The 2021 Mixed Winter Season schedule is up.

Click the link below to see it.

Please remember to register and pay your season fee.



Next week is the last week of the men's comp. The format is round robin with games 30 mins long so in reality each team will play 60 mins on the night...

To facilitate this the following will apply.


29th June 6:45pm White v Green Ref x 2 Team RED
  7:15pm Red v White Ref x 2 Team Green
  7:45pm Green v Red Ref x 2 Team WHITE



Goalkeepers - Robbie in all 3 games..

                    Game 1    Team RED to supply a keeper

                    Game 2    Team GREEN to supply a keeper

                    Game 3    Team WHITE to supply a keeper


Again note that the games are 30 mins so all teams and referees be ready to hit the ice.

To facilitate finishing on time assume that we shall play a 30 min period along the same line for a regular 20 min period.

Change over between games needs to be done as quick as possible..



This will be a 7-week competition starting on Tuesday. This will cost each player $110, which will be invoiced by BASA.

As you may or may not know, there has been a temporary booking discrepancy at the rink, and we are having to readjust our bookings temporarily.


We have decided that it is best that we take a 2-week break so that the executive can address this and be ready to have Broomball games for its members. 


We will have a Men’s and Women’s competition starting on May 18th from 6.45pm – 8.15pm. 

We will have a Women’s game each week, and the Men’s will have 3 teams with a team having a Bye each week and competing for the Zamboni Cup. 

These games will also give us an opportunity to train new referees. Please let me or Alan Jabs know if you would like to have a go. 


If you would like to play, please let me know ASAP so that we can organise teams. Cost will be per player, no greater than $20 per game, but to be confirmed once we have numbers. 


Christine Filsell

BASA Secretary

Hi All,

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.
Kate Irvine and Christine Filsell
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.

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.

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!


Broomball Nationals training tomorrow night will be a slightly different structure to the last few weeks.

It is often said and monitored that the rink policy is to have no more than three in the score box at any one time.

That it is nice and warm in there and at times a great place to chat with friends is not what the score box is all about.

Certainly broomball is a social sport and that is encouraged but with all the expensive equipment that is also there the policy was developed to limit persons but still have access to manage the score board.

Therefore we ask that with each team duty that the maximum is limited to just the three or we may find ourselves without access to the room.

(note referees are allowed to enter above and beyond the limit)



All those playing Nationals need to attend, all other members are encouraged and welcomed to attend so we have another team to play against.
7.00pm Women's whiteboard training
7.30 - 9.00 pm Ice time (including some scratch matches)

Please bring red, white and blue (non-nationals players) jerseys.



There is NO Broomball Tuesday 12/3 due to rink maintenance. Round 1 will continue on Tuesday 19/3.



The 2019 Summer Broomball season is set to kick off from 7:15pm next Tuesday 22nd January.  The schedule is now available on the website - please check your teams game & duty times.

Remember the BASA no pay - no play policy is being enforced this season - make sure you have registered to your team via the members portal AND paid all your outstanding fees or made arrangements with the treasurer.

There are again 7 teams entered so there will be 3 games per week and teams will have byes.

The season is two rotations, with a large break between rotations to allow for some rink upgrades that are scheduled to occur and Men's/Women's Competition + Training in the lead up to the 2019 Australian Championships. Details to follow.

Remember to sign up to the BASA Sharks team online if you would like to go to Nationals this year. You will need your BASA login for this. More info on the event can be found here

Good luck to all teams and players this season!

See you on the ice!



It's that time of the season again - Finals Time!

Mixed Finals

The Camels are again this season's Mixed A Grade Minor Premiers, having not lost a game all season. Who will Stop the Camels? The B grade minor premiers are the Foreign Invaders. Well done to both teams! Can they carry this form into the Finals? We will begin to find out next Tuesday (4th Dec) from 7:15pm as the Mixed competition finals series kicks off from 7:15pm @ the IceArenA! Check the schedule to see what time you play!

Some notes for the finals series:

  • Alan Jabs will ref all games in the first round along side a ref supplied by the listed duty team.
  • Scorebox duties is as per the duty team - please ensure you provide people from your team to fill these duties or contact the RIC if there are any issues.
  • Games are 20 min halves with one minute at half time. Each team gets one time out available. (one minute from the time you call it).
  • A draw at full time sees 3 plus a goalie for five mins sudden death.
  • If still a draw then a shoot out consisting of three persons.
  • If still a draw the shoot out continues through the team roster.
  • 'Highest finishing team in the minor rounds' gets to choose if they shoot first or second and if they want to start with a male or female first. Players alternate gender based on that decision. (both teams follow the decision)
  • ** If a game is finished before the allotted time (doesn't take the full hour allotted) then after discussion with both captains to ensure all team members are present we may commence the next game early, so have you players ready to go before the posted time. (if we are running late then please complete a basic warm up off ice so we can get started and not run too late - a short on ice warm up will still be allowed, but be ready to go) 

Good luck to all Mixed teams competing in the finals! Commiserations to the Wolverines, who unfortunately miss out this season and get that big 'ol spoon thingo to stir the pot with and mix up a winning formula for next season!

Men's Contact Grand Final

The Men's contact Grand Final was fiercely contested on Tuesday night, with "Those Guys" facing off against "The Foreign Legion".  Those guys gained an early ascendancy and controlled much of the game, but due to the solid defence of the Foreign Legion, were unable to find the back of the net with the game seemingly destined for overtime.  That was until a piercing shot from Mark Crowther broke down the defences in the second half.  Late in the second period, the Foreign Legion managed to score a great goal from a breakaway through Kyle Matthews, levelling it up.  Those guys pounded the opposition defence as the Foreign Legion suffered a late penalty, but were unable to take advantage of it as the final hooter sounded.  This put the game into a four on four overtime period, with the Foreign Legion down to three due to the penalty.  The three Legionaries defended gallantly until an unfortunate mix up between the goal keeper and defence of the Foreign Legion saw Brad Mackintosh swoop in and steal the decider from under the goal keepers nose.  A disappointing end to what what a thrilling battle of the top two Men's sides. One can't but feel it is a little unfair for a team that couldn't be bothered to pick a team name to take out the crown, but their on ice performances throughout the season silenced these notions making them deserved winners.  

A great effort by all three teams this season and hopefully all involved enjoyed the experience and skills gained through this format and will be keen for another Men's Contact competition in the near future.

Women's Competition

The Women's competition has been completed for this season, with only two teams there is no need for a Grand Final to decide the winner.  The Champions this season are the Snow Maidens - Well done to the Maidens! Also well done to all the Beavers who battled hard against them all season. We hope all involved enjoyed the competition and gained valuable experience that can be taken into next year's National Championships where we are hoping to have multiple Women's teams.  We are also hopeful that you will be keen for another Women's competition in the future as we want to grow this area of our sport and encourage more female participation.

Good luck to all in the Mixed Finals!

Thanks for your patience with all the ice rink maintenance that has happened and interrupted our season. As a result the next 3 weeks will consist of the final series and then straight into Nationals training.

If it is still tied at the end of the 5 minute period we move to a shootout. Shootouts will be 3 people from each team alternating genders. Then if it is still tied you continue shooting from the remainder of your roster continuing the alternating genders until a result is obtained.

The schedule is now available on the website. Good luck to all teams in the finals!



Hi Broomballers,

The 2018 Australian National Broomball Championships are fast approaching (6-10 June).  Those wishing to compete at this year's nationals are required to submit an SA Sharks Nomination form. Please complete this asap so that teams can be finalised. BASA encorages all members to consider going to nationals.  It is a great way to improve your skill and gain experience competing at a higher level.  You also get to meet other like-minded broomballers and represent your state at a national tournament!

The SA Sharks nomination form can be found via the BASA members area here or from the 2018 nationals information page in the Sharks area (requires login).  Please note that an upfront $60 registration fee is required to be paid on sign up.

Further information about nationals can be found on the nationals information page and the host ACTBA's website and event facebook page.



We've had confirmation that the ice repairs are complete and the rink is ready to go. Games will resume this Tuesday, 27th March with Round 17.



Bromballers, we have received confirmation that the Ice will not be ready for this Tuesday, 20th March. We will resume round 17 on March 27th.



BASA members, due to ice maintenance there will be no Broomball games next week, 13th March. This maintenance includes a total defrost where they will repair many pipes underneath and repaint the lines. This could potentially be a 2-week process, but they are hoping for only 1, so please keep an ear out regarding when we resume. 

We are looking at hosting the first of the referee course, hosted by Alan, during our usual time slot. If you are interested please contact the basa secretary by email. This is a good chance to start the process of becoming a BASA accredited referee.

There is a potential that we can hold some fast-four games on half of the large ice between 7.15-9.15. This would be at a cost of $20 each, and would need definite numbers by Friday 9th March so that it can be booked. This will only be booked if we have 15 people.



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.



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 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.



A reminder that Broomball returns tonight (9/1) from 7:15pm at the IceArenA with round 9 of the Mixed Broomball season. We hope you have had a relaxing and safe holiday period and are raring to go tonight!

See you on the ice!



Tonight (19/12) will be the last round of games before Christmas. Please join us at The Wheatsheaf after your game for some beer and pizza (donated by The Wheatsheaf - thanks to Simon for organising).

Games will resume with round 9 on the 9th January 2018.

We wish all our members an enjoyable, restful and safe holiday period and we will see you all on the ice in the new year!



Broomball resumes tonight (19/12) from 7:15pm with rink maintenance works completed. This week we play the postponed round 8 games. Please check the schedule for game times.

See you on the ice!



Due to ice maintenance, our games tonight have been postponed. More information will be provided as it becomes available. Stay tuned!



After a short maintenance break, the ice rink is back up and running this week, with last week's postponed games scheduled to be played from 7:15pm tomorrow (5/12) night. Please check the schedule for game & duty times.



Please be advised that tomorrow night's games (28/11) are postponed due to Ice Maintenance. At this stage the schedule will be pushed back 1 week and we expect this weeks games will be played on 5/12, pending further advice from rink management. We will keep you posted on any further developments.



There have been some necessary changes made to the Summer 2017/18 Mixed competition schedule, including this coming weeks' games. Please check the updated schedule on the website to find your game/duty times.



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.

Airfares :- $1500-2500

Jerseys - 2 x $70 = $140 (probably want couple extra for swapping)
Pants - $80
Polo's - $45

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 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...

Hi BASA members, please be advised that Broomball is CANCELLED tomorrow night 11/7 due to some technical issues with the rink.

Please spread the word.



A reminder that the 2017 Winter Mixed Competition begins tomorrow night (Tuesday 2/5) at 7:15pm. Please check the schedule to see what time your team plays and when your team duty is.

This season there are a few changes in place:

  1. All players must register and pay their season fees before they take to the ice to ensure they are covered by insurance. Fees are $50 for the season ($10 new players). The registration process contains payment details. Registration is via the BASA members portal:
  2. Referee & scorebox duties have changed: Each team will now only be required to supply one referee and one score box person per game as duties will be shared.
    • Game 1 teams have duty for Game 2;
    • Game 2 teams have duty for Game 1;
    • Game 3 teams have duty for Game 4;
    • Game 4 teams have duty for Game 3;
    This means teams will have duties each week but only need half the amount of people. Teams are able to work it out between themselves if they need help.
  3. Some minor changes have been made to the BASA By-Laws, including the introduction of a permit system for finals.

Note that we will be introducing 2 of each gender on the ice at all times from next season Summer 2017/18, so start recruiting now!

See you on the ice! Don't forget to register!



The 2017 Winter Mixed Broomball season begins next Tuesday 2nd May at 7:15pm. We still do not have all teams registered, so Team captains, please register your team ASAP via the online system (or let the committee know if you do not intend to enter your team this season).

A reminder that all players need to register to play/goal keep for their team and are required to pay their BASA season fees ($50 [$10 new players]) BEFORE their first game.

The schedule will be available on the website soon, so please check back to see what time your team plays and if you have team duty.

No Sunday Broomball This Week

Please note that there will be no Broomball for the next two Sundays (18/9 & 25/9) as the ice is booked out. Sunday Broomball will recommence on the 2nd October.



New Sunday Broomball Competition

Since the closure of the Noarlunga ice rink the Noarlunga players have been looking to establish a Sunday afternoon Broomball session at the Ice Arena at Thebarton. If you haven't played at Noarlunga before, essentially it is a mixed non-contact competition, the teams are made up on the night (dependant on numbers), the games are self-refereed and the format is very similar to the fast four competition which we all enjoyed playing earlier in the year while the large ice was being repaired.

BASA have now successfully secured a 4:15pm -6:15pm time slot on Sunday afternoons and are happy to announce that the Broomball Sunday sessions will be kicking off this Sunday 21st August.

It is a great format of the game for new players to try the sport for the first time, to spend more time on the ice and improve their skills in a fast moving game. For the more experienced players it’s a great opportunity to practice and hone the skills, especially in the lead up to events like the National and World Championships. If you liked the fast four competition you will love this! Once we know that this will be supported by all members we will formalise a structured competition, after Worlds.

Cost is likely to be $10 - $15 depending on numbers.

We'll look at any specific rule requirements and restrictions over the coming weeks for playability and safety and review along the journey as necessary.

BASA encourages all to attend this Sunday @ 4:15pm @ the IceArena.



Return to Main Ice: Winter Season Begins!

The 2016 Winter Mixed Broomball season begins this Tuesday night, 10th May at 7:15pm. As we have 7 teams again, the first bye goes to The Hammer. With the start of the new season, we see a return to the newly upgraded main ice sheet. We also welcome a new look team, the Wolverines, to the competition.

Please check the schedule to see what time your team plays and if you have any ref/scorebox duties.

Team captains, please ensure all your players have registered to your team before their first game.

Good luck to all Broomballers for the new season!

See you on the ice!



Winter 2016 Season Registration Open - Please Register Teams ASAP

Follow the prompts to complete the short registration process.

Womens and Mens Matches on Small Ice This Week

The large ice will not be ready tonight so we will remain on the small ice this week.

The format for Tonight is as follows:

  • 8.15pm – Women's match
  • 8.45pm – Men's Match
  • 9.15pm – Women's Match
  • 9.45pm – Men's Match

Kate and Christine have the Women's teams sorted and they will organise this.

As far as the Men's go we will organise teams on the night so please bring out a assortment of playing tops.

To avoid any confusion we will run with the same FastFour playing rules as the previous small ice games for both Men's and Women's. We need some volunteers to ref and time keep.



2016 Broomball Nationals Update

The 2016 Broomball Nationals have been moved and rescheduled due to the unfortunate situation at the Adelaide ice rink. The following is the official announcement from Broomball Australia.

To all,

We have today announced that the 2016 Broomball Australia Nationals will be held at the Erina rink, Central Coast, NSW over the June Long Weekend. (Jun 10 - 13).

Knowing that the time is short I urge all to contact their respective local committees immediately if you are planning to attend so teams can be organised and you can fix travel and accommodation.

It has been unfortunate that we were not able to hold the event in Adelaide this year but as we are all well aware with no ice we have no broomball.

Over the last few weeks Saxon, Bryce and myself have been looking at alternate dates and locations and to Saxon and Bryce I offer my thanks for the huge efforts in getting this up and running. Now we need everyone to support this as if it was in Adelaide so it can be the success it deserves to be.

I know we shall get your support and I look forward to seeing all of you in Gosford over the June long weekend.

As I do not have everybody's email address please feel free to forward this on to those I have missed as well as posting on Facebook and website accounts to get the message out there to all...

Kind regards,

Alan Jabs
Broomball Australia

Please spread the word and contact a committee member if you are interested in attending Nationals.



BASA Fast4 Competition Begins!

The new Fast4 competition starts tomorrow night from 8:15pm on the small ice at the IceArena. Please check the schedule to see what time you play.

Modified rules have been developed and distributed to all team captains. They are also are available here. Please remember to play within the spirit of the rules and this new format while we continue to keep our local league going during this difficult time.

Good luck to all teams! See you on the ice!



Broomball Update and Scratch Matches Tonight!

Broomball Night

Tonight (Tuesday 15th March) starting at 8.15PM we have the opportunity to run a night of Broomball on the small ice, we have booked the ice for 2 hours and ask for those that want to play to bring a few different coloured tops. We will run the games with 4 per team + goal keeper. Time of games will depend on how many turn up. We would think that the team you are in would play at least twice on the night. The main reason for this is to see how a Broomball competition could work on the small ice.

Ice Rink

Two working groups have been formed as of last Tuesday night, one group is looking at opportunities to secure funding to get the large ice running again, the second group is looking at options for a temporary rink. We have another meeting with the SAISF on Tuesday night and will be updated on the two groups progress and we hope to have some positive news to share.

Broomball Summer Season

The committee have met and have discussed many options regarding the current summer season. The committee have decided that the summer season has been completed as of the last game that we played. There was only 1 more Tuesday night of games to go before finals started.

With no possibility playing a finals series the final ladder positions as they are will represent the end of the season standings.

The committee feel that this is the best result given the circumstances we find ourselves in. We understand that it is not ideal and that some member’s may not agree but we consider this our best option.

Broomball Presentation Night

We are aiming to hold a presentation night on the 22nd of March at the Wheatsheaf Hotel where we will present all trophies and enjoy pizza and drinks. Please note that this is to be confirmed.

Could I ask that all captains please do a team write up including your team MVP. Nat Olsen is putting together a great newsletter and we want ALL TEAMS to have a write up in the newsletter.

Broomball Competition

Starting on the 29th of March we will be starting a Broomball competition on the small ice. Fast Five Broomball will have modified rules due to the small ice and we will be running this competition until we can get back onto the large ice. Rules and a schedule will be sent out after this Tuesday night once we have assessed Tuesday nights games. The committee would hope that all existing teams take part in the Fast Five Broomball competition and we also would like to encourage new players to come out as this format may be better suited for the new inexperienced player. If your team feels that they can field 2 teams in this comp please do so. Registration will open soon.

The situation we find ourselves in has never been experienced before and therefore we do not have any history to look back on. The committee would like to highlight that it is important that we all continue to play and promote Broomball. I do know that we will get back to a full ice competition eventually and we do not want to loose any members during this period, We need to come back bigger and better.

The committee would also like to thank those that have expressed their support for the committee in these challenging time, it is a welcome change.

If you have any questions related to any of this news, please contact the committee.




Hi Broomballers,
Some sad news unfortunately. We have received communication from the rink regarding the large ice and the repairs that are taking place.

The repairs to the leaking pipes have been completed. Two pressure tests have occurred and both have failed! It is clear from these tests that there are more leaks under the main ice but their location, number and size cannot be determined. The significant age of the pipe system and the fact that the pipes are imbedded in concrete means that further attempts to find and fix leaks are not feasible.

This has massive implications for us!

  1. the pipes under the main ice surface are now deemed unfixable
  2. The Department of the Environment will not permit any refrigerant gas to be introduced into the main ice pipe system.
  3. We are therefore not able to create ice on the main surface.

The only way forward is to install a new refrigeration system for the main ice, so sadly we have to inform you that there will be no main ice for at least two months and possibly longer.

This impacts on all sports as well as the Broomball nationals.

We have contacted the other state broomball associations and they understand the situation. We have taken the step to put nationals on hold at this stage. We will be working with the other associations to try and resolve the issues associated with this postponement.

Our president will be meeting with the SAISF board early next week to discuss our options regarding the local league and Nationals. The committee will then meet directly after to discuss, and we will consult with teams via the team captains.

At this stage Broomball has been postponed indefinitely.

The committee will have a hectic couple of weeks and we ask for your support and confidence that we will be working hard to ensure that Broomball will be as strong as it is now when it returns.

The committee is aware of all the implications associated with this and we will be looking to continue playing in some form so we ask for your patience while we work through this. We will organise a presentation night and advise the timing shortly.

If you require any clarification on this matter please contact the committee via email.

BASA Committee




Hi Broomballers,
we have been advised that the large ice will be closed for another week. The repairs are going well but unfortunately they have discovered some further leaking pipes that need repair.

While undertaking this work, staff at the rink are taking the opportunity to repair some of the boards and repaint the rink.

At this stage they are looking to open the ice on Monday the 7th March. We will confirm this closer to the date.

We will push the season back a further week.

Please spread the word to all broomballers. We will keep you posted.

BASA Committee




Hello all, as you know the ice surface has not been great of late. This is a result of broken pipes under the ice surface.

Over the last few weeks the SAISF and the owner of the centre have been negotiating the repair of the pipes and the replacement of lost gas.

This has now been resolved and the repairs will be carried out immediately. This will mean that the rink will be closed for approx. 1 week and therefore Broomball for Tuesday 23rd Feb has been cancelled.

We will simply push the season back 1 week. We will advise if there are further delays.

Please spread the word to all broomballers. We will keep you posted.

BASA Winter Season Premiers 2015

The Grand Finals were fiercely contested last week.

In the B Grade we had the Assassins facing off with the Hammer. In a tough match neither team could find the back of the net. The game went to overtime ending in the same scoreline. It came down to a penalty shootout, with the Hammer managing to take out the B Grade Prize. Well done to the Hammer.

The A Grade saw the Invaders take on reigning premiers the Camels. In a fierce match, the Camels again proved too strong, finding the net on several occassions to score a convincing win and retain the A Grade Champions title. Congratulations Camels! Congratulations also to Johan Einarson for winning the Bob Mac medal for best on ice.

So with anothers season run and won, we take a ahort break before the Summer 2015/2016 Season commences on 27th October.

We have received complaints against Broomball from the rink on two fronts:

Firstly, when putting the Goals away, please be PARTICULARLY careful to NOT slide the goals over any cable or hose lying on the ground. They May Be electrically LIVE! (Yes they should protected, covered or whatever, but there are no guarantees). This was done a couple of weeks ago (using our goals), and bared the wires, fortunately there were no injuries, but it could have been more serious. Be aware!

Secondly, please ensure that if you HAVE to change in the common area, that you do so in an appropriate manner. Basically any exposure of underwear is verboten. Use the change rooms if you have to strip down. This applies to both male and female players. Any nudity may see you expelled from the rink. You should all be aware by now of this policy and the fact that there are often young children present. We as a club risk being banned or forced to ALL utilise the change rooms if this policy is not adhered to. Just be sensible about it.>

Well the BASA Site is backup. No thanks to the Hosting provider who decided to suspend the account as a Backup file wasn't deleted in their time frame (despite them advising me they would delete it!).

Due to some critical maintenance on the Ice Rink Condenser that was scheduled for today, the Ice rink has identified a leak. This will require further work to fix and this unfortunately means that the ice will not be in a suitable state for us and we have no choice but to cancel Broomball tonight - 5/11/2013.

Can you please make sure that your players are all aware of the cancellation.

This round will be rescheduled to a later date. >

A slight change of the scheduled Start time for tonights game. Start time is 7:30pm.
On this, I am not sure what the age of some of the competitors might be but can we try our best to NOT get changed in the normal area. I don't think parents would like to see broomballs dropping their dacks if their child is only a short distance away. If the grandstand is free I propose that broomballers take equipment up there. That way we should have someone keeping a watchful eye on our kits. Simon. >

Hi all, there has been a slight change to the schedule to accommodate some ice time needed by the Junior Ice Hockey National Championships on the night of 16th July.
The Women's and Men's games scheduled for the 23rd July round are to be swapped to the 16th July starting at 7:15pm and the Mixed games will now be played the following week (23rd July) at the usual times.

Please check the
schedule to confirm your game/duty times.>

All. Please note that the Small Ice is not available to us for warming up, training, practice or any other activity. This is being monitored by the rink management and any breaches may incur a cost (to hire the small ice), which WILL be passed on to you.

And a reminder, the Score Box is ONLY for time keepers, scorer and referee's. Again this is something the Ice Rink Management is monitoring and continued breaches may lose us access to the scorebox. So please don't take offence when you get kicked out. If you have a question of someone in the scorebox, please use the side window.
I know it's warm and a good spot, and very social, but this is being driven by the rink management and is something we need to comply with. So, you will be asked to leave, if you are not meant to be there. If you have any issues please take it up with the committee, or myself (Shaps) and we can feed it back to the Rink Management.>

The Winter 2013 Season, start this Tuesday - 7th May 2013. Please check the schedule for your teams match time. Welcome to the new look Destroyers - The Hammer!>

Congratulations to the Mixed Intermediate Champions, the SA Sharks. Taking on the NSW #1 Mixed Intermediate squad in a close and tight final. Goal scorer Michela Dunmall. Well done Guys and Gals.>

Big Congratulations to the SA Womens squad, taking the National flag in a tense,exciting Grand Final against the ACT Women. ACT Scored early on in the First (Olivia Boyd)half and held SA Out right through the game until the last minute, when SA Scored on a Breakaway (Ceitlyn Walker). Overtime saw SA play with one player down due to a penalty late in the second half with only 8 seconds left on the clock. SA Held on through the penalty and put pressure back on ACT after the penalty was over. But 1 all at the end of full time saw the game move into a penalty shootout. A great goal by Alana Bracken for SA sealed it. Great Back to Back Win Girls!

CUDOS also to the Mens Intermediate squad SA Red taking out the Intermediate category as well, with a three to two win over the NSW 1 team. SA score early with two quick goals by Mat Irvine and Gerry McCaffery, but NSW pulled it back with goals by Zac Law and Tim Roffey. But final goal late in the second half saw SA Red hold it out for a great win with a goal by Tom Stevens. Coingrats to SA Red Men's Intermediate Squad.>

BASA Summer 2012 Presentation and AGM
This seasons Presentation, AGM and Nationals Jersey Presentation will be held at the Wheatsheaf Hotel, from 7:30pm on. All players are urged to attend.

Tuesday 23rd April - 7:30pm - Wheatsheaf Hotel (the Wheatie).>

The 2013 Nationals teams will be posted up tonight on the score box window. Please take the time to review the team lists. If you are unhappy with your placement, please talk to Shaps, Kate or Massey and we will do our best to resove any issues.>

Well, after this weeks disaster, the Finals rounds have been rescheduled.
For those that werent there, after yours truly attempted to wrench the (and succeeded) door off its hinges and utilise it as a blocker. The two finals matches had unfortunately to be abandonded as the door could not be safely reattached. (Snapped hinge).
So the matches have all been pushed back by 1 week, and are rescheduled as previously. Check the website for details, and please ensure your team members are aware (especially those that we not present this week). >

New Start Time - 7:15pm - THIS WEEK - 19th March.
After several years of protracted negotiations, we have managed to negotiate with the Ice Arena management some new start times that will be in effect all year round, starting (actually two weeks ago) this coming week (19th March), broomball will commence year round at 7:15pm. So please ensure that your team is aware of the new start times.
This will give Broomball some scope, for expansion into the future (long term) and would allow us to run up to 5 or even 6 games a night (assuming we get the teams/players). Our strongest season is traditionally winter, which is where we struggle most to procure the extra ice time, so we hope to have this change give us some future opportunities.>

Good afternoon,

The first of hopefully 2 delegates meeting per year is approaching.
The delegates meeting requires a minimum of 2 members per team to attend a short meeting where myself and other members of the executive committee will relay important updates, and go through significant rule interpretations. This is also an opportunity for you to ask questions of the exec committee and RIC regarding rules and their interpretations.
This meeting is important to ensure consistency across all teams in regards to playing behaviour and refereeing.
During this meeting I hope to cover the interpretations and legal rulings of 4 of the most common penalties and what goal keepers can and cant do in regards to ball handling.
Please ensure that you have at least 2 members of your team attending this meeting. It is vital to relay correct information and manage your team.

2012 Nationals.>

Without directing this at any one player or team. You are ALL reminded that, we DO have a code of conduct at Broomball. Sledging, abuse, abuse of officials, deliberate attempts to injure or intimidation is not to be tolerated. We are (alas) an amateur sport, where all Officials, committee members and players perform their duties, not because they have to or are paid to, but simply because they love our sport. To abuse officials for performing their designated duty is just stupid, and degrading, not only to the player, the official, but to the sport as well. Sledging or abuse during matches is not a right or a priviledge, its demeaning and can border on slander. Would you want that said to you? As for intimidation or deliberate attempts to injure, REALLY! Need I say more! Lets clean it up. The player next to you is a friend, so lets keep it Friendly!>

Nationals is pretty close. Can we all make sure we hang around after game 3 for a quickie practice. Even if you are not going to Nationals it will be a big help to those that are. Please pass this message onto others, we really need a good turnout. Cheers, Tarz...>

We have had a communication from the rink that they are experiencing a major problem with the Zamboni. A specialist has been called in but may not have the fault rectified until tomorrow at the earliest.
However, in discussing the issue with the rink managerement the plan is to have the hockey finish a bit early and do a hand scrape then flood with a hose to at least remove the major divets from the ice surface. As a result we may need to wait a bit for the ice to freeze and it will not be a perfect (normal) surface.
The decision has been reached where we will play tonight and will monitor the surface to make sure it is as safe as possible for our members, and we ask that you make your team aware of the issues. >

All those going to Nationals are encouraged to play at the Noarlunga Arena on Thursday nights. From 7.30pm - 9.30pm. We run a pickup league, so all players (male/female) are welcome. Some Nationals training will also take place after the pickup games. See Rob Wheelwright or Kim Shapley for further details. >

Nationals Update (From Saxon Hooper) Here are the FINAL session times for nationals. Please pass on to your members so they can arrange flights etc.. These are locked in and there is no scope for change. There is a massive shortage of ice time in Sydney and Im lucky to get this much time (cancelled hockey games, public & school sessions and ice dancing sessions for me).

Thursday 28th 6:00am -> 12:00pm
Thursday 28th 3:00pm -> Midnight (maybe more if we need, hopefully not)
Friday 29th 6:00am -> 7:30pm
Saturday 30th 5:00pm -> Midnight (maybe more if we need, hopefully not)
Sunday 1st May 7:30am - 10:30am (Finals)

Which means a lunch time presentation starting at 11.30am I guess (kick on at Panthers after for those hanging around).

So far confirmed teams as follows:

NSW - 1 Mens Elite, 2 Mens Intermediate, 2 Womens
SA - 1 Mens Elite, 1 Mens Intermediate, 1 Womens
ACT - 1 Mens Elite, 1 Womens, Working on 1 Mens Intermediate
QLD - 1 Womens, 1 Mens Elite or Mens Intermediate (working on both) >

It is with sad feelings that we announce that
Ralph Cummings passed away.
Ralph was a great supported of Broomball playing when ever he could, mostly at the southern rink at Noarlunga in net. On several occasions he also played at Thebarton mostly for the Isotopes, but filled in also for other teams when asked. Most remarkably he played with a pacemaker and warnings from his medical staff not to over do it.
Always wearing a cheerful disposition and keen with advice he supported SA Broomball even turning up just to watch when he couldn't play.
He will be missed - Ralph was 51.>

The Southern League is running again, with weekly results being posted here.

Nationals Training will run again this Sunday: Women 4:30pm -5:30pm. Men 5:30pm -6:30pm. All welcome, Nationals attendees are particularly encouraged to attend.>

BROOMBALL CANCELLED TONIGHT (6/4/2010) Apologies to all, but we have just been advised by the Ice Rink management that there is a major fault with one of the Chilllers. It may/may not be fixed by this evening (still at this point getting the thing looked at). As such its unlikely that the ice will be suitable for us tonight and as such we have made the decision to Cancel Broomball this week. That will mean that the season will not Start this week but be delayed by a week. There will be no scratch matches tonight either. PLEASE advise your team ASAP to ensure people will not be making an unnecessary trip.>

Our Summer 09/10 presentation night will be held on Saturday April 10th at the Hackney Hotel from 6.30pm. Come along and enjoy a few drinks and dinner with some of your fellow team mates and friends. A table has been booked for each team. We will also be holding our AGM in conjunction with the presentations.

When a team is short on players (and would otherwise forfeit) the following changes have been made to the pickup rule: - Teams can only pick up players from other teams to make up to 4 on the ice plus the goal keeper.
- Pick up player cannot score (goals will be disallowed).
- Goal penalty for each pick up player>

Just a reminder that the NEW season starts this Tuesday (6th April), the new Schedule will be posted up shortly.>

In a game that probably had more contact than the entire preceeding Men's Contact season (now! you start to get the hang of it!!), the Polar Bears managed to run out winners in Overtime. The Reds scored first with a goal by Casper Fertier, which was very quickly followed up by a one on one match up with Andrew Masson doing a nice (and VERY quick) little layout to squeeze it past the pressuring goalie. Overtime saw a goal by Adam Collins seal the fate of the Reds. Congratulations to the Polar Bears, Mens Checking League 2009/10 Summer Season Champions.

Nationals Training will run again this Sunday: Women 4:30pm -5:30pm. Men 5:30pm -6:30pm. All welcome, Nationals attendees are particularly encouraged to attend. There will also be some video training session run in the hour before the respective sessiosn - from 3:30pm - 4:30pm for the Women and from 4:30pm - 5.30pm for the Men.

Congratulations to the Destroyers, defeating the Slipstreamers, in a commanding display. Never really threatened and in control for the entire match, the Destroyers ran out victors, 2 nil.

Found: one helmet (white) with cage, gloves and some padding. The helmet in question was left behind at the rink on March 9th. To claim the helmet and associated items contact Alan Jabs by either using the email link off the BASA site or personally speaking to me next Tuesday night.

Iron Broomballer Tournament.>

We are now nearing the end of the season and as Competition Coordinator I need to look at the schedule for the up coming winter season.
Can you please confirm with your Team Captain ASAP whether you will be playing next season. This is most important also for those in the contact division, as I need to put the next schedule together.
Alan Jabs.>

Just a reminder that the season recommences on 5th January 2010. See you all there (or at least those that can make it).>

Please note that the BASA Exec has approved an alteration to the schedule for early in 2010 to facilitate the inclusion of the Iron Man Comp being held January 25/26th.

Thus the season will recommence one week early now, on January 5th with all games scheduled for Jan 12th now on Jan 5th, all games on Jan 19th now on Jan 12th and all games on Jan 26th now on Jan 19th respectively. >

Teams are reminded that it is their responsibility to ensure there is a time keeper available for your rostered time slot. It is NOT up to other teams to fill in for you unless you have otherwise arranged for this. The roster is posted on the web so there are no excuses, they are also displayed on the match sheets each week. If this continues, the committee may be forced to apply sanctions to the miscreant teams.>

As most of you know we have moved the refs meeting to this coming Tuesday (27th). Due to the ice arena having their ice hockey tournament I thought it would be best we move our meeting to Shannons Insurance at 863-865 South Road, Clarence Gardens. The meeting will be at 7:30pm and hopefully only run for an hour to an hour and half. It is to discuss next seasons approach to reffing, house keeping issues, some rule interpretations and referee behaviours. This is an important meeting to get broomball in SA to the best possible level. This is also an opportunity for you guys to have your say in how we do things at BASA!! So please make an effort to come along.>

The new season commences on November 3rd. With the start of the new season there will be a few changes. Firstly we will be moving to the summer commencement time of 7:00pm. Secondly we have scheduled four mixed games per night as well as the contact league. With five games per night we ask that all teams be ready to commence their game at the posted time. If the small ice is vacant then it can be used for warm ups but as per rink policy hitting balls is not an option. Times for games will vary slightly each week as the contact game has been programmed to rotate through.We also welcome a new Mens Contact Team - the Reds. Finally there will be a break over Christmas of several weeks. A schedule has been finalised and will be posted up on the BASA web site shortly.

For those that were unable to attend the Presentation, the
end of season newsletter is now available, it's located here (2009 Winter). Additionally the last BASA Bulletin is also available.>

A Free 1 hour scratch match will be run on Tuesday Night 9th January for all those interested. Starting at 8pm - 9pm. All welcome. PLease let us know if you are able to make it: Mail to:
Committee. The rink has now been fixed and has now refrozen earlier than expected.>

Note. See above for latest news on the rink.
Unfortunately the rink is unlikely to be ready for our 9th January Match. Work has been continuing intensively for the last couple of weeks and the problem appears to be resolved, however the high temperatures and forcasted temperatures have and will continue to slow the refreezing of the ice. The rink is expected to reopen for public skating on Friday or Saturday (5-6th Jan 2007) but for partial ice only. Unfortunately this will mean again that there will be no Broomball for Tuesday 9th January 2007 (See above for Breaking News). We do expect to be back on the 16th January. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know.(PS: Join the
BASA mailing list).>

Merry Christmas to you all, and all the best for the New Year. We'll see you all ready & willing for the season reopening on January 9th 2007.>

Due to continuing problems with freezing the ice, the Rink management has determined that a full thaw, further maintenance and refreeze is required. This unfortunately will mean the ice arena will be unavailable until after our final 2006 match is scheduled. Consequently we have no option but to cancel broomball for the remainder of the year. There will therefore be no broomball scheduled on Tuesday 12th December or Tuesday 19th December. Broomball will resume as scheduled on Tuesday 9th January 2007. With that we wish you all a Merry Xmas and a Great new Year.>

I have received another call from John at the rink. He has informed me that they are still having a problem with the plant at the rink and it needs more repairs than first thought. As a result the earliest the rink can be ready will be Wednesday. This means NO BROOMBALL this coming week. Please advise as many as possible that we are not playing the 5th December. >

Broomball is cancelled for tonights match (Tuesday 28/11/06) due to a failure in the Chillers at the rink. The ice will not be refrozen in time. Updates on when this round will be resheduled will be advised shortly.>
