The South Central Division, is comprised of 16 towns, 101 teams, and over ~1600 players. Recently a committee was formed and funded to investigate opportunities to enrich the experience for our players and families. With a portion of these funds, the Enrichment Committee has negotiated a partnership with the Premier Lacrosse League and Kraft Sports and Entertainment to provide our kids and families special access to the weekend’s events, along with recognition opportunities for Players, Coaches and Ofﬁcials in the weeks leading up to the event. This partnership includes weekly recognition from each South Central town program, that all culminates at Gillette Stadium for on ﬁeld recognition and an amazing weekend of lacrosse. For each of the 16 towns in our region, this program honors a “Player of the week”, a “Rookie of the Week” for our ﬁrst-year players, “Coach of the Week”, and “Outstanding Ofﬁcials” award for which we would recognize this group of people during the June 1 games at halftime or between during pre-game festivities.
Additional activities for those recognized include:
• On-ﬁeld recognition for all recipients, including special stadium and pre-game access.
• PLL coaches meet the MBYLL recognized Coaches before the games to discuss the impacts a coach can have on young men.
• Ofﬁcials meet with the PLL game Ofﬁcials before the games to discuss the values of ofﬁciating and to encourage them to continue serving the game.
• PLL player attend a practice of each of the South Central region towns in honor of “Player of the Week” in each town. This could either be during the month of May leveraging local PLL players or the week leading up to June 1 and 2. PLL will do their best to accommodate each Town, but is scheduled dependent.
