The Midwest Developmental League, which includes 13-U, 14-U, 15-U, 16-U, 17-U and 19-U boys and girls age groups, was founded in April 2011 as part of US Club Soccer's National Premier Leagues (NPL).
The 2017-18 Midwest Developmental League includes an east and a west region, and is one of the qualifying leagues under Elite National Premier League (ENPL). As part of the season schedules, clubs will play within their conference and have the opportunity to play against the opposite conference during a nationally recognized showcase.
The 2018 St. Louis Scott Gallagher Showcase served as a mandatory showcase for the league, April 6-8, featuring 15-U through 19-U age groups.
