Jenn Salsich Hired as Director of Girls Lacrosse

(August 23, 2021 - Natick, MA) -- Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League (MBYLL) announced today the hiring of Jenn Salsich as Director of Girls Lacrosse, according to MBYLL Board President Jim Dalton. This follows last month’s announcement that the new Girls League MBYLL will be administering beginning in 2022.

“The board is thrilled to have Jenn be our first Director of Girls Lacrosse. We wanted someone who had experience with the girl’s game as a player and experience coaching on the town level. Jenn not only met those standards, but her collegiate outreach and her professional background made her a perfect candidate to lead our new girl’s league,” said Jim Dalton, MBYLL Board President.

“It’s funny; I feel like I have been working my whole life for this role,” said Jenn Salsich, Director of Girls Lacrosse. “I’m honored to work with the existing MBYLL community and the incredible girls’ programs throughout the state to provide our girls equal access to fields, educated coaches and referees, equipment resources, and holistic athlete development. We have a lot of work to do. Still, this non-profit model at MBYLL has continually demonstrated its ability to deliver strong results across our state, and I look forward to bringing that same level of success to our girls’ programs.”

Salsich has been a volunteer coach and board member with Swampscott Nahant Youth Lacrosse for the past two years and served as the Assistant Regional Director for the Northeast Region of MBYLL. Jenn’s husband Joe, a former Wake Forest Football player, also coaches for SNYL, and their three children play in the program: Cal (U11), Gigi (U9), and Ward (U7).

Salsich is a Massachusetts native who grew up playing girls’ youth lacrosse in Sandwich and Duxbury. Upon entering her Sophomore year, she attended Deerfield Academy as a three-sport athlete playing field hockey, ice hockey, and lacrosse. Salsich accepted a full-ride scholarship to the University of Oregon as a member of their inaugural women’s D1 lacrosse team in 2005.

“A major reason I decided to commit to playing at Oregon was that I would have a hand in growing the sport of lacrosse to local suburban and rural towns throughout the states of Oregon, California, and Washington. Our coach committed that we would run clinics year after year and mentor young athletes to grow the game with a “westward expansion”.”

Salsich was voted a captain as a freshman and had a successful career as a midfielder and top goal scorer throughout her four-year career. Salsich earned academic All-American accolades all four years and graduated from the Lundquist College of Business Honors Program with her BA in Business.

Salsich began her professional career working in lacrosse and team sports for Nike as an intern in their Adrenaline program. She then accepted a position with STX, the leading lacrosse equipment manufacturer in the industry. Salsich worked as a territory manager for STX based out of Denver, CO.  Here, she coached youth girls lacrosse and continued her commitment to growing the game through skills and coaching clinics and equipment donation programs. Throughout her tenure at STX, Salsich also spent a year as the Nike Brand Manager and a few years as a National Sales Director, where she managed online sales partners.

After her third child, Salsich left STX and decided to run her own business. She then got involved in her local SNYL lacrosse organization as her children began to play.

The MBYLL Director of Girls Lacrosse will have a significant role in shaping the new girl’s youth lacrosse league. Over the coming months, Salsich will lead the efforts in recruiting member town programs to join the league and will oversee identifying local volunteers to fill critical positions on regional and state-wide committees and board positions. She will develop the game operations manual and oversee the development of the MBYLL Girls Coach Education Curriculums, both in concert with girls’ town program leaders.

One of the driving factors for MBYLL to begin a girls league was to provide equal & inclusive access along with needed resources, enrichment funds, and advocacy for girls community-based youth lacrosse programs throughout Massachusetts. Salsich will be the key figure in ensuring the needed resources are obtained and used to best provide more opportunities for girls to play lacrosse in the town they live in. She will also ensure opportunities for girls youth lacrosse players, coaches, and families are provided, including discounts on equipment, access to skills and education clinics, creating special events for girls lacrosse players, and discounts/access to top clinics and camos throughout the offseason.

“I am excited to have Jenn join the growing staff of MBYLL as we not only look to begin a girls league, but also have a dedicated professional staff to provide much-needed services to member towns, coaches, players, and families in our league,” said Kevin Barney, Director of Sales & Marketing. “Jenn’s knowledge of the girls game and the town youth lacrosse landscape will help us create a girls league that meets the need of the experienced towns and players as well as the growing the game with new players and finding new towns to start programs with.”

Town Programs wishing to participate in the MBYLL Girls League for 2022 may register their program now on  Town programs registering both their boys and girls programs with MBYLL for 2022 will see the greatest savings with an annual fee of only $900 for both their boys and girls programs and no team fees for the Classic League. Programs registering by the end of August will receive an early-bird discount of $800.  


About Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League – MBYLL, a non-profit 501 (c)3 organization, was founded in 1992 by a group of town youth lacrosse programs that had the common goal to promote the growth of the game of lacrosse throughout Massachusetts by providing leadership, guidance, training, and structure to anyone interested in lacrosse. Over 95 town programs participate in MBYLL with over 1,000 teams and 12,000 players. In the Spring of 2022, a new Girls League will begin under the MBYLL umbrella for any town program in Massachusetts interested in participating. For more information, visit

New Shoulder Pad Requirement for 2022

A new safety rule begins Jan 1, 2022 with a requirement that all SHOULDER PADS meet a new NOCSAE ND200 requirement. Product compliance with ND200 reduces impact forces and thus the risk of commotio cordi (cardiac arrest due to a blow to the heart area).

This rule standard was put into place on Jan 1, 2021 for GOALIE CHEST PROTECTORS.

All goalie chest protectors AND shoulder pads on our discount page meet this new standard. CLICK HERE to look for shoulder pads and chest protectors.
