Taking players to the next level – this is what started the New England Select Lacrosse League.
NESLL was founded in 2002 by two lacrosse dads who were looking for a place for their passionate lacrosse sons to change the level of their game. Ken Allis and Mark Muscatello began this non-profit organization as a way to keep the fire burning for the game of lacrosse.
After six years, NESLL has grown to encompassing over 80 towns, 2500 players and over 50 venues. This is unique in lacrosse- an opportunity for boys and girls to participate in a game they love near where they live at a level that fits their passion for lacrosse.
The league is managed by an executive director along with a boy’s director and girl’s director, a director of coaches and a full time administrative assistant. Overseeing these paid employees is the Board of Directors which is comprised of members of the New England Lacrosse Community both knowledgeable in the game of lacrosse and committed to the continued success of NESLL. The Board will also contain members of the professional community that will help the organization in the areas of non-profit fund raising, business management and business development.
Sportsmanship, competition and fair play are the cornerstones of the League. Coaches are recruited throughout New England from some of the best lacrosse programs and schools in the area. Our coaches are capable of teaching our talented youth players in a positive manner and have demonstrated a clear “love for the game”. All youth coaches are US Lacrosse Level I Certified, have been CPR/ First Aid Certified and all have been CORI checked. Our summer coaches are US Lacrosse Level I and II Certified, have been CPR/First Aid Certified and all have been CORI checked.
Our first priority is our players- and we insist on a high level of playing, coaching and officiating.
The mission of the New England Select Lacrosse League (NESLL) is to help players reach the next level in the sport of lacrosse. NESLL was created to provide an opportunity and venue for highly competitive student/athletes to play lacrosse at a higher level. Sportsmanship, competition and fair play are the cornerstones of the League. NESLL is intended to enhance the quality of lacrosse in New England and showcases that quality to the lacrosse community at large.
Our philosophy is that active participation on a competitive team combined with an established coaching staff will provide student/athletes college exposure while developing lifetime skills such as leadership, teamwork and good sportsmanship.

College Recruitment Program
NESLL is recognized by all of the major college lacrosse coaches as a source for great players. It is our mission to assist all of our players to achieve their goals to play collegiate lacrosse. We will educate the players and parents on the recruiting process, including “Do’s and Don’ts” of contacting coaches. We will also provide a player profile booklet to coaches at each of our tournaments with all of the players pertinent information. And finally, we will help each player find the right “fit” both athletically and academically.
