USYS National League Conferences (NLC) operate club-based leagues focused on player development with a pathway to USYS Regional Championships (NCS) and National League P.R.O.
Club vs. Club competition connects like-minded clubs with common goals to compete against each other in a controlled, competitive, and positive environment.
NLC provides top-tier regionalized competition on a consistent basis at a targeted local level. The Midwest Conference serves teams/clubs primarily in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota. Top teams in the Midwest Conference top tier divisions will earn advancement to the US Youth Soccer Regional Championships (NCS) and automatically qualify for National League P.R.O.
