History and Successes
In 2011. The Minnesota CHILL started with one 4th grade team and since that time there have been as many as 11 teams created and participating in the Spring and Summer programming. The programming typically begins in late March and goes through the end of July. Each team gets 2-3 practices per week and 10-14 tournaments. Most of the tournaments are in the Twin Cities area, however every team takes a minimum of 2 out-of-town tournaments – travelling to tournaments in Chicago, Des Moines, Kansas City, Wisconsin Dells, Orlando Florida, Las Vegas among others.
