We are so excited that our 2016 Boca Jets Lacrosse season is just around the corner. Some quick info:
Boca Jets Lacrosse (BJL) participates as part of the South Florida Youth Lacrosse League (SFYLL). The SFYLL is made up of 15 clubs stretching from Miami in the south to Merritt Island in the north. BJL typically will play teams from Weston, Parkland, Davie, Coral Springs, Delray, Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter.
