Q - Can my daughter and her friend be on the same team?
A - Every year each player gets put into open draft to keep teams fair.  However, beginning this year,  we are implementing an incentive program on a trial basis.   This program will allow a returning MPL player to recruit a brand new player who will be placed on the same team for one season.  Divisional age requirements do need to be met in this case.  Click Incentive Program for more info.

Q - Where are games and practices held?
A - In the Spring season, all games and practices will be at Petersen Park or Fox Ridge Park.  In the Fall, all practices will be at Petersen Park and Fox Ridge Park.  Any division with enough teams to stay in-house will play games at Petersen Park and Fox Ridge.  Any divisions who do NOT have enough teams to stay in-house, will therefore join the NISA organization and half of their games will be in McHenry (PP/FR) and half will be at parks of local towns (Wonder Lake, Crystal Lake, Lake in the Hills, Marengo, Harvard etc)
