Australian Rules football, or 'footy' as it is colloquially known, is a non-stop thrill - a fast, competitive, physical, and high scoring team game.
In its first three years of competition at the National level the Minnesota Freeze have had remarkable success by winning two championships; Division 3 in 2005 and Division 2 in 2007. Coupled with that on-field success has been the outstanding growth both on and off the field, as it has developed from a team into a fun social club as well.
If you are looking to get involved in sports, looking for something new or perhaps just want to see what footy is all about: join the Minnesota Freeze Footy Club today. New Players Are Always Welcome!!!
We have programs for men and women that cater to all levels of participation: local, National, and International competition. No prior experience is necessary. We have three local teams, comprised of players from various backgrounds, ages, and nationalities that scrimmage against each other throughout the season in a Metro League.
We encourage everyone to come down to Lake Nokomis for our weekly training and join us for a kick.
With an open and welcoming Metro League, a highly competitive team in the Mid-American Australian Football League (MAAFL), and a winning national team, there is much to like about being involved with The Freeze.
