Winter Leagues
Those who are into something a bit more competitive should check out our winter leagues! Starting in January, MetroParks Ice Rink will host competitive and recreational broomball leagues, as well as a curling league.

BroomballBroomball is a team sport where players wear shoes rather than skates and use a “broom” (a stick shaped like a broom) to move the ball around the ice and score goals. Rules and strategies are similar to those of ice hockey. Registration is $290 per team. To register your team, visit www.DaytonBroomball.org/riverscape.

Want to play an Olympic sport? Grab some friends and sign up for our Curling League! This team sport involves sliding heavy, granite stones across the ice toward a marked target while your teammates sweep the ice with brooms to alter its path. Curling is accessible to all physical skill levels and no experience is required. Registration is $400 per team. Visit www.curltroy.org to learn more and to register your team.

For more information about the MetroParks Ice Rink, call the skate office at (937) 278-2607.
