The makeup of the league can change each year but in 2011 there were 6 teams of 12-15 year olds from Arlington, Medford and Winchester. Each team will play 2-3 games per week, for a total of 10-12 games. There is also a one game elimination playoff. The first game is tentatively scheduled for the Monday, June 25th. The season (including playoffs) will end by mid August.
