As Minnesota’s only LGBTQ+ masters swim team, our mission is to provide a safe, affirming community for LGBTQ+ athletes, promoting health and fitness through swimming in the Twin Cities area.

Our vision is to become the premier LGBTQ+ swim club in the United States, where all LGBTQ+ athletes are able to cultivate a life-long passion for the sport of swimming.


Love of Swimming | MN Ice strives to create an environment that cultivates a life-long passion of the sport and encourages fun and enjoyment in practice and competition.

Inclusivity | MN Ice strives to create an all-inclusive environment, where all are welcome, regardless of sexual orientation, gender, sex, or any other label that is placed upon us personally or by society. MN Ice celebrates diversity and inclusion, including allies and friends of the LGBTQ+ community!

Community | In a sociopolitical climate in which LGBTQ+ people still experience discrimination, violence, and marginalization - especially in athletics - MN Ice strives to provide a safe, affirming environment for LGBTQ+ people to come together in and out of the pool. MN Ice is also committed to being an active member of the larger Twin Cities community.

Justice | MN Ice strives to be an active participant in LGBTQ+ advocacy at a local and national level.
