Broomball players wear special rubber-soled shoes and the ice is prepared in such a way that it is smooth and dry to improve traction. A game consists of two teams, each consisting of six players: a goaltender and five others. The object of the game is to score more goals than your opponent. Goals are scored by hitting the ball into your opponent's net using your broom. Tactics and plays are similar to those in ice hockey. Broomball does not require expensive equipment or special skills - just an open mind and a positive attitude!
