Broomball is a popular recreational ice sport originating in Canada and played around the world. It is played in a hockey rink, either indoors or outdoors, depending on climate and location.
In a game of broomball there are two teams, each consisting of six players, a goaltender plus five others. The object of the game is to score more goals than your opponent. Goals are scored by hitting the ball into your opponent's net using your broom. Tactics and plays are similar to those used in sports such as ice hockey, roller hockey and floorball.
Players hit a small ball around the ice with a stick called a 'broom'. The broom may have a wooden or aluminium shaft and has a rubber-moulded triangular head similar in shape to that of a regular broom. Players wear special rubber-soled shoes instead of skates, and the ice is prepared in such a way that it is smooth and dry to improve traction.

The greatest way to piss of an RA, next to shitting on the floor. Usually played in the halls of a dorm. Its similar to hockey. There are two goals (tipped over long trash cans, worth one point) and one bonus goal (a square recycling bin standing up, worth two points). There are five people per team, one goalie (janitor) and four others (sweepers). Teams are defined by the color speedo they wear. The object of the game is to get a small beach ball (the urinal cake) into one of the goals, using traditional brooms. Penalties result in the loss of a key and if you lose two keys you are out of the game. The only team currently recognized by ABBAMA (American Broom Ball Association of Michigan of America)is at the University of Michigan's Summer Dive Camp.
