Event Description

Broom-tastic! Ice, Ice Baby! Baby Broomers! What was your J-term broomball team name? Whatever it was, now is your team's chance to redeem yourselves and finally win a championship! Or, make up a new name, start from scratch, and make your team "Bethel famous"!

BUYA (Bethel University Young Alumni) invites you to gather a team to play in a broomball tournament at Arden Hills rinks, with a championship game taking place on Bethel's on-campus broomball rink. The BRAND NEW rink was funded by Bethel Student Government in 2016, a dream come true for many die-hard broomballers.

Round up your friends, come dressed in warm gear, bring your own broomball stick, and show up to win! Or just come to enjoy hot cocoa and treats, a bonfire, and lawn games (yes, lawn games in the winter!) by Bethel's rink while others play in the tournament.

All alumni 10 years out and less are welcome to sign up a team.

Registration Details

  • Cost to enter is $50 per team.
  • The maximum number of teams for this tournament is 12.
  • Each team must have at least 6 players, and at least 2 must be women. (Keep in mind, a broomball team lines up like a hockey team with 6 players on the ice: 1 goalie, 3 forwards, and 2 defensemen.)
