Letter from our President

 

Welcome to the 48th year of the Edina Girls Athletic Association!

The Edina Girls Athletic Association proudly offers three programs for girls who live in Edina or attend Edina schools. These programs are: Flag Football, Volleyball and Run Club. All programs are designed to offer skill building, friendships and a lifelong love of sports.  The EGAA believes that sports teaches girls commitment, respect for others and sportsmanship.  Physical activity and competition enhances the mental, psychological and spiritual health of all girls and young women. 

We are especially excited about our upcoming 2021-2022 season. The Flag Football season kicks off in August. Our ever popular concession nights will be back for our Tuesday flag football games.  This is great way to grab dinner with your family as you watch the game.

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 extracurricular 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 25 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.

Sincerely,

Karla Venell

President EGAA

The Edina Girls Athletic Association mission:

  • Will educate girls in the skills, rules and strategy of recreational sports which will carry through into adulthood;

EGAA History

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.
