INTERSTATE BOX LACROSSE ASSOCIATION
The Interstate Box Lacrosse Association (IBLA) is the nation’s largest adult box lacrosse league. The IBLA was formed to ultimately unify the system of Regional Box Lacrosse Leagues (RBLL) around the country. Each RBLL is its own state-wide league for the senior level of lacrosse for ages 18+ players. All RBLL’s in each state use the same set of rules and follow similar regular season and playoff structures. These commonalities across all RBLL’s is what brought the unification of the IBLA. In addition, the winner of each RBLL region each season, is granted the prestigious spot to compete in the IBLA Nationals. They play against the winner of each region within the IBLA network across the country.
In 2019 the IBLA became official partners with the National Lacrosse League. IBLA players, coaches, and officials now are able to have an opportunity to make the jump to the NLL.
The original state that started it all was RBLL Colorado. After an extremely successful inaugural season in 2016, RBLL Colorado expanded to four teams for the 2017 season. After seeing the huge amount of success and publicity that the league was receiving, a number of states showed interest in becoming the next RBLL state. After doing a lot of state-wide lacrosse and facility research, RBLL Minnesota was formed as it was seen as the state with the best facilities and player interest. Soon after, the IBLA expanded to the East Coast with RBLL- New England and RBLL- New Jersey, starting play in 2018. RBLL- Ohio and RBLL-Missouri were added in the midwest as well. In 2019, the IBLA added RBLL- Nebraska, and RBLL- California. During the offseason before the upcoming 2020 season, RBLL- Pennsylvania, RBLL- Michigan, RBLL- Empire North, and RBLL- Southeast were added.
With seventeen regions in operation, the IBLA provides a national system and an organizing committee to host a national championship every year. Nationals rotates to different locations each year.
The 2019 IBLA National Championships were hosted in California. In 2020 it was held in Pittsburgh, hosted by RBLL- Pennsylvania. Also in 2020, the IBLA developed IBLA 3’s, a 3v3 half floor version of box lacrosse providing an exciting new version of the game, while growing the sport in new and existing regions. Starting in 2021, the IBLA has five new regions including RBLL- Louisiana, RBLL- Florida,
RBLL- Texas, RBLL- Maryland, and RBLL- Empire South.

Breaking: PLL and MLL to Merge, Unifying Pro Outdoor Lacrosse Leagues
The Premier Lacrosse League and Major League Lacrosse are merging.
The news was first reported by Sportico Wednesday morning.
The merger ends the era of two dueling operations and cements PLL as the sole pro field lacrosse league. The PLL will add the expansion Cannons LC as its eight team, rebranding MLL’s Boston Cannons. MLL players — Lyle Thompson among the most noteworthy — will enter the PLL’s Player Pool.

“Over the past two years the PLL has punched through expectations and garnered commercial viability that the sport has never seen,” said Paul Rabil to Sportico. “Today, as the PLL embarks on season three, we do so armed with 20 years of MLL history.”
The news was met with praise Wednesday:
A huge step forward for lacrosse. https://t.co/UChLArhQRi

In a news release, PLL said they “have created an internal team that will oversee the success of the transition, including: front office, team and player orientation; the 2021 season schedule, which will include former MLL team markets; and a long-term plan to develop youth lacrosse players in historical MLL communities.”
The deal closes out MLL’s 20-year run — an important era in the sport in which the league was responsible from elevating lacrosse from post-collegiate club to pro aspirations.
MLL Commissioner Sandy Brown emailed players Wednesday morning; a copy was obtained by IL:
In just a few moments, MLL will announce a merger with PLL. As you have all been witness, some for the entirety of the existence of this league and more, most recently, I think you can agree that the narrative on our sport has increased dramatically in the last several years, which, no surprise, has contributed to my view that the runway for lacrosse is a long one, and I am greatly heartened by the future of our sport.
In all honesty, there is not any one reason that led us to this merger. I have been public in stating that given the overall size of the lacrosse market, there is not room for two outdoor lacrosse leagues. From an economics perspective, COVID or not, collectively, both managements came to this realization that we are better as one.
As you can appreciate, this year has been exceptionally difficult for everyone in the sports business; however, it is ironic, that in spite of everything that we dealt with, MLL had one of its most successful seasons ever. From the success of the Draft to our shortened bubble season, our engagement generated over 150mm impressions, which was far and away, an MLL record. As importantly, we took great steps this year to be responsive to the social issues of which we were all apart, and I would like to acknowledge our MLL 4-Chad, Kris, Mark and Isaiah-for the impact that they have had on us all, and their contributions to MLL, and the sport, in general.
There are many questions that are yet to be answered as we work through the transition, which will begin in earnest in early January. That said, I am available to field any questions that you might have, and you will be receiving regular updates from me as we work to complete the merger.
In the meantime, I wish all of you, and your families, a safe and happy holiday season.
Nick Sakiewicz, commissioner of the National Lacrosse League, said Wednesday: “A united front for outdoor lacrosse makes great sense for our sport, and as we have said consistently from the beginning, we can all grow best by working together and we will continue to maintain and expand our relationships across the global lacrosse ecosystem. We congratulate our colleagues at the PLL and the MLL on their announcement today and with them, we are looking forward to a healthy and prosperous 2021 new year, with additional great news for the box game coming soon as well.”
Major League Lacrosse has a robust and important history to the sport with ups and downs throughout its 20-year history.
In 2000 — in the wake of an influential World Lacrosse Championship in Baltimore — MLL started as a traveling showcase to gauge fan and investor interest. It’s first season began a year later with six teams, the backing of Warrior and the Lizards winning the inaugural title.
From there, some of the most storied teams in lacrosse history were assembled — like the 2005 Bayhawks regarded as the best pro team ever.
Westward expansion followed, but it was short-lived besides the Denver Outlaws, which became one of the league’s marquee franchises. In 2009, the LXM Pro Tour launched, serving as a travelling, event-based model with some high-profile players including Kyle Harrison and Joe Walters. The two entities announced a partnership in 2014.
A highlight of the league’s 20-year history occurred in 2011, when the Boston Cannons won their first championship amid Hurricane Irene. That game was dubbed an ESPN Instant Classic. That was Rabil’s first pro outdoor title.
The early 2010s featured some positive years for the league. Ohio and Charlotte became expansion franchises, the league opened up other companies to become sponsors of the league ‚ opening up the gates for the likes of STX, Maverik and others. The Florida Launch were formed after moving from Hamilton, and the Atlanta Blaze were founded.
Then, starting the mid-2010s a series of events altered the perception of the league. In 2016, Lax Sports Network launched with the backing of some MLL owners, taking the exclusive broadcast rights of the league. There was a growing chorus of public player unhappiness, mostly with the lack of exposure the league provided through broadcast and social media, but also in regard to playing conditions. Dave Gross announced he was stepping down in December of 2016 but stayed on for another year and half before becoming president of LSN.
August of 2017 was a massive blow to the league when an MLL data mismanagement incident exposed player personal information to the public. It was in the wake of this that Rabil met with MLL leadership about purchasing the league, which did not engage at the time, before he announced the formation of the PLL in September pf 2018.
In 2019, the two leagues were set to co-exist, though three of the teams owned by New Balance founder Jim Davis ceased operations prior to the MLL season. Davis’ sole remaining team, the Dallas Rattlers, shut down after 2019 campaign, signaling his completed divestment from MLL.
In 2020, under Sandy Brown’s leadership, the league reverted back to a single-entity ownership model. A private investor group headed by the Lizards ownership group and Cannons majority owner Rob Hale were at the forefront.
MLL played this summer as a six-team league in Annapolis amid the pandemic, but the gameplay was overshadowed by positive COVID-19 tests that shook up the championship, as well as the league’s handling of statements by its Black players.
The league will retain the rights to MLL’s other five teams.
“Our vision has always been to unify the sport,” PLL CEO Mike Rabil told Sportico. “We know this will bring a better commercial opportunity for the sport, for the league and for the players, and will bring more excitement on the field for the fans.”
Full news release from PLL
LOS ANGELES (December 16, 2020) – The Premier Lacrosse League (“PLL”) and Major League Lacrosse (“MLL”) have merged with subsequent season operations and activities to formally exist under the Premier Lacrosse League.
As part of the merger, the PLL will immediately expand to include the Boston Cannons as the PLL’s eighth team, under the rebranded name Cannons Lacrosse Club. The Cannons Lacrosse Club roster will be entirely selected through an Expansion Draft in 2021. Additionally, the PLL will retain the rights to all of the former MLL teams for future expansion considerations.
The PLL and MLL have created an internal team that will oversee the success of the transition, including: front office, team and player orientation; the 2021 season schedule, which will include former MLL team markets; and a long-term plan to develop youth lacrosse players in historical MLL communities.
In the coming months, details will be announced regarding the 2021 Expansion Draft, as well as more information on how transitioning MLL players may enter the PLL Player Pool.
MLL Commissioner, Sandy Brown, explained, “this merger only benefits the future of the game, for it combines the history of professional lacrosse with an innovative approach that has already accelerated the game’s growth. Further, the major market commercial opportunities are at their infancy. The runway for a combined effort is robust.”
PLL co-founder and CEO, Mike Rabil, responded saying, “the unification of PLL and MLL puts the game first by providing our athletes and fans a single destination for the best lacrosse in the world, across every medium, coming this Summer 2021 on NBC Sports. I can’t think of anything better and more exciting for the sport.”
PLL co-founder and CMO, Paul Rabil, stated, “the PLL and MLL partnership is a massive step forward for professional lacrosse. Merging the two organizations and removing some of the challenges that athletes, sponsors and fans faced will undoubtedly advance the game forward. This one’s particularly nostalgic for me and a number of PLL players given that we began our careers and played in championship games with MLL prior to the PLL’s launch. Today and forever we share in that history and continue to build the future of pro lacrosse together.”
The Premier Lacrosse League is a men’s professional lacrosse league in North America, composed of 7 teams rostered with the best players in the world. Co-founded by lacrosse superstar and investor, Paul Rabil, and his brother, serial entrepreneur and investor, Mike Rabil, the Premier Lacrosse League is backed by an investment group composed of Joe Tsai Sports, Brett Jefferson Holdings, The Raine Group, Creative Artists Agency (CAA), and other top investors in sports and media. The PLL was named Sports Breakthrough of the Year in 2020 by the Sports Business Journal and is distributed through an exclusive media-rights agreement with NBC Sports Group.

Men’s Box Lacrosse League in Monmouth County, NJ
Ten Advantages of Playing Box Lacrosse
10. FASTER PLAY
The speed is way faster than anything you would see outdoors. It makes playing outside seem like going in slow motion
9. STICK HANDLING
Playing in closer spaces means your stick skills have to be tighter and quicker. Your stick handling improves because there is no room for error, quite literally.
Ball moves from defense to offense with increased speed. Players learn quickly to breakout and move the ball up the field.
7. DEFENSIVE BODY POSITION
No D-Poles means that defensive players have to use good body position to be successful.
6. OFF-BALL MOVEMENT
Playing in such a tight area means it is that much harder to get open. Running through people to go to goal just doesn’t work. Players learn to cut, pick and keep in constant motion.
5. GOALIES SEE MORE RUBBER
Shots come hard and fast. Goalies see more shots in a shorter period of time. Their hands and reaction time become much quicker.
4. SHOOTING ACCURACY
Gary Gait is among many who have gone on record about the shooting accuracy that comes from playing box lacrosse.
3. REACTION TIME
Almost every point made deals with faster speeds. A byproduct of playing faster is you have to react faster. That means faster to a ground ball, faster in transition, faster to play the ball, faster to shoot the ball. You name it, your reaction to it get faster.
2. PLAYER SAFETY
When it comes to pre-season training, the goal is to get better for the Spring season, not get hurt. Many indoor facilities boast full fields, which ultimately are surrounded by some sort of netting. As one of the area’s top orthopedic doctors pointed out, the box is a safer playing surface. There is nothing to get tripped up on and in to.
1. PROVEN SUCCESS
You can list as many of the benefits as you want, but the proof is in the success that box players have. Look at the most successful players over the last decade. The majority play box in the off season. Paul Rabil, Casey Powell, the Gait brothers . No matter who you identify with, the common thread is that they have or still do play box lacrosse.

The Maine Northerners made it to the top spot in the playoffs, beating the Louisville Canards 17-14 in the final game.
Due to the spread of COVID-19, most teams were faced with reduced season schedules and the league championship tournament venue was moved from Boston to Pittsburgh. By the end of the summer, 10 regions were able to become division champions. Teams from these 10 regions were invited to compete in the IBLA National League Championship.

90,000 Moscow coach is ready to contribute to the development of the lacrosse team in Vologda
Coach of one of the country’s oldest lacrosse teams “ Moscow lacrosse club ” Valentin Sosnov expressed his readiness to come to Vologda and teach the local team the basics of this sport.
Lacrosse is a contact American team ball and stick game. In Russia, the mention of lacrosse is rare: you can count on one hand the teams that play this game professionally – one male team in Moscow
and St. Petersburg. And it is important for the Lacrosse Federation in Russia to promote this sport: its representatives regularly travel to other cities with all equipment, their own gates and teach new teams free of charge lacrosse.
Master classes have already been held in Yaroslavl, Perm, St. Petersburg, Zhukovsky and other cities.The mentor of the Moscow lacrosse club team and member of the Council of the Russian Lacrosse Federation Valentin Sosnov told the Vologda.RF correspondent that after such master classes, the coaches follow the further development of new teams, help them, invite them to competitions that are mostly held Abroad. For example, the next championship will be held in Serbia.
At such master classes, athletes are taught how to use a stick, handle the ball, and make passes. Usually mentors, often Valentin Sosnov himself and Yevgeny Arkhipov, president of the Lacrosse Federation in Russia, come for 1-2 days off. Classes can be periodic: for example, if the training process requires it, mentors will come once a month.
Valentin Sosnov expressed his readiness to come to our city if we recruit a team of initiative young people (the team can be women, men, children) interested in the development of lacrosse in Vologda. You can start training with a team of 4 people from the age of six. For classes, a gym or field and equipment are required: at the initial stages, only a ball and a club.
“We will come and show everything. We will bring equipment, but we will not be able to leave it. The International Lacrosse Federation sent us a huge number of clubs and balls, but they are now stuck in Latvia due to the coronavirus pandemic, and until the borders are opened, we will not be able to take all of this. But if by the time the inventory is at our disposal, there are interested persons in Vologda, we will be able to send them, for example, 10 clubs and balls, ”says Valentin Sosnov.
The coach notes that the beginning of classes does not require a high level of physical fitness, but it develops the back muscle corset well. The Vologda City Administration notes that the development of lacrosse in the regional capital can have a positive effect on the level of involvement of Vologda residents in sports.
“To form a lacrosse team in Vologda – and initiative is interesting in any case. And any new or, more precisely, not very popular sports, at least deserve to be presented to the residents of our city.The main thing is that according to the results there are like-minded people who are ready to contribute to the development of lacrosse or another sport in our city. On the other hand, Russian President Vladimir Putin set a task: by 2024, 55% of the country’s residents should go in for sports. The more opportunities Vologda residents have for doing sports, the better ”, – commented Dmitry Zhobakas, Head of the Department of Physical Culture and Mass Sports of Vologda.
We will add that representatives of the Russian Lacrosse Federation come to Vologda with a master class, the initiative group needs to gather a team of those who wish, find a gym or other training ground and write about this to Valentina Sosnov on the social network.
