The North American Box Lacrosse League

Hello everyone, this is the NABLL. I hope everyone can enjoy lacrosse, whether you like the sport or have never even watched it before. And just to confirm. This league is box lacrosse which is played in arenas or most commonly normal ice rinks, not field lacrosse.

I want to add these logos are not the best quality and I am not good at logo making.

INTRODUCTION
The year is 1958 and the sport of box lacrosse has taken off in parts of Canada. An ownership group in New Westminster decides it is time to form a fully-functioning box lacrosse league, as opposed to the crumbling British Columbia Box Lacrosse League. 

Former BCBLL member Vancouver, was also interested in this new lacrosse league. Two more ownership groups in Calgary and Edmonton were found to be fond of this new league idea. And other Canadian side: Toronto Lacrosse Club was interested in joining this league. However with travel being costly from British Columbia to Ontario, the new league found membership in Buffalo, Detroit and Hamilton. 

The clubs play a schedule within their own conference and the champion of each conference will meet to crown a champion.

The Queen's Park Wanderers: 
https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/865783632563273729/875417108119453756/QPW_Logo.png

Nicknamed the Spirit Bears, The Athletic Club, The QPAC

The Queen's Park Wanderers are based out of New Westminster, British Columbia. Founded in 1920 originally as an outdoor club, they soon made the transition to box lacrosse when the Queen's Park Arena was constructed in 1930. The Wanderers are part of the Queen's Park Athletic Club which also has ice hockey, soccer and cycling departments. 

The club has always shown much success in their lacrosse endeavors, they always dominated their competition in the British Columbia Box Lacrosse Club, outscoring most of their opponents.

(I made an error with the logo and will insert it in the coming days)

Nicknamed the Sockeyes and the Salmonshirts.

The Sockeyes are based out of Vancouver, British Columbia. Founded in 1925 they have been a top competitor to the Queen's Park Wanderers in the BCBLL which they are most famous for. The name Sockeyes comes from the popular fish in the pacific northwest and the name Salmonshirts comes from their uniforms they used when they were first formed.

They now play at the Vancouver Forum which holds 5,050 people.

Re: The North American Box Lacrosse League

Very nice, however I feel like the logo would benefit from a dark color having more prevalence. The small bits of black look good but I think that if you could add more of it or make the black into more of a brown, it would be a lot more cohesive and really bring a solid look.

Ok, I will take that into consideration. I'll see what it will look like after I release the 5 other clubs.

I'd also add a black/brown outline to the skull since parts of the skull could get lost without something wrangling it in.

Edmonton Snow Devils:https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/865783632563273729/875794354495717446/Edmonton_Snow_Devils_2.png

The Snow Devils were originally founded as the Edmonton Lacrosse Club being formed in 1940. The club began playing a misshapen schedule against any teams that would play them, which came to playing anywhere from 2-4 games a season. The name Snow Devils is derived from the harsh winters in Canada. When invited to the NABLL they brought along Calgary to start a new in-province rivalry.

The Snow Devils play out of the Edmonton Gardens which holds 5,200 people.
