A Field Hockey League...
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.
Why play in this league?
We are the only field hockey league in the area with FIH rules in an 11 v. 11 full-field format. We play on wet astro and we bring you the top NCAA officials to keep the game safe and fun for everyone. Not only do we keep track of the score, the top teams will compete to become League Champions and earn a bid to Nationals!
Besides the field hockey itself, we pride ourselves in our sense of community. The members of this league are genuine friendly people and make this league a great time!
How much is it?
POST-COLLEGIATE DIVISION: The total team fee is $3,000. There is a $600 deposit to hold one of the eight team spots. The rest of the balance will be due on the first game ($2,400). This includes regular season games plus the Top 8 teams qualify to playoffs. Fee includes the increased cost of the field, officials as well as a colored jersey and matching socks.
Who can play?
ADULT (NON-NCAA) DIVISION: Anyone who has exhausted their NCAA eligibility or have no conflict thereof. Basically, we want coaches to be able to play if they want and not have any issues. We are also open to both women and men; however, we limit the number of men on the field to a maximum of three (3) in order to keep things even. Goalies do not count towards the tally.
Referees / Officials
Thanks to the number of field hockey programs in the area, we are able to reach out to top-ranked officials. This is great! Keeping the game safe and fun are a priority.
