Exciting Changes for the EFA in 2017

1) New League Affiliation - 4th-8th Grades

The EFA made the decision to join Lake Minnetonka Athletic Association for all tackle grades. We are excited to be playing against Minnetonka, Hopkins, St. Louis Park, Wayzata, Orono, and Maple Grove. We will still play Edina teams as part of our schedule, but will add new competition so the kids don’t have to play each other multiple times in the season. This change will bring about new rules, all with the intent of developing all kids and giving them all opportunities to learn the game/positions. As a benefit for all multi-sport athletes, the season will end at MEA (Oct. 18th).

2) 4th Grade Flag Night

We are excited to pilot a new Flag program this Fall. On Mondays after school starts, we will shorten our practice and then have organized 7 on 7 Flag games. We want to give all players the opportunity to play all positions, run & catch the ball, and play quarterback, and we think 7 on 7 is a great way to add some more fun for players, while teaching football skills. The games are included in your registration fees.

For those kids who are not a part of tackle program, we will open up 40 spots, and they will be added to teams with the tackle players for a separate fee. We really hope that this will be a fun and exciting program for the kids!
