The MCL has divided the state of Michigan into seven conferences. Each conference will consist of multiple regions. MCL players will have a home region and conference but can play in all MCL regional events.
The division into these seven conferences was to allow players to get from one end of the conference to the other in approximately two hours, closer to three hours in a few spots in the upper peninsula. This is done to try and provide enough events close to all players that they can make a day trip to the event and limit having to stay overnight.
