Letter from our President

 

Welcome to the 44th year of the Edina Girls Athletic Association.

The Edina Girls Athletic Association proudly offers two programs: Flag Football and Volleyball. Flag Football is offered in the fall while our Volleyball program is during the winter. Both 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 American girls and young women.

We are especially excited about our upcoming 2017-2018 season. The Flag Football season kicks off in September. Our ever popular concession nights will be back 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 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,

Lise Crosby

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.
