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 opened up the College Pick-Up Nights and created the Dirty Water Tournament.
