Minnesota Hockey is excited to announce the complete list of Peewee A/AA and Bantam A/AA teams that will be competing for a chance to represent their communities at the Minnesota Hockey Region and State Tournaments. For the third consecutive year, The Drive to State is presented by Select Heartland Chevy Dealers and will feature 35 Region Tournaments on February 26 through 28, followed by 14 State Tournaments being played March 11 through 13.
Since the introduction of the A/AA classification system in the 2012-13 season, associations have been provided the opportunity to request a change in classification for tournament play on an annual basis. This season several associations have opted to move their top team at the Peewee and/or Bantam classification up to the AA level including Apple Valley, Cottage Grove, Mahtomedi, St. Paul and Tartan.
The full list of teams for 2015-16 A/AA is posted below. Associations listed with asterisk (*) have chosen to field teams at both the AA and A levels of play. For more information on the 2016 Region and State Tournaments, visit their respective web pages.
