Welcome to the Minnesota Chill, the premier All-State travel lacrosse club dedicated to empowering players on and off the field. With a rich history dating back to 1997 and the distinction of being the state's first youth travel lacrosse club, we take pride in offering transformative training and travel experiences that have a lasting impact. Our athletes, ranging from 10U to Graduating Seniors, compete and train at the highest level, form lifelong bonds, and foster their love for the game.
The Minnesota Chill is one of the only clubs in the region run by a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We put people over profits and are committed to being organized, transparent, affordable, diverse, and, most importantly, impactful. We travel as a team, plan team meals and amazing off-field activities, allowing players to develop confidence and autonomy while reducing financial burdens for families. Our commitment to fostering well-rounded athletes is evident in the dedication of our highly trained coaches, who focus on the holistic growth of each player, many of whom go on to play at the collegiate level, become more empathetic lifelong learners, and give back to the communities and game they love.
We offer fall, winter, and summer seasons, and while we love working with players year-round, we allow players to opt in and out of seasons as needed. We also coordinate team schedules with our new box lacrosse club, the Northern Lights, and high-school/association team schedules so players can do both.
