Regional Games

Regional Games are offered for basketball and softball. The games allow athletes an additional opportunity to compete in their sport and are open to all delegations across Minnesota, although priority will be given to areas invited. Regional games are not a qualifier for state.

Regional Games Registration

Although priority will be given to the areas invited for each competition, delegations within another area of the state are welcome to attend, provided that quota is not at capacity.

Transportation Reimbursements

Requests for transportation expenses to Regional Games will be managed through the LETR Scholarship fund. Any delegations that would like to request a transportation reimbursement will need to do so through the scholarship, and we will allocate money based more on demand and need than participation. While it’s still our hope we’ll be able to cover a significant amount of transportation requests through the scholarship fund, some delegations may need to cover a portion of these expenses in order to participate in Regional Games.
