About Us

The Mountain Top League is a volunteer organization which serves the children of West Orange, NJ since it was founded in 1959. It remains the largest youth organization in West Orange!

We provide recreational programs for children of all levels in Baseball, Basketball, Hockey, Recreational level Soccer and Softball under the Mountain Top League banner. United Soccer Club, our Traveling Soccer club, offers competitive soccer for our advanced players.

MTL is organized and managed by a team of dedicated volunteers. As a volunteer organization, the success of our programs relies heavily on parents, guardians and/or residents of West Orange who are 18 years or older and volunteer as Team Coaches, Managers, League Commissioners or Trustees.

Sportsmanship, fairness, growth/development and enjoyment of the children are some of the values that drive our dedication and philosophy. It is our intention to provide each child with the opportunity to participate in all games.

In addition, some of our other goals include:

  • helping build character
  • teaching good sportsmanship
  • practicing principals of fair play
  • providing physical fitness
  • having fun

Our games are played in Northern New Jersey nestled around the ridges of the Watchung Mountain range which make up the South Mountain Reservation located in the suburban town of West Orange. The Township of West Orange as well as the West Orange Board of Education provide us with and care for the necessary facilities that we utilize all year round.
