(September 13, 2023 - Ashland, MA) -- Massachusetts Youth Lacrosse (MYL) announced today that the 2nd Annual New England Youth Lacrosse Convention, powered by Mass Youth Lacrosse, will be held on Sunday, February 4 at Gillette Stadium, according to MYL Executive Director, Kevin Barney.  The inaugural convention was held this past January with over 500 attendees, 35 speakers and 20 vendors. Convention tickets will go on sale on Monday, September 25 on www.massyouthlax.org .

I am excited to have the New England Youth Lacrosse convention return to Gillette Stadium,” said Barney.  “Mass Youth Lacrosse is committed to providing education, resources and access for our players, parents, coaches and town leaders to the best the sport has to offer. The first-year event was a great success, and we are looking to expand the event to offer more sessions, topics and vendors.”

The New England Youth Lacrosse Convention will be a daylong event with 8-10 session topics every hour. Topics throughout the day will be applicable for parents, new coaches, experienced coaches, town leaders, and anyone who is a fan of the game. There will be two keynote speakers during the day and 30 vendors showcasing the latest in lacrosse on and off the field.

“Gillette Stadium continues to be the pinnacle of lacrosse in New England,” said MYL Board President, Jim Dalton. “From hosting Premier Lacrosse League games each season, to the return of the NCAA Lacrosse Championships in 2025 it’s the perfect venue for the New England Youth Lacrosse Convention. While the event is powered by Mass Youth Lacrosse, we welcome youth lacrosse coaches and town leaders from throughout New England to attend as we all work to grow the game.”

Individual and Town Bulk Tickets will go on sale on September 24.  There will be an early-bird discount price for tickets purchased by October 31. Town programs that purchase 10 tickets will receive an additional 2 tickets at no cost.
