GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The University of North Dakota Athletics Department is proud to announce that registration for the 2014-15 U.S. Bank and Midco Sports Network Jr. Champions, the official kids club of UND Athletics, opens this Saturday, April 26, at UND’s spring football game.

New this year, thanks to corporate sponsors U.S. Bank and Midco Sports Network, Jr. Champions is completely FREE to join and enjoy all of the benefits of membership. Members of Jr. Champions receive a behind-the-scenes look at UND’s teams and student-athletes, as well as several fantastic perks, including:

  • FREE admission to all regular season home volleyball, women’s hockey and men’s and women’s basketball games (subject to availability)
  • EXCLUSIVE discounts on select football and men’s hockey tickets
  • Opportunities to interact with UND coaches and student-athletes at exclusive, members-only Jr. Champions events
  • An official 2014-15 Jr. Champions t-shirt, lanyard, and membership card
  • The official Jr. Champions e-newsletter
  • Opportunities to be the Jr. Champions “Captain of the Game” and get a behind-the-scenes tour on game day

"We are very excited to be partnering with both U.S. Bank and Midco Sports Network to provide this great opportunity for children in North Dakota to really get involved with UND Athletics and our student-athletes," said Director of Athletics Brian Faison. "This program also provides an affordable option for families to attend and enjoy UND Athletic events."

"U.S. Bank is highly involved in our community. We look for positive ways to make a difference by supporting great local organizations like UND Athletics that engage our region’s youth. Our contribution will eliminate the registration fee and will allow more youth to be involved in athletics," said U.S. Bank Regional President John Snustad.

Membership is open to children ages 3 or older who are in eighth grade or under. Kids will have their first opportunity to register this Saturday, April 26 at the UND Spring Football Game (kick-off at 1 p.m.). Jr. Champions sign-ups will begin after the annual kids clinic that takes place prior to the spring game. The kids clinic is from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Doors open at 11:00 a.m. As an added bonus, anyone who joins Jr. Champions at the spring game will be entered into a drawing to win an autographed 2013-14 North Dakota men’s hockey jersey.

Starting later this summer, children will be able to register in person for Jr. Champions at any U.S. Bank location in North Dakota during normal business hours.
