Minnesota Blizzard Fall Elite Program 2020

Blizzard Fall Elite Season 2020-2021

As our Blizzard 'summer' season is getting underway, our Blizzard Elite Fall season is approaching with tryouts coming up in July (dates below).  
 
If you use the code: Blizzard50 when you sign up, you receive 50% off Blizzard tryout registration.  This 50% off is only for a limited time. 
 
We have made some changes to our Blizzard Elite program for the upcoming 2020-2021 Fall and Elite season.  These changes are based on what is best for the program this year, our annual survey, player input, our Blizzard Big 5 and our Blizzard Program goal to provide the best development, competition and exposure that the Midwest has to offer. 
 
 
There will be full details very soon, but this is a quick snap shot of this year's program.
