We know some National Lacrosse League players and prospects (NALL players or players who have been in NLL training camp) play in Major League Lacrosse in the summer, along with Major Series Lacrosse and the Western Lacrosse Association premier box lacrosse leagues. However, some other leagues exist where NLL players and top prospects play over the summer and fall months. Here are some of them to watch.
