Event Description

All alumni are invited to play in the second annual Alumni Broomball Tournament! Round-up a team of at least 6 players, come dressed in warm winter gear, bring your own broomball stick, and show up to win (or just come and enjoy hot cocoa, treats, and a bonfire, all while catching up with fellow Bethel alums).

The tournament will take place at rinks in the Arden Hills area, leading up to the championship game which will take place on Bethel's on-campus broomball rink. Each member of the championship team will receive a customized tumbler!
