With District Tournaments throughout Minnesota starting in a couple of weeks, tournament time is quickly approaching. Be sure to plan your team's 2018 Drive to State, powered by Chevy, using the guide below and then stay tuned to updates throughout the tournaments on Twitter (@MinnHockey), Facebook with #Drive2State and our Tournaments mobile app.


Feb. 24th – District Tournaments must be completed
March 1st - 3rd – Region Tournaments
March 15th -17th – State Tournaments


In Minnesota Hockey Region Tournaments, a double elimination format is used to determine which teams will play in the State Tournament for each level.  At the Peewee A and B and Bantam A and B levels, each district receives a pre-determined number of seeds to Regions as indicated in the Minnesota Hockey Handbook.  

The Peewee AA, Bantam AA and all Girls levels follow a unique format for number of seeds. Click on the appropriate link for your level to view more information. 

2019 State Tournaments - March 15-17


Each of the Region Tournaments for Peewee and Bantam will send two teams to the State Tournament. For Girls State Tournaments, three teams will advance from each American and National Regions, and two teams will advance to state from the Olympic Regions.

In state tournaments, the qualifying teams will compete in a standard championship bracket format with 3rd place and consolation games.
