Welcome MRL Referees
As you know, this league features the highest level of soccer within the 14-state Midwest Region of US Youth Soccer, with teams earning the right to advance to the Regionals. The level of competition is comparable to games at the regionals and late round State Cup competition. Games are hotly contested and extremely competitive. Teams are battling for Wild Card slots into the Regionals, maintaining their status as a Premier Division team or seeking to earn promotion from the First Division to the Premier Division.
Teams, coaches and parents expect the very best from referees. Our league strives to provide everyone with the best environment for youth soccer competition. Your acceptance of games in the MRL demonstrates your desire to officiate at the highest levels of youth soccer and we appreciate the hours of dedication you have invested in reaching this level.
