Teams that do not hit the 12-player minimum roster size will be placed in the free agent pool. Free agents can be used to supplement other teams who fall short of the mark, i.e. combine teams, or stay together with multiple towns to create a Free Agent team.
We strongly encourage every roster to have a goalie. If your goalie is unable to attend from time to time you will be provided one of the HGR goalies on staff.
Every game has two patched officials and an official scorekeeper.
All teams are guaranteed 8 weeks of games. However, the last two weeks of the season are playoffs. If you don’t qualify for playoffs or are eliminated in the first round you will receive consolation games.
Our forfeit policy will be strictly enforced this year. If you forfeit a game you are not eligible for playoffs. If you forfeit two games you are not eligible for the second session of the league. There is nothing worst than showing up to a field excited to play and the other team no-shows.

2022-23 marks the 15th year of the HGR Indoor Lacrosse League. In 2019 we broke our participation record with over 1,000 players running across 3 facilities. This year we anticipate an even bigger turnout and are excited to announce our new state of the art facility, Teamworks Winchester.
The number of participants assures one thing – Competition. Not just competition, but the appropriate level of competition for you and your team. Our A and B Bracket format ensures close, competitive and safe game every week for every team.
The number of years we’ve been doing this assures another thing – we know what we’re doing. Running a league of this volume takes a lot of administrative work to run smoothly. Our games get off on time, our standings are fair and accurate, our communication is second to none.
We don’t coach the league. Kids spend enough time getting coached nowadays. Our goal is to provide the absolute best sandlot lacrosse experience we can, and let the players play however they like.
We guarantee goalies. We hire “on-call” goalies each week so if a team shows up without a goalie, they’re not left shooting on a trash can. Nothing kills the competitiveness of a game faster than not having a keep between the pipes! We’ve eliminated this problem.
Beautiful state-of-the-art facilities. Both Home Grown Indoor Sports in North Andover and Teamworks Winchester have brand new field turf where players are welcome to wear cleats and never have to worry about turf burn from the older, less forgiving turfs.
Safety on the field. We provide two patched officials at every game to ensure a safe playing environment.
Cross-Facility playoff format. The top two teams from each division qualify for playoffs and the 1 seed hosts the 2 seed in their division at their home facility for the final four. If you don’t qualify for playoffs you are still guaranteed 8
