The Minnesota Freeze is an Australian Rules Football Club based in the twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The men's and women's team are comprised of players from various backgrounds, ages, and nationalities.
We represent Minnesota at the national level in the United States Australian Football League (USAFL). Throughout the year we play against teams mainly in the Midwest to determine our National ranking. That ranking is used for seeding in the National Championship Tournament held each October, where all teams around the nation are invited to compete in the USAFL tournament to determine champion teams in 4 men's divisions and a women's division.
Since their debut at the national level in 2005, the Freeze men's tam have won 3 National Championships. In the past 5 years the women's team has repeatedly challenged for a championship, as well.
Regardless of your skill level or familiarity with the game, all players are welcome. Our club thrives because of newcomers' willingness to come out give it a "fair go."
Weekly practices for men and women start in late April and are held Saturday mornings from 9 AM - 1 PM at Sibley High School in Mendota Heights. Mid-week skills practices are also held throughout the season on Wednesday evenings from 6-8 PM at the Northwestern Health Sciences University athletic fields on West 84th Street in Bloomington.
