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.
2018 World Broomball Championships - Update
Latest in from Saxon:
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.
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 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!

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

This season there are a few changes in place:
- 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: https://basa.org.au/members
- 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.
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.
- 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;
- 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.
