What League/Teams work best for your family? Check out the summary of each below and for more details go to our different Team Pages to learn more.
Traveling: Our traveling program is a bit more competitive and you travel and play other teams in the metro area. Teams are built from tryouts which are scored by independent parties . Kids are placed on teams based on their scores and evaluations AAA/AA/A depending on number of kids and teams per grade. Plan on 3-4 days a week and on average 3 weekend tournaments.
GSRec (prev. North Star): The Gopher State Rec League (GSRec - previously North Star League) is a recreational level league very similar to our In-House program however you do play neighboring communities (ie. Blaine, Shoreview, St. Anthony). This league is for 13-15 year olds and games are played during the week, with an optional end of season tournament.
Senior League: Senior league is geared for High School students U16 and U17-19 and begins after the High School program ends. There are varying levels of play including AAA/AA and is ran more like the traveling program.
