They also would not be eligible for Major/Minor Midget unless they played Pee-Wee in Canada and then only in the districts or zones that they played Pee-Wee.
So you don't know if this level is any good then?

Just wondering in case I should follow their progress, if they're likely to play for GB.

There's loads of British guys listed in the OP playing in this outlaw league you speak of, usually they are not very good players even by our standards. One of my current teammates actually played there a while back, and he put up decent numbers in it.
