The Boston Storm is one of the original four teams of the United Women's Lacrosse League (UWXL). UWLX was founded by Digit Murphy and Aronda Kirby in a strategic partnership with STX.[1]

On February 23, 2016, Bowen Holden was named as the first general manager in franchise history.[2] On March 17, 2016, Amy Patton was announced as the Storm's first head coach.[3]

The first game in franchise history took place on May 28, 2016 at Goodman Stadium at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Opposing the Philadelphia Force, Boston prevailed by a 16–8 tally. The team's first-ever goal was scored by Kailah Kempney, with Danielle Estrasco logging the assist. Liz Hogan served as the starting goaltender, requiring just nine saves for the win.
