12U Border Battle: MN vs. WI

We added an exciting competition this year for 12U teams - a Border Battle tournament with Wisconsin teams. In conjunction with Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association, teams from both state associations will battle it out on the field and earn points for their state in addition to earning points for themselves.

At the conclusion of the Border Battle, the state with the most points will win Paul Bunyan's Boot! The Boot will go home to the winner's state until next year's Border Battle.

Interested Minnesota teams must participate in our 12U League as league results will help seed for the Border Battle. Tentatively, the Border Battle is slated for end of June.
