OUR PROGRAM

GOALS ARE:

1.) Prepare Youth to be excellent basketball players, good students and good citizens in our community. 2.) Prepare Youth to compete at the highest level (locally and nationally).  3.) Promote a long-term objective of obtaining a college scholarship in athletics or academics.

History and Successes

Our teams have had a lot of success locally and nationally. In 2011, Minnesota CHILL started with one 4th grade team. Since that time, there have been as many as 11 teams created and participate 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 per year. Most of the tournaments are in the Twin Cities area. However, every team takes a minimum of 2 out-of-town tournaments – traveling to tournaments in Chicago, Des Moines, Kansas City, Wisconsin Dells, Orlando Florida, Las Vegas, among others.
