Mass Bay Girls Lacrosse League (MBGLL) is a Sunday afternoon recreational program located in Eastern Massachusetts. We organize and operate a program for more than 10,000 young girls' lacrosse players. In 2016 we had 80 different towns represented with over 400 teams in 1st through 8th grade. MBGLL started the MBGLL Select League during the 2010-2011 season to offer U13 and U15 players the opportunity to compete at a higher level of competition on their town's team. Our mission is to promote girls' youth lacrosse in an environment that emphasizes fun, while developing skills, teamwork, good sportsmanship, and integrity.
Hello MBGLL Towns. Below are some reminders about upcoming important dates and events.
Registration closes on January 14 for Recreational Registrations. A $50 late fee begins on January 15. Please note that paying a late fee does not guarantee that you will receive a schedule.
It is best for everyone involved if you only register teams which you are sure that you are going to have enough players for. Registrations are non-refundable. If you end up with enough players to add an extra team, please do so and simply pay the $50 late fee. Backing a team out of the schedule is much more difficult from a scheduling standpoint than it is to add a team.
To register a team, you must first volunteer to help MBGLL with one small task throughout the season. To sign up for a volunteer position, please go to mbgll.org and click on the VOLUNTEER POSITIONS button. Once you have volunteered for a position, you will receive the registration links via a separate email.
Pre-scheduling meetings are mandatory. During these meetings we are going to ensure that your fields are loaded into MBGLL’s system. Towns are permitted to submit up to two blackout dates. We also plan to ensure that the correct contacts are listed with MBGLL. Further, we are going to develop the scheduling pools at these meetings. So, as you can see, you don’t want to miss your division’s meeting. Meeting details are listed on the calendar on MBGLL.org’s home page.
