2020 Tourney Features 20 teams across four levels

Each fall, the Peewee Challenge strives to bring together talented players in both the Major and Minor Peewee groups, united under a common theme represented in the sweaters each team wears. 

This year's crop of teams - Andover, Chisago Lakes, Detroit Lakes, Farmington, and White Bear Lake - feature high school programs that have not advanced past the first round of the Class AA or Class A State Tournament.

To those who count themselves as Huskies, Wildcats, Lakers, Tigers, and Bears, their semifinal-less droughts are no laughing matter. However, for every 32 teams that advance to the state's grandest stage, there are over 220 more teams (including co-ops) that watch from the stands or their couch.

Fear not, 2020 Peewee Challenge-theme programs. Considering the amount of talent slated to compete this weekend, some of those programs may not have to wait long for their shot among the state's final four.
