The regular season for 14’s and 15’s will begin August 28 – 30 and the Youth 16U League will begin its league schedule August 15-16. Each age group will host in-state competition weekends, participate in the NAHL Showcase or a National Invitational Tournament and have the opportunity to compete for a chance to represent Minnesota at the USA Hockey National Championships in League and Minnesota District Playoffs.
Three teams from the 2019 CCM High Performance Tier 1 Leagues were set to represent Minnesota at USA Hockey Tier 1 National Championships, prior to the onset of the pandemic. The Green Giants of District 10 won the Girls Tier I 14U National Championship in 2018 and were a semi-finalist in 2019.
Minnesota Hockey’s Tier 1 structure was established in 2016 to enhance Minnesota’s community-based association and high school model by bringing together the most talented players from all over Minnesota for high-quality training, player development and highly competitive League play as well as providing a path to compete in the USA Hockey Tier 1 National Championships. The League schedule is designed to allow participants to play for their association or high school team.
