North East Premier (NEPL) is a recognized 501(3)(c) nonprofit field hockey league. Our mission is simple:

To provide a competitive post-collegiate league in Boston and to promote the sport in our Boston-area community.

We started our first year in 2014 with six Post-Collegiate teams and grew to eight this past 2015 season. This new upcoming 2016 season, we are opening up a Collegiate pick-up night! Check out the "Collegiate" tab above for details.

The camaraderie between my teammates and I, and the rest of the league, is great. Everyone is on the same page, and super thankful for the opportunity.

Going from playing and practicing six times a week in college to just stopping completely was very tough for me. Field hockey is a big part of my life, and I’m so happy I get to continue to play in a competitive league.
