The Summer season is off and running, and we had a good turnout for
I did want to mention a few things, though.
1) I'm extending summer pass purchases to Sunday, June 8th. If you
couldn't make the first week, just pay me then. If you showed up for
week 1 as a weekly payer, but decide you want a season pass, you can
pay the difference ($75) and upgrade to a season pass this Sunday.
After this Sunday, though, no more season passes will be sold.
2) I'd like to try to get us going earlier if possible. Most people
weren't out on the ice until 7:05 or later, so we didn't actually get
to start playing until after 7:10, I believe. Nobody currently has
the ice before us, so if we show up early, we can be out on the ice
warming up a little BEFORE 7pm, and then we can start the game at 7pm
giving us more game time. So, if everyone could try to show up early
enough to be dressed and on the ice before 7pm, that would be great!
If you show up late, pick a jersey color (light or dark) that puts you
on the team with fewer players and walk around the left side of the
ice to the benches.
3) I'm going to be trying to get as many people's names and $ BEFORE
7pm, but if I miss you, make sure you find me after the game so I can
get your name and $ (if you don't have a season pass).
4) Multiple people new to the CBA asked me about equipment. We
sometimes do large equipment orders and get a small discount for the
bulk order, but if you want something immediately, www.broomball.com
is probably your best bet.
5) Just to let newer players know, we call penalties on ourselves as
we see them (because we have no refs). If you do something wrong,
don't panic! Just give the ball to the other team (we don't make
anyone sit in the penalty box over the summer... well, maybe Coyne...)
and ask someone to explain what you did wrong. The most common
"penalties" that you might be called for are off-sides (we play with a
floating blue line which can be a little confusing at first) and high
sticking. You should also be trying not to trip or slash anyone! We
certainly had no problems in week 1, though, so I'm not too worried.
Don't worry, I won't be cluttering up your email with weekly reports
or anything unless there is a scheduling change or something
important. Hopefully I'll see many of you this Sunday, and if you
have any questions that you can't find an answer to at www.cincinnatibroomball.org
don't hesitate to email me!
