What league does Rockford FC play in? We play in the Heartland Conference of the Midwest Premier League (MWPL), which is a competitive regional league featuring clubs from Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana. Players in the league are college players, recent college players, players looking to become professional, ex-professional players, and highly skilled amateurs. The MWPL is affiliated with the professional National Independent Soccer Association (NISA). Rockford FC also competes in the Illinois State Cup and plays friendlies against other local and regional clubs, allowing players to gain additional playing time.
What are the age limits? All players 18 and up (or those who turn 18 before May 6th) are eligible to play, but athletes under the age of 18 need to have the proper waivers signed by a parent/guardian.
What is the time commitment? Rockford FC practices twice times a week. You are expected to attend training sessions in order to be eligible to play in the next match.
Where we we play? RFC plays most of our matches at Auburn High School, which features a turf field, stands, and lights for night games.
What does it cost to play for RFC? A $250 fee covers everything including jerseys (yours to keep), league fees, training kits, facility rentals, referee fees, and coaching etc. Athletic trainers are provided at all home and away league matches as well.
What is travel like? Travel will be limited to the Midwest during the regular season and will depend on our opponents. The club may provide some transportation but in general players carpool or drive themselves.
When does the season run? Preseason will start in late April with games starting in May and ending in July. For players in college, we will accommodate you not being available until after you are finished with the school year.
