  • One Location for All Ages/Divisions - Our tournaments are not spread out all over the state on a particular weekend. Most of the time they are all at one location, and if not, they are at two sites are within a few miles of each other. You can easily watch your friends and relatives play at different age levels.

  • State Championship Series - Each year, Minnesota AAU sponsors the State Prelims and State Championship. These tournaments happen the second weekend (Prelims) and third weekend (Championship) of May.  The Prelims are pool play, and that weekend seeds teams into the Championship weekend. Depending on your Prelims finish, you will either be placed in the D1 or D2 Championship Bracket at the State Tournament.  There is a seeding meeting prior to the Prelims to put teams into pools.


  • Minnesota AAU Summer Jam - The third event that is sponsored by Minnesota AAU is a huge regional event that is held in June, the third weekend after Memorial Day weekend.  This tournament typically attracts teams from MN, IA, WI, SD, ND, and NE.


  • Invitational Tournaments - To fill out local schedules, individual clubs host Invitational Tournaments throughout the spring and summer. Many of those are hosted on this site.  You can find others by visiting and searching for Girls Basketball events in the area.
