Dear Town Director,
In 2014, the league came together in spectacular fashion to give 44 of our athletes the opportunity of a lifetime. The Mass Bay Colonials were formed and trained together before traveling to Denver for the World Lacrosse Championships. For the summer of 2016, we are creating another Colonials experience. This will truly be a league-wide event that will unite the town programs. We are asking a lot from you, but we have the opportunity to provide a truly unique experience for many of the very special athletes in our league.
Please begin by passing along this document to all rising U13 and U15 players in your town program. It is a 6-page PDF which explains what the Colonials are about and what our plans will be for 2016. It includes an FAQ section for both town director and interested player.
We will be asking each town director to nominate athletes. An explanation of what that will entail, how it will be done, and when it needs to be done by are on the first two pages of the document.
We're also looking for potential tryout sites for late September and are trying to secure facilities in the northern region, the southern region, and the central/west region to make it as easy on our players as possible. Please let us know if you can assist us in securing your town field/complex.
We're also seeking coaches (head and assistant) as well as team managers and evaluators. Anyone who has an interest in learning more and applying, there is a form for that we'll ask you to share with your coaches.
Thank you for taking the serious time and commitment we are asking of you to help spread the word, participate in our process, and support us. This is a not-for-profit enterprise designed to be supplemental to our spring league and augmenting the philosophy and mission of MBYLL. It's not about the organizers... but the athletes and the towns they represent. For any questions (I'm sure there are a million), please contact me directly at
Here is the form for the Town Director to nominate an athlete to attend tryouts:
