The Middlesex Barbarians DII club has requested a move up to DI in New England for the 2012 fall season, and was granted that move in a unanimous vote by the DI New England clubs last week.

New England likes to keep their leagues with even numbers (thus giving every team a league match every weekend), and the move left DII with 11 teams. However, Saratoga volunteered to drop to DIII, while Mad River asked for, and received, a move up from DIV to DIII.

The New England divisions for next season, then are:
