spending money once there.


The schedule for the 2017/18 Summer Mixed Competition is now available. Games commence this Tuesday 17/10 from 7:15pm. We continue to have 8 teams in the competition, so there will be 4 games per night.

The Winter 2017 Mixed season has been run and won, with the Camels taking out the A Grade Grand Final, for the 13th season in a row (wow!), with victory over the Legion of Broom in a close, hard fought game.

The Winner of the Bob McElhinney Medal for Best on Ice was Maureen Busuttil - Congratulations!

The B Grade Grand Final was a very close affair, with a battle between the Arctic Assassins and the Beers that went into overtime. With the sides all tied up at the end of overtime, the game was forced into a shootout of epic proportions. Both sides struggled to score in the pressure cooker situation, but the The Arctic Assassins finally emerged victorious with a sudden death goal scored by Casper Fertier.

Congratulations to our Champions the Camels and Arctic Assassins, and well done to all teams for a fantastic season. A special thanks to all teams for managing to get all players registered before finals! Let's aim to get everyone registered before the start of the next season.

A big thanks also to all those that refereed and sat in the time box this season - the games wouldn't happen without you!

We've taken a week off, but Broomball will return this Tuesday, 19th September from 7:15pm with a change up format of Men's contact and Women's league games. More info has been emailed out and will be posted here and in the schedule shortly. If you would like to be a part of this and have not already put your name down, please contact the BASA secretary asap. Stay tuned for more info...
