The clubs selected to participate in the Club vs. Club Divisions within the Great Lakes Conference have all proven to be successful in top US Youth Soccer competitive programs, including the US Youth Soccer Conferences, US Youth Soccer National League and US Youth Soccer National Championship Series.

“Each club that is participating in the inaugural season of Club vs. Club Divisions within the Great Lakes Conference has proven to meet a high standard in the philosophy, coaching and resources it applies to developing youth soccer players,” said Marc Frankland, league manager for the Great Lakes Conference. “The Club vs. Club Divisions provide a great environment to match up like-minded clubs in a competitive league structure, which meets specific club standards, with advancement opportunities to the National League and National Championship Series that are typical of the top divisions of the US Youth Soccer Conferences.”

The Club vs. Club Divisions will allow the first place teams in the 15U-17U age groups to qualify for the following season’s National League — the national tier and highest level of play in the US Youth Soccer Leagues Program.

In the 15U through 19U age groups, the top team in the Club vs. Club Divisions (that is not a State Cup Champion) will have the opportunity to qualify for the current seasonal year’s US Youth Soccer Regional Championships, either through direct qualification or through a wildcard selection process.
