The Teresa K. Hilander Community Rink will be open for the season in Sister Bay as soon as the weather allows.  This is a GREAT facility for outdoor sports and is well loved by the residents of northern Door County.  Ice Skating and Broom Ball on Wednesday is a winter tradition in Door County.  What is broom ball?  Via Wikipedia:

Broomball is a recreational ice game originating in Canada and played around the world. It is played in a hockey rink, either indoors or outdoors, depending on climate and location. Broomball is popular in the Canadian province of Manitoba, where Glenella is the Broomball Capital of the World. Broomball is also beginning to become noticed around the world, particularly in the United States, Australia, and Japan.

A typical Broomball ball

In a game of broomball there are two teams, each consisting of six players: a goaltender and 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 aluminum shaft and has a rubber-molded 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.

We have several active teams in Sister Bay, and each team battles each cold Wednesday to win the coveted Teresa K. Highlander Broomball Champion Cup.  Other events include open skating days and evenings, perfect to get out with the family and enjoy some crisp air and exercise.  The Teresa K. Hilander Community Rink will be open for the season in Sister Bay as soon as the weather allows. This is a GREAT facility for outdoor sports and is well loved by the residents of northern Door County. Ice Skating and Broom Ball on Wednesday is a winter tradition in Door County.   This would not be possible without the dedicated work of dozens of unpaid volunteers.

Hope to see you at the rink this winter.  Dress warmly, bring some hot chocolate, and Check out their facebook page HERE.

Why play broom ball when it is the same as ice hockey?

It's not as easy as it seems, although it is similar.  Running on the ice is much harder than skating; you need special shows, and there is less precision with the broom rather than a stick.  It's a TON of fun to watch, though.
