SELECTION AND PLACEMENT OF TEAMS

There is a two-step approval process for teams.

  • First, each team must be endorsed by its respective State Association.
  • Second, the individual Conference Team Selection Committee shall determine the final selection and placement of all teams.


?Accepted teams shall be notified via website posting or an e-mail regarding their acceptance and placement into specific tiers and divisions within the Conferences. In accordance with a national set of Rules and Regulations, teams and clubs will be selected and placed into the appropriate tier based on pre-qualification (from MRL) and standards as outlined in the team application.  The method of qualification and promotion/relegation used previously will essentially be carried forward with our new conferences.

There will be promotion and relegation between the tiers on a season-to-season basis. Any earned slots for the top tier from MRL play will be honored at the Premier I tier in a team’s respective Conference.  A listing of pre-qualified teams will be posted on the US Youth Soccer website at the conclusion of the MRL’s 2018 Spring Season.

ADVANCEMENT TO 2019 REGIONALS and QUALIFICATION INTO 2019-2020 NATIONAL LEAGUE
