What is the schedule?
Games will be self-schedule and home team host.
As travel is a major component of MRL play, teams are expected to travel to the team listed as the home team for each match including long distances i.e Chicagoland to the southern portion of the state.
Teams that fail to compete all of their Illinois MRL Qualifying Division games may be removed from the division and not considered for MRL.
Once groups and schedules are finalized, teams are encouraged to work amongst themselves to coordinate weekends in which multiple games could be hosted at one location, similar to an MRL weekend.
What are the roster limits?
Players are only allowed to compete on one team per season in the MRL Qualifying competition. If a club has multiple teams in the division, a player can only play for one team during each season, Fall and Spring.
If a player changes clubs during the season, they may not be added to another MRL Qualifying Division roster during the season.
Example: During the Fall season, Susie leaves Club A and joins Club B. Susie cannot play in any MRL Qualifying Division games with Club B until the Spring season.
