Schedule: 7th Annual Midwest Broomball Tournament

Thanks to a last minute addition (Homegrown 280 from MN), our tourney has grown to 9 teams! The schedule is attached along with an info sheet regarding site-specific rules outside of USAB rules.  We will have $900 of prize money awarded ($700 to the upper bracket winner & $200 to the lower bracket winner).
 
THERE WILL BE A ZERO TOLERANCE RULE TOWARDS THE REFS. We are losing refs nationally because it’s not worth their time to call a game only to be ridiculed constantly. Keep your team under control and only the Captain or Assistant Captain(s) shall dispute a call. A minor will be called if verbal abuse is heard from the bench.
 
We will have access to the Broomball Central Live facebook feed to stream the games.  If anyone would like to volunteer to stream a game, please feel free to do so.  The more exposure we can give will help the sport grow!
