Midget (15 & 16) was in between Bantam and Juvenile. The really talented players would move up to Junior B during Midget age, the talented ones during Juvenile(ages 17 & 18), the foot soldiers after Juvenile.
After the MMJHL lost its name franchises to the new QMJHL, the league regrouped as Junior "A" league. The West Island Flyers did not participate. From memory they joined a Junior "B" league which included the likes of the LaSalle Cyclones and other Lac St. Louis region teams.

At the time Quebec had a few governing bodies and the juvenile category was rather fluid. 1969-70 Montreal region had Juvenile "AA" which was 16-20, then you had the BB and A and B. This varied by region throughout Quebec until the Juvenile category was eliminated until its recent comeback.
