Australian Rules Football Club

This is the game you've been waiting to play your whole life


Welcome to the home of the Minnesota Freeze Australian Rules Football club.

The Minnesota Freeze was established in 1999 with a handful of Aussie enthusiasts who dreamed of bringing their love for the Australian game to Minnesota to compete against a handful of other teams springing up across the country. 20 years later, the Minnesota Freeze has become one of the largest clubs in the United States Australian Football League, containing both a men’s and women’s team.

The club continues to spread a love of the game across the Midwest and is always seeking new members to discover what makes “Aussie Rules” a unique sports experience.  Our club seeks to welcome all skill levels of play to our team and does not require tryouts to join the teams. We teach new recruits how to play the sport and learn the lingo, like how to take a ‘mark’.

As a member of the USAFL, the Minnesota Freeze Australian Rules Football Club embraces a mission of developing the game through local training sessions and by providing metro/local games, regional games, and participation in the annual USAFL National Championships held in the United States. We also support members seeking to play on the National level teams: the Revolution, Freedom, and Liberty.

The Minnesota Freeze Australian Rules Football Club, is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization.

As we are a non-profit amateur sports organization, we are volunteer based and funded by club members along with the help of sponsors. In addition to setting an example as athletes on the field, the Minnesota Freeze gives back to their communities through local charities and organizations, including:
• Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
• Team Ortho
• Feed My Starving Children
• The Food Group
• The Sheridan Story
• Movember Foundation
• Beacons Minneapolis & Saint Joan of Arc Summer Camp Youth Clinics

The 2021 season officially kicked off on Saturday, April 24, at the Lake Nokomis soccer fields with a training session and we are continuing to work finalizing the schedule for 2021 that includes a sub-regional tournament in Madison, WI as well as Nationals. Come and see what the fun is all about.

BRRRR…it’s cold in here. There must be some Freeze in the atmosphere.
