WELCOME TO OUR 2019 SEASON…OUR 6TH SEASON RUNNING!
Welcome to our 6th season of the North East Premier League! Our Adult League is full-field and coed allowing up to (3) men on the field at once with goalies being gender neutral. Although it is referred as "Adult League", it is specific to non-NCAA players. College students are allowed to play, even those on a club team. In the spirit of promoting adult field hockey, including active NCAA coaches, college players in current Varsity teams or upcoming high school players that would create a perceived violation of NCAA compliance are not allowed. NEPL has established a firm rule on this matter. To those players this rule unfortunately may impact, we look forward to your post-NCAA playing days and hope to have you for many many years!
We are expecting our fields to be both at Harvard and Boston University fields this coming season. We anticipate announcing the confirmed schedule by the end of February.
North East Premier League (NEPL) is a nonprofit field hockey league with a simple mission: To provide a competitive adult (non-NCAA) field hockey league in Boston and to promote the sport in our community. We hope you agree we are accomplishing this each season!
