The winter finals begin tomorrow night. Please check the schedule for matches and duties.
The Annual General Meeting of the Broomball Association of South Australia is to be held at the Mile End Hotel, Mile End on Tuesday 10th November at 7pm.
This will include trophy presentations for Spring 2019/20 and Winter 2020.
This is the post you have all been waiting for... Broomball is back!!!
The IceArena is opening tomorrow, and we will start playing on Tuesday.
Due to the short notice this week we will start with a one-and-a-half-hour session of scratch matches from 7.30-9.00pm. This will be $20 per player, cash on the night, please bring a light and dark jersey.
Our Winter Competition will begin from 14th July. Please let your team captain know if you are playing as we need teams nominated by Thursday 9th July so that we can create the schedule. Captains - please nominate your teams online.
We look forward to seeing you there!
As most of you have seen, indoor sporting venues have been forced to close. From today under government direction we find all ice rinks shut.
This means all Broomball is suspended immediately. We will resume once the IceArenA can open it's doors again, and we will keep you informed.
In regards to fees, the committee will discuss with regards to the payments of the last 3 games of Mens and Womens that have been cancelled, and let members know once we have an outcome.
Please stay safe, be smart, practice social distancing, isolate and be clean. But ensure you stay connected, and do not be alone during this time. Everyone is only a message or call away. Happy to have a cider through face time!
Thank you for your continued support of Broomball in SA, and we will see each other out on the ice soon!
Please reach out if you have any questions.

BASA President and Secretary
Due to the recent Covid-19 updates, Broomball Nationals have been cancelled.
Local Broomball is still going ahead, but we will be following Health SA updates and keep members informed. No one will be able to borrow the loan gear unless they bring wipes to clean it before and after use.
We are also implementing the following:
Local level Broomball
Broomball Australia recommends all members (players, team staff, spectators) of broomball associations and leagues implement (at a minimum) the below set of actions for upcoming training sessions and matches:
- Replace handshaking at the start and conclusion of games with (for example) simply tapping sticks on the ground, fist pump with gloves on.
- Use labelled water bottles. These must be strictly single person use. Avoid use of communal water bottles.
- Mouth-guards should be washed after each game, followed by cleaning of hands.
- Continue to cover nose and mouth with tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing.
- Keep 1.5m distance from anyone that is coughing or sneezing.
- Use alcohol-based hand wash where available
- All players and officials should wash their hands with soap and water and dry with paper towel prior to and after games.
- Gloves should be worn when attending to players with injuries – especially against blood exposure but also to prevent contact with mouth-guards.
- Keep your kit together to stop cross contamination with garments and other pieces of protective gear (ie don’t share gloves, jerseys, elbow or knee guards and in particular helmets.
Any member with flu-like symptoms should self-exclude from playing, training and spectating at the first sign of the symptoms and seek medical advice.
Further advice on the Coronavirus COVID-19 can be found from the following recommended sources:

Broomball is back for 2020.
The mixed season is fast coming to and end and with the 2020 Broomball Australia Nationals in April the mixed season will give way to the Men's and Women's competition up till the Nationals. Mixed will return there after through the rest of the year.
Teams and Captains note your game times and team duty responsibilities to ensure you are ready to play at the posted time and have referees and scorebox persons ready to take charge of the game.
Note that there is supposed to be a maximum of three persons only in the score box so kindly respect this rink policy.
We also have the 2020 IFBA World Broomball Championships in early November, so the chance to play broomball at the highest levels available is certainly on the cards this year.
If you have an interest in attending either let the comittee know soon so you can be included in any information that is distributed.
Registration for the Spring 2019/20 competition is now open via the members portal of the BASA website. Team managers, please register your team by selecting the Spring 2019/20 Mixed Competition as soon as possible so we can generate the schedule.
Your players will need to register to the team once the team is approved and before they take to the ice. Player jersey numbers are mandatory and will be enforced at registration time this season, so please sort this out with your players before they register. Duplicate numbers are not permitted.
The season will commence on Tuesday 30th July from 7:30pm.
Don't forget the Presentation & AGM tomorrow night at the Hilton Hotel Mile End at 6:30pm!
Any issues with registration, please don't hesitate to contact me via email.
Broomball Nationals training tomorrow night will be a similar structure to the last week.
7:30pm-8:15pm Men have the whole ice to do as they please (drills/game plays/scratchie)
8:00pm-8:15pm Women's Whiteboard Session (please be ready to go as we will be going straight on the ice after)
8:15pm -8:40pm(ish) the Women will take one end of the ice for drills etc and the men can take the other half of the ice, I suggest maybe practice 1 on 1s with Steve in goals.
8:40pm-9:00pm the Women finish with a scratchie against what ever guys are happy to stick around for a last little run. We'll try fit in 2x10min halves for the girls.
As usual if you can bring a red, light and dark jersey, cyas there!
