The Jamboree Coordinator is responsible for helping to organize our NSYLA Teams for the season ending Jamboree at Devens.
The event is held the second and third weekends of June.
The tasks include:
Registering our teams on the MBYLL website (similar to how you registered your son for the program)
Communicating which of the four days we will participate on to our parents
Verifying and distributing the Jamboree game schedule to our parents
Setting up a central tent site for our players at a specific location at Devens as a gathering point.
This is the largest Youth Lacrosse jamboree in the country. We will have over 350 teams playing on at least 11 different fields from 8:00 AM in the morning till 6:00 PM at night over two weekends. Each team will have 3 games. There will be lacrosse equipment sales, food and beverage, games, clinics, and much more. It is a not to be missed event.

The registration system will be found at the www.mbyll.org web site. Only Visa and MasterCard will be accepted. The registration system asks that you provide a separate contact (the appropriate contact) for each team when entering the team name. To run the Jamboree effectively, we need that information for specific game day instructions and information. A complete registration will be a registration that includes coaches names and contact information (email and phone) for each team registered.
When registering, you will enter one team's information and the 'checkout' screen will signal the end of that teams registration. At the top and bottom of that screen, there is a button and link that say 'click here to register another team'; continue to click that link until you've entered all your teams. Then go through the checkout process where it will ask for your credit card information. This will save you time and you'll only need to go through the credit card process once.
Registration will close on April 30th. Towns/Teams that register after the 30th will be put on a wait list and not be guaranteed a slot at the Jamboree.
The Jamboree staff make an attempt to schedule teams on the day that they would prefer to play. This process is balanced by a first come first serve registration time with the numbers of teams a town would like to have on a given day.
The Jamboree staff makes an attempt to provide 3 games with teams that your team does not normally play, due to the complexity of the scheduling process that is not always possible. Some teams may be asked to play a 4th game in order to balance the schedule.
The Jamboree staff tries in general to have team play in a format of game-off-game-off-game. Teams may be scheduled with two games off and in a rare exception three games off.
