The league is composed of one senior team division. It has previous operated with multiple divisions. In the 1990s the league operated with three senior divisions, and a second tier division operated up until the 2016–17 season. Following on from this the league suffered from a lack of clubs, with only seven clubs completing the 2018–19 season, and ten, including two reserve sides making up the league for the 2019–20 season. For the 2020–21 season the league will not function with eight of the league's teams instead being admitted to the Aberdare Valley League.
