OVERVIEW

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

To provide a competitive post-collegiate (non-NCAA) league in Boston and to promote field hockey within our community.
 

We started our first year in 2014 with six Post-Collegiate teams and grew to eight teams. We have since created the Dirty Water Tournament, which is a standalone co-ed tournament around the 4th of July weekend.

DIRTY WATER TOURNAMENT:


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.

Just want to say THANK YOU for the NEPL. With my second summer in Boston I honestly feel so lucky to have the opportunity to play competitive hockey every week. I lived in Philly for many years and while there were pick ups there was never anything JUST for those of us who are finished with our college career. It is FUN, keeps us oldies in a bit better shape (or we like to think that) and we get to do what we love.

For those of us who play for the love of the game, thank YOU for making it possible
