I'm curious and I need help and likely some correction with this worldwide broomball census. Looking at league websites this is what I've found for MN/ND teams and players. 500+ teams and an estimate 5,000 players (10 per team). I am definitely missing some, if your league isn't represented consider it your obligation to comment!

FYI - I don't think you can just add up the total for each city/league.  A lot of people play in multiple leagues so you'd be double/triple counting them if you just add up the totals.  The teams number is probably pretty close, but the total players is probably a lot less than what you have.

Tony, fair enough, but I'll need some numbers. How many players in MN/ND play on more than one team? I agree there are multiple team players, however I believe that to be the exception, not the norm. Elite, highly committed guys and gals will show up on multiple rosters, but the average outdoor player either doesn't have the time or desire to commit multiple evenings to the sport.

I chose 10 for the average players per team because of what I've seen with outdoor play, which is where 90% of squads play in the Twin Cities.

Thanks Tmcguigan! Are the teams, men, women or corec? I'm assuming you play indoors, is that correct?

Indoors, teams are coed and done via draft. We do have more players in the city but thats about what we average per season. From there we make travel teams for various tournaments.

Columbus, IN has a 9-team indoor co-rec league with about 120 players.

 

My alma mater, Michigan Tech University, has mens, womens, co-rec outdoor league with over hundred teams.  Its jut not seen as competitive broomball though as they can't use any commercially made broomball sticks or shoes and play on miniature rinks.   http://www.broomball.mtu.edu/

Tom, that is quite a league! What's the reasoning behind the build-your-own-broom? I'm assuming cost, or possibly safety??

I took a look at the league site, any idea which divisions are men's, which are women's and which are corec?
