Curling & Broomball Leagues Underway!

The campus Ice Rink is open now through January 30, 2022, and Campus Recreation is making the most of it by offering Broomball and Curling leagues Monday - Thursday evenings for members of the campus community! Registration for either sport is only $40/team, and teams are scheduled for one 30-minute game per week.

No previous experience is necessary and all equipment is provided, so participants just need to dress for the weather. And since both sports are played in regular shoes on the ice, you can skip the skates altogether!

CLICK HERE to register now!

Intramural UPDATE:

New team registration has been extended through December 17, 2021 for the Intramural Curling and Broomball leagues.
