Midwest Regional League (MRL)
The Midwest Regional League (MRL) mission is to provide the highest standard of competitive play for youth teams in US Youth Soccer Region II (the Midwest Region) and to assure the continued growth and development of elite level players.
Indiana Soccer Policy for Promotion to and/or Retention in MRL Please Contact George Perry.
Note: MRL does not allow "trapped" players to participate. "Trapped" players are those players whose birthdates require they play U15, but they are still in the 8th grade and they do not participate with any high school team. The "trapped" player allowance is an Indiana Soccer specific exception to the US Youth Soccer roster rules. MRL is not required to accept these players. Additionally, U19 "trapped" players are not allowed to participate on U18 teams in the spring.
MRL SPRING 2013
Spring 2013 MRL Applicants:
Indiana Soccer is moving ahead with the application process for this Spring 2013 MRL applications. This spring, MRL has added a U13 age group (spring play only) in addition to the U14-U18 age groups. We are starting the process early so teams can be informed of our state’s recommendation as early as possible. This is how the process will work:
Immediately: Registration is open. Closed 9/30/2012
September 30: MRL registration at the state level closes
October 10: Rankings due from teams/DOCs back to ISL Commissioner,
George Perry. (U15-U18)
October 15: Indiana Recommendations to MRL - (U13-U18 ages) <--Click Here
November 1: League payment ($550) is due to the state office for accepted teams.
Extended to November 15 for U13 & U14 teams
November 26: MRL posts the accepted teams.
The Spring 2013 league fee for MRL is $550 payable to Indiana Soccer. The fee will be due on November 1, 2012 for the teams selected to participate. The checks are to be mailed to:
5440 Herbert Lord Road
Indianapolis, IN 46216
Note: For the spring 2014 season, it is our goal that all MRL applications at the state level be completed by September 1, 2013. The purpose of this move is to allow teams to know early who the state will be recommending to MRL so players and families will know the level of their commitments to the club for the spring. This does not adjust the date that MRL will approve our state’s recommendations.
