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

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


  • 2014 Launched the co-ed league with only 6 teams

  • 2015 Featured on The Boston Globe. Grew league to 8 teams

  • 2016 Launched our Dirty Water Tournament, which is a standalone co-ed tournament around the 4th of July weekend. 

  • 2017 Partnered with USFHL (National League) sending our 2017 Champions to the 2018 Nationals for the first time

  • 2018 Expanded season by 2 weeks and increased game minutes of semi-final and championship games. Our ‘17 Champs participated at Nationals held in Philadelphia, PA.

2019 GOALS

  • Grow to 10 teams (from 8). Engage more and new individuals to join.

  • Semi-final and Finals games per FIH rules. They will now be 60 min with (4) minute periods.

  • Host same gender “Invitational” games

  • Start Scholarship Fund for FH teams to travel and participate in out-of-area tournaments

  • Indoor League for 2019-20 Season

  • Improve our communication throughout the year


We are committed to keeping the league as affordable as possible and with our continued rental fee increases, the Board continues to find creative ways to keep expanding our field hockey reach at the same time maintaining the fees relatively constant.

Our 2019 fundraising target is $5,000.

ADULT (non-ncaa) LEAGUE:

  • Players without any NCAA conflicts or that have exhausted their eligibility

  • 11 v 11 format (full field) with standard FIH rules

  • 50 minute games weekly with (2) 25 minute halves

  • Games are mostly on Tuesdays & Thursdays

  • Two officials per game (rated Level II and up)

  • Three (3) field men allowed on the field (goalies do not count towards the tally)

  • Top 8 teams (out of 10) qualify for playoffs



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
