What to Wear
Playing broomball is fun, but it can be dangerous if you don't protect yourself. While there are no equipment requirements to play at South Metro Sports, Dayton Broomball highly recommends wearing padding anyway. Remember, the ice can be slippery! Helmets and knee pads are the most important. Gloves and shin guards are also a good idea.
There isn't a lot of equipment specially made for broomball, so you will see players repurposing equipment from other sports. Hockey gloves and shin pads, volleyball knee pads, bike helmets, lacross helmets, football gloves, soccer skin guards, rollerblading pads, etc. Pretty much anything goes.
