The Network League

Sign up now for the 2018 Network League.  In its inaugral season (2017) The Network League hosted 10U, 11U, 12U, and 13U leagues for travel teams and was an overwhelming success.  Here are the benefits:
 
One game night per week (stop playing 2-3 nights per week)
Leaves teams with available week nights for practices
League ends in early to mid-June, allowing for regional/world series tournament prep
League starts in early April, allowing for teams to get a jump start to their seasons
Two umpires per game
No rain make-ups or messy scheduling conflicts
Games are hosted at BYB Complex - no traveling to new sites every week
20+ teams in the inaugral season, more expected in 2018

The primary purpose of this league is to allow travel teams to develop players outside of the tournament games, but without taking too many nights away by playing 2-3 games per week, leaving time for teams to have practices.
