2013 Fall Flag Football
Dana and Lise are already in the planning stages for our 2013 Flag Football Season. Coming soon - Football Mailer and email with registration info.
Welcome to the 37th year of the Edina Girls Athletic Association.
The Edina Girls Athletic Association proudly serves over 1500 girls a year. These girls participate Flag Football and Volleyball Programs. They have told us time and time again that our sports programs offer skill building, friendships and a lifelong love of sports.
We are especially excited about our upcoming 2012 – 2013 season. Our ever popular concession nights will be back with healhy offerings on Tuesday evenings this fall for our flag football games.
EGAA believes in our athletes, so each year we recognize and award 4 to 6 senior high school girls with academic scholarships. These awards are given to players who demonstrate good sportsmanship, have achieved a high level of academic success and are involved in extra curricular activities at school and in their community.
EGAA is a nonprofit organization driven by volunteer members who serve in various capacities. We recognize that without our volunteers we could not function as an organization. Throughout the years; parents, siblings, and family friends have come forward to volunteer their time and effort to serve as coaches for our teams. In addition, we have 20 to 30 volunteer members (including high school students) who annually participate on the EGAA Board. As board members, it is our commitment to continually challenge ourselves to provide a healthy level of competition that emphasizes good sportsmanship, fundamental skill building, teamwork, and most importantly, how to have a GREAT time playing organized sports!!!
We are dedicated to improving our programs and the opportunities we provide your girls. We encourage your help, ideas, and support at all times. If you would like more information about The Edina Girls Athletic Association, or how to become a volunteer, please contact me or any of our board members listed on our website. If you are interested in serving on the EGAA Board, please contact me.
The Edina Girls Athletic Association mission:
The formation of the Edina Girls Athletic Association began in January 1974. As the community saw the need for team sports for girls, the Edina Park And Recreation Department invited people to attend meeting and discuss the girls sports.
These visionaries formed a volunteer board. During the summer of 1974, bylaws were written, policies and procedures were formulated. Thus, the Edina Girls Athletic Association was born, then incorporated in January 1975.
