Boston Box League summer session starts in mid-June
The Boston Box Lacrosse League will hold its Summer 2018 session on Tuesday nights at the South Shore Sports Center in Hingham, Mass., beginning June 18 and running through August 6.
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. The size of the league and the exact timing of games will be determined on whether the league features six or eight teams this year; games are at 8:30 and 9:30 p.m., although if demand creates additional teams the start time for the first game would be 7:30 p.m.
The BBLL is a men’s adult league, but allows rising high school seniors in its summer league with parental consent.
Individuals can sign up online at BostonBoxLax.com. If there are players who need to ride together or who need to be placed on the same team, they should let league organizers know, as those requests will be honored.
Summer league session costs are $240 per player; the league will be opened to a limited number of players/teams, signed up on a first-come, first-served basis.
BBLL Summer 2019 will start on June 18 with all players reporting at 8:30 for a skills evaluation and night of open play and training. After that, players will be assigned to teams and regular-season games will commence on June 25, with the season finishing with a championship game in August.
