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).
