The spring lacrosse season is the core product of the New England Select Lacrosse League. Two divisions - NESLL-Black for the top, select level players; and NESLL-Blue for the top tier two level players. The spring leagues will feature Boys U13, Boys U15 and Girls U15 divisions. Regional teams will be formed in Eastern Massachusetts, Southern NH and Rhode Island.
Teams are selected through a series of Fall regional tryouts, where each prospective candidate needs to attend one of the sessions. NESLL will utilize a pool of judges comprised of coaches and players from the professional, college and high school ranks, supplemented with knowledgeable lacrosse parents. The players will be judged on series of skills and game situation drills. Based on the judges scoring, the organizers will form team rosters at the Boys U13, Boys U15 and Girls U15 levels.
