MBYLL hosts one of the largest youth lacrosse jamborees in the country each June at Fort Devens.  With more than 400 teams participating in the end of the Spring season event, it is also a celebration of town based youth lacrosse.  In the past, towns have set up areas for their teams and families to meet and gather between games.  Towns have brought branded tents, banners and flags, in addition to an assortment of food and beverages for their players and families.  This year, towns can be rewarded for setting up the best display showing their town pride.  Each day of the Jamboree, one town will be selected as having the best town pride set up and will win a special prize pack from APEX Entertainment.

“We are excited to partner with APEX Entertainment this season,” said Jim Dalton, President of MBYLL. “They are a perfect fit as a family entertainment center for our 12,000 plus families in MBYLL.  They are supporting numerous areas of MBYLL and we can’t wait to host events and bring our families to APEX.”

APEX has multiple sports simulators, including lacrosse, where you can test your athletic skills.  The facility also has 4,000 square feet of start of the art meeting space where MBYLL will host board meetings and a Coach Certification Clinic.

“We are ecstatic to be involved with such a welcoming, efficient and family friendly organization said Jon Freeman, Community Relations Manager for APEX Entertainment.  “Being at the fields, there was a strong community feel to the entire place, players and families.  I think we are a perfect fit and look forward to bringing that same atmosphere to Apex.”

He was drafted by the Boston Cannons in 2015, was a four year coach at Harvard University, and he currently plays for the Whipsnakes in the Premier Lacrosse League (PLL).

The Face-Off Factory will be providing an Intro to Face-Off video for all MBYLL Coaches and Players, focused towards Level 1/2 coaches who are introducing the position to new players.  The video will also be applicable for Level 3/4 and higher players to reinforce the basics of the face-off.  The Face-Off Factory will also be providing MBYLL coaches and players with access to their private Instagram account with over 100 training and drill videos.

“Having a training partner like the Face-Off Factory is a tremendous asset to our 2,000 volunteer coaches,” said Jim Dalton, President of MBYLL. “Joe Nardella and the Face-Off Factory has been providing coaches and player clinics for us over the past few years and now we are taking the partnership to the next level as we will now provide access to great training videos to all of our coaches and to those players who are excelling at the Face-Off position and seeking higher level of training.”
