The local association held its annual general meeting on Sunday night, where it was decided to hold an open run at 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 16. If the numbers warrant, a two-hour run will be held the following Monday, Oct. 23.
From there, a draft is targeted for Oct. 26, with the regular season beginning on Oct. 30.
The association encourages anyone intending to play this year to attend one of these preseason open runs, or let a member of the executive know directly that they want to play.
An executive was also voted on, which featured no changes from the previous season.
In a new idea, the league will attempt to hold a developmental hour open to junior-aged players, women, and any men who would like to try broomball without committing to the league. The plan is to start that on Nov. 23, at 7:30 p.m. every Monday, with the goal begin a 10-week program, but that will depend on interest.
Anyone with unwanted, but useable broomball gear is being to let the association know if they would be willing to donate it to the developmental program.
The executive for the 2017-18 season:
President: Gary Kean
Vice-president: Eric Young
Treasurer: Leo Blanchard
Secretary: Gregory Baldwin
Statistician/public relations: Ron Hancock
Referee-in-chief: Scott Wayson
Developmental program chair: Chris Walters
*The four team representatives will be determined after the league draft
