New England’s only men’s box league to host 8-week summer league      The Boston Box Lacrosse League will hold its Summer 2017 session on Tuesday nights at the South Shore Sports Center in Hingham, Mass., beginning June 13 and running through August 8.    The BBLL Summer League is typically heavy with regional collegiate players. Players can come in as individual free agents or in small groups placed together on a squad, or can be entered in the league as part of a pre-organized team. With eight teams expected to play this summer, the seven-game round-robin between squads will begin on June 13, with the top two teams earning spots in the summer championship Aug. 8; the league will be closed for the Independence Day holiday on July 4.    Assuming the league is full at eight teams, game times will be hourly, beginning at 7 p.m. with the last game of each week starting at 10.    The BBLL is a men’s adult league, but allows 17-year-olds in its summer league with parental consent.    Individuals can sign up online at BostonBoxLax.com. Summer league session costs are $200 per player. The league will be opened to a limited number of players/teams, signed up on a first-come, first-served basis.    The fee for a full-team is $3,200 pre-paid (with teams fielding a maximum roster of 22 players over the course of the summer, and not allowed to dress more than 18 players for any individual game).  For full teams or...

The New England Black Wolves invited six players from an open tryout to join their training camp in Trumbull, Conn., November 19 and 20.      Former NLL players Alex Turner and Peter Jacobs, both lefthanded forwards, headline the list of six, who were chosen from among 40 players picked to attend the tryout, which was run at the South Shore Sports Center in Hingham, Mass. by the Boston Box Lacrosse League.    The BBLL, working in conjunction with the Black Wolves, received applications from more than 55 players, from which 40 were selected to participate in the two-hour tryout, which consisted of roughly drills and training led by Black Wolves coaches and National Lacrosse League Hall-of-Famers Tracey Kelusky and Jim Veltman, followed by 70 minutes of high-paced scrimmage time. Black Wolves coach Glenn Clark also spoke with the players before and after players were put through their paces.    “The Boston Box League outdid themselves with this tryout,” said Rich Lisk, Black Wolves general manager. “The level of talent was very impressive and it showed, as we invited six players to our main camp.  We are looking forward to expanding our relationship with the BBLL.”    Turner has six years of NLL experience with five different franchises, and has registered 104 points in 55 career games for Colorado, Edmonton, Philadelphia, Minnesota and San Jose. He played most recently for Colorado in the 2015 season.    Jacobs played two seasons with the defunct Portland Lumberjax, posting 52 points in 27 career...

Player demand results in last-minute expansion before Oct. 11 fall-winter start    The Minutemen – a new team started by veteran local box players – will join the Boston Box Lacrosse League for the fall-winter 2016-17 season, adding more than 20 players and a competitive fifth squad to New England’s home for real box lacrosse.    The BBLL played with five teams a year ago, but when one of those teams announced it would not return, most of its top players were re-distributed to existing teams around the league. There was enough demand from quality new players, however, that BBLL veterans Ryan Conwell and Rich Bernasconi were able to organize the Minutemen.    “This is a demanding league and we want every game to be competitive,” said BBLL founder Randy Fraser. “While any new team coming into the league faces a tall order when it comes to beating the established squads – especially so this year when it appears that every returning team has beefed up its roster – we would not have allowed for expansion if we felt a new team would mean a walk-over every week. The Minutemen face a tall task, no question, but they’re excited to play and we’re excited to have them.”    The Minutemen feature a few displaced veterans from other squads, but also have players with Vermont Voyageurs and Major League Lacrosse experience, as well as a host of exciting new players who were hoping to get a roster spot in the league.   ...

New England pro team partners with Boston Box Lacrosse League in talent search      The New England Black Wolves of the National Lacrosse League will hold an open tryout for players in conjunction with the Boston Box Lacrosse League, at South Shore Sports Center – the home of the BBLL – on Friday, November 18 at 9:30 p.m.    The Black Wolves, who will be playing their third season in New England in 2017, hold an open tryout each year, just before the start of the team’s training camp.    Players will be evaluated at the Friday-night session, with the most promising prospects invited to spend the rest of the weekend – beginning the day after the tryout – working with the Black Wolves in hopes of making the team or the practice squad for 2017.    “We know there is a lot of talent in New England and it makes sense for us to go where the best players from the region are,” said Rich Lisk, Assistant General Manager of the Black Wolves. “The BBLL has a good base group of players, and we have heard from other guys from all over the country who want a shot at making the team. It should make for a competitive and talented tryout.”    The Boston Box Lacrosse League includes a number of players with NLL backgrounds, with experience from the semi-pro Vermont Voyageurs -- who play in the Quebec Senior Lacrosse League during the summer – or in Major League...

New England’s premier men’s box league starts its fifth season in Hingham    The Boston Box Lacrosse League will begin fall-winter play on October 11 at the South Shore Sports Center in Hingham, Mass., with its primary season concluding with a championship contest on January 31.    For the second year in a row, the league will have a combined fall-winter season, with each team playing 12 regular-season games and two playoff contests.    “Going to one longer session last year made things more competitive and stepped up the rivalries, that’s going to continue this year and should make the 2016-17 season our most competitive yet,” said Randy Fraser, the league’s founder. “With just four teams, you are looking at 85 of the best players in the Boston area going at it; most of our games are close and the teams know each other well, which makes it that much more intense.”    The fall-winter 2017-17 session of the Boston Box Lacrosse League will feature four teams: the defending champion Blazers, runners-up Bullseye, the MegaWhales and PrimeTime.     All four teams are organized and run by their captains, so players who want to run in the league must get a spot from a team captain. Players interested in joining the BBLL but who don’t know the captains or who haven’t been invited onto a roster should contact the league by e-mail. Player details are shared regularly with the team captains.    “We’re always looking for players,” Fraser said, “and we’re trying...
