Welcome to the 49th year of the Edina Girls Athletic Association!
The Edina Girls Athletic Association (EGAA) proudly offers programs for girls who live in Edina or attend Edina schools. The programs--Flag Football, Volleyball and Run Club--are designed to promote skill building, friendships, and a lifelong love of staying active. The EGAA believes that participation in sports teaches girls commitment, respect for others and sportsmanship. Physical activity and competition enhance the mental, psychological and spiritual health of all girls and young women.
Our focus is on our participating athletes, so each year we recognize and award 3-5 senior high school girls with academic scholarships. These awards are given to players who demonstrate good sportsmanship, have achieved academic success, and are involved in extracurricular activities at school and in their community.
EGAA is a non-profit organization driven by 15 volunteer Board members who plan, organize and run the athletic programs. We also provide a learning Board opportunity to high school juniors and seniors! We are so grateful for the many parents, siblings, and family friends that volunteer time to serve as coaches for the teams. In 2023 we need 4-6 new members to join the Board so we can continue to offer these recreational sports programs.
Board members are dedicated to improving the programs and opportunities we provide the girls in the community. We meet monthly, share ideas, collaborate on program details and deliver programs we are proud of, and the girls enjoy! Join us! Review the website, see the pictures, and learn more about The Edina Girls Athletic Association and how to become a new Board Member or volunteer. Please contact me or any of our Board members listed on the website with questions and interest.
Help us reach 50-years strong in our community!
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.
