As a member of the MBYLL (Boys) and MBGLL (Girls) our seasons typically run from March to June. There are no "A/B/C" teams. They are evenly balanced. Both boys and girls at all levels play neighboring towns home and away. Games are predominantly on Sundays with a few weeknight games. Practices are typicaly twice a week.
