For the most part, the format for the 2018 season will be identical to that of the past seasons. The final league day is once again an optional tournament day. This is the result of not wanting to force teams to make a choice between competing in the MPL league days and other major events including National Qualifier Events. The format and scheduling of the tournament will be very similar to a normal league day. Although it may be possible that different competition/scoring formats will be experimented with.
This year all Midwest Power League Tournaments will be using Advanced Event Systems for its registration process. AES will be the website that is the choice of USAV Girl’s Junior National Championship, National Qualifiers, Regional’s, and many other events throughout the country.

Coaches’ Sign-in Form Release of Liability
It will be required for the 2018 Midwest Power League that a contact with each club have an e-mail address with Internet Access and/or download capabilities. League information will be posted to our web site on the Wednesday prior to the Sunday play date. Although some club directors may not have access to the Internet, it is very unlikely that a coach, a player, or a parent within your club does not have internet access. Most libraries also provide access. This should ease the communication process that club directors experience. It will also expedite getting the information out without relying on regular mail or fax.
If you have any questions, please contact Scott McQueen at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-476-0060 extension 116.
Most playing sites in Indiana will be charging a facility use fee for the 2018 season.
