LetÕs say you are in a small townÉin the middle of the Mojave DesertÉand you really wanna doing some ice skatingÉwhat do you do? Check this one out.
Call up a nearby ice skating rink (most larger cities now have them) and reserve it for your group. Take your entire group and play Broom Hockey. Students do not need to be hockey players to play this version. They use their sneakers instead of skates, brooms instead of hockey sticks, and a tennis ball instead of a puck.
The rules from hockey can suffice. Have a ref that knows what they are.
NOTE: This fun activity can stand on its own as an eventÉor it can be part of a youth ministry lock-in. Most rinks are open late into the night. If you are looking for something to Òfill the time,Ó try this one.
