The Florida Launch are a professional men's field lacrosse team based in Boca Raton, Florida. They joined Major League Lacrosse (MLL) as an expansion team for the 2014 season. The team plays its home games at Florida Atlantic University Stadium.[1]

Franchise history

In November 2013, MLL granted an expansion franchise to Palm Beach County, Florida for the 2014 MLL Season. The formation of the Launch coincides with the dissolution of the Hamilton Nationals, and former National players have become members of the inaugural Launch squad.[2] Former Denver Outlaws assistant Stan Ross was named as the new team's first coach.

Ross faced his former team in the Launch's inaugural game on Saturday, April 26, 2014 in their home opener.[3] The Launch lost their first game to the Outlaws 14-10. Josh Amidon scored the first goal in franchise history.[4] The team's first victory came in their second game, an 11-8 win over the Charlotte Hounds.[5]
