2021 - 2022 Midwest Conference Information

The Midwest Conference is one of 13 conferences that fall under the scope of the US Youth Soccer Leagues Program and operate at a multi-state level — providing high-level competition on a consistent basis at a targeted local level (Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Missouri, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota).

The Midwest Conference’s Premier I Division and Club vs. Club Division tiers offer its teams an opportunity to qualify for the following season’s National League. In addition to providing a pathway to qualifying for the National League, the Midwest Conference provides teams with a chance to advance to the US Youth Soccer Midwest Regional Championships, which are held annually each summer. 

The US Youth Soccer Leagues Program provides annual league competitions at the multi-state and national tiers for the highest levels of boys and girls teams in US Youth Soccer.  The multi-state tier of competition is comprised of US Youth Soccer Conferences. The Conference structure debuted in the 2018-19 season, replacing what were previously known as the US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues.  The national tier of competition is the US Youth Soccer National League, which has served as the highest league competition in US Youth Soccer since 2007.
