Since 2003, the Minnesota Blizzard Elite and Fall program have run a full travel option from ages 12u-18u. Players who have started in our Blizzard program - at any level - have seen a dramatic increase in their development and play. A big part of the players' success has to do with our practices, development and specifically - our coaches.

Every member of our Blizzard coaching staff (25 coaches) has experience coaching in the program. All of our Blizzard traveling coaches (12) have been in our program for over five years - with some having been with the Blizzard since 2003. Blizzard coaches have been very loyal to the program because it is a great 'family' to be a part of. There is continuity, respect among our staff, and it is a passion of ours that we take very seriously.
The Blizzard's main goal - at all levels - is to be the best elite travel baseball program in the state. We have a strong tradition of producing the top players in MN. The competition, college and pro exposure, player development, alumni involvement and family are what drive our program. Blizzard Baseball is more than baseball - it’s a life experience with coaches who care and players who want to get better.
