This is a draft league. In Draft Leagues all players register as individuals, rather than registering an entire team.  Players volunteer to be captains, and then select their teams from the pool of registered players. We closely track player statistics, and offer an evaluation skate for new players, providing captains with as much information as possible for them to draft their teams.

This format allows for league-wide parity -- every team should have a comparable group of players -- and is a great way to meet other players in the area, making it perfect for anyone new to Boston. Rosters turn over every season with the draft, so your former teammates will be future opponents, adding to the competition while cutting down on the chippy or dirty play that is widespread in other leagues.

The evaluation skate and draft will be held one week before the season starts (exact dates and times below). All registered players are welcome to attend the draft to meet the other players and watch as the teams are selected.
