The Midwest Developmental League, which includes 13-U, 14-U, 15-U, 16-U, 17-U and 19-U boys age groups, was founded in April 2011 as part of US Club Soccer's National Premier Leagues (NPL).
The 2018-19 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.
NOTE: CSA Impact SC will be renamed as Cleveland Force SC next season.
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.
As the latest offering from US Club Soccer’s cornerstone long-term player development initiative, the application to become an official Players First-licensed club will go live on October 15.
