The adult Midlands Merit League was founded in late 2005 to support the growth of rugby league in non-heartland areas. The 2007 season saw the introduction of an informal under-15 league Midlands Junior League based on Merit League principles. In 2008 the junior competition featured under-14 and under-16 divisions.
Midlands clubs voted against clubs outside the Midlands being included for the 2010 season. In 2010 the Under-12s took a tournament based format and Under-11s and Girls Under-12s started on a similar basis.
2011 saw the addition of an Under-18s league and saw the Under-14s take on a tournament based format, with the Under-12s replaced by an Under-13s.
The following teams will participate in 2011:
Under-18 Birmingham Bulldogs Coventry Bears Leicester Storm North Derbyshire Chargers Northampton Knights Telford Raiders Under-16 Birmingham Bulldogs Coventry Bears Derby Dragons Leicester Storm Northampton Knights Northampton Patriots North East Worcestershire Ravens Nottingham Outlaws Telford Raiders Under-14 TBC Under-13 TBC Under-11 TBC Under-12 girls TBC
