The Midwest Regional Championship qualifiers from the Club vs. Club Divisions will join the conference’s team-based Premier I Division qualifiers at Regionals. Each of the National League’s 13 Conferences, including the Great Lakes Conference, provide a pathway for their top teams to advance to their respective Regional Championships. Conference teams also have access to the new National League Showcase Series and National League Playoffs, which each provide teams with a chance to play cross-conference matches in a national setting with increased exposure to college, professional and national team scouts.
