Middle-Essex is broken into two divisions, an A division & B division. Woburn Little League will work with spring division managers to determine team placement for the upcoming season to provide the best experience for all registered girls. If it is determined that teams will be split into an A & B team, the selection of the team will follow the existing rules defined by Woburn Little League to determine player selection.
