WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THE COMPASS FOR THE LEAGUE LOGO?

New England Sports chose The Compass for our badge as a symbol for our heritage and the goals of the league. As a sports organization in the heart of New England, the compass is our nod to all New England mariners. We also believe the Compass gives us direction to stay focused on our mission of helping young athletes follow their path to success. It symbolizes a way to lead them to find their ‘True North' in sports.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THOSE TEAM LOGOS? 
Natural Disaster themed logos: New England Sports chose to deviate from the norm of ordinary animals or other theme characters to represent our teams. The Natural Disaster characters gave us the freedom to create a fun and visual effect that opens up the imagination of these young players minds and reminds them that the idea of following your own path and thinking outside-the-box is completely acceptable. We chose teams such as the Lightning, Tsunami, Blizzard, Cyclone, Thunder, Earthquake, Volcano, Asteroid, Wild Fire & Avalanche as they represent a sign of strength and promote team solidarity.
