The NECBL is a collegiate summer league, which are very popular in New England. The leagues are not affiliated with any actual college but are "CSL"'s because their talent utilizes the top tier of talent from many of the best NCAA Division I & Division II universities in America. This gives the CSL's very high quality play… without spending a dime on talent because the players don't get paid a penny. While that may almost sound like slave labor, its actually not and is in a fact…quite a win-win situation for both.
