Broomball at the Bay
Calling for volunteers...
We are doing some promotional demonstrations at the Glenelg Winter Wonderland throughout July.
We need 10 volunteers for each of the sessions.
Sessions are 11.15am and 12.45pm (for 15 minutes) on the following dates:
Please let Christine Filsell know if you can help out.
Ice Rink Car Park
A communication from the Ice Rink Operations Manager was received in the last few days.
Last Thursday it was noticed that Wilson’s have installed 2 new parking meters. They advised rink management that this was a directive from the landlord and as of Friday they would be managing the car park. Rink management also noticed that there were no option to receive the complementary 3 hrs - no charge ticket.
Rink management requested a meeting with Wilsons to rectify the issue and at the same time got them to agree to NOT to enforce any fines till the 1st of July. Rink Management are hopeful that by this date they will have another working solution in place.
Please be advised that you do not need to get a ticket for now, and if you do receive any fines/notices please forward them to Rink Management so they can be followed up with Wilson.
Rink management are hopeful of a successful outcome for this and as more details come to hand that information will be passed on.
Winter season starts
Broomball is back.
The winter season schedule is now available on the schedule page.
At this stage men's and Women's games are yet to be included into the schedule as teams are still being created and these will be added to the schedule in a few weeks.
Note with seven teams there is now a bye for teams, and teams will now also supply both referees and the score box people. The schedule has all the details.

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.
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!
