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.
Join the Minnesota Freeze for the first official practice of the year. Everyone welcome! Open practice starts at 9am. BBQ to follow immediately after.
The Minnesota Freeze travel to Des Moines early in the season for a USAFL 10 man tournament.
Please mark your calendars for Saturday, March 21, when the Freeze will be hosting our 2015 Season-Opening Social and Annual General Meeting at Kieran's in downtown Minneapolis. Read more »

The Swans were coming off of inspiring wins against the Nashville Kangaroos and the Ohio Valley River Rats in the two weeks prior to this matchup, and looked to spoil the Freeze in Minnesota. Read more »

Minnesota winters are for the tough, the brave and the slightly insane. They say you need a hobby, something to take your mind off the bitter snap in the air. They also say holidays in the south are recommended in March, just when you are about to reach breaking point and can’t take anymore of scrapping ice of your car’s windscreen. The Freeze had the Des Moines 10s tournament on their calendar all through the winter break and there was very determined mood within the camp to start the 2014 season off on a positive, winning note.
