Darwin Cup 2019
Broomball Australia is again holding a Darwin Cup competition based on the fast 4 game
The weekend of July 19th - 21st has been set aside for this weekend of fun.
Teams are invited from BAWS, ACTBA, NQBA and BASA to be participants in this annual event. It is hoped that a team from Darwin will again also be involved... Teams will be no more than around 5-6 players per team and goalies will be duty goalies keeping for either team during each game.
With a limited amount of ice we will only need 1-2 teams maximum from each association so please advise the local committee if you are interested...
Finals will be on Sunday depending on number of teams and session times allow for this if booking time from work and flights home... .
I am just waiting for final confirmation on the dates and session times from the rink in Darwin.
It was a success last year and a lot of fun. Darwin in winter is also not a bad place to spend a weekend...

We are finally at the end of the minor rounds for the Summer season!
Congratulations to the Camels who are once again the A grade minor premiers! Congratulations also to The Hammer, who are the B grade minor premiers.
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.
The Finals format will be the same as last season with the Top 4 teams in A-Grade and Bottom 4 into B-grade. The first round of finals is as follows:
- 7th v 8th (B grade Elimination Final)
- 5th v 6th (B grade Qualifying Final - winner goes straight to the B grade grand final)
- 1st v 2nd (A grade Qualifying Final - winner goes straight to the A grade grand final)
- 3rd v 4th (A grade Elimination Final)
Overtime will consist of one 5 minute period, golden goal with 4 players per side (including goal tender). You must maintain the gender requirements during this period.
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!
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.
