One for Eastern NY Northern Division and one for Eastern NY Southern Division. These two Divisions will be administered & operated under the Eastern New York State Commissioner as one organization. Eastern NY’s Southern Division will include Sullivan, Dutchess, and most of Ulster Counties and extend south. The Northern Division will extend North of the aforementioned Counties. – This Test Pilot is for the 2018 and will be subject to review at the end of the season. With this change, ALL Middle Atlantic Region Tournaments will return to a 10-Team Format.
