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.
Jason Becker's band, Brother Seamus, is having a CD Release party on November 13th at the Celtic Junction in St Paul.
Details are sketchy right now, but if you're interested, mark the date, Saturday, November 13th, and let me know so I can follow up with details.
Here's a link to the CD, where more info about the event will appear soon: http://www.jacktarrecords.com/

The Minnesota Freeze made it through their pool undefeated and earned a berth in the Division II Grand Final against the Kangaroos from Calgary. This is the Freeze's 4th grand final in their 6 year history. They previously won Division III in 2005 and Division II in 2007 and were runners up in 2006.
Calgary went into the match heavy favorites but the Minnesota boys were undaunted and eager to play as the underdog.
When the final horn sounded on the AFL 2010 Grand Final, the scores were level for only the third time in VFL/AFL Grand Final history.
Rather than play overtime, AFL rules dictate that a complete match be replayed the following work. The Minnesota Freeze has secured The Local as the venue for watching this historic rematch!
The Minnesota Freeze will be holding their annual end-of-year "Best and Fairest" awards banquet on Friday evening, October 29, in the beautiful Titanic Room of Kieran's Pub.
Doors open at 6 PM.
All friends and family of the club are welcome.
