The safety of our players, spectators and staff has always been at the forefront of what we do.
The EFA in conjunction with LMAA have been closely monitoring the evolving situation with youth sports in Minnesota and our ability to provide a tackle and flag football season this Fall.
The update released on June 19th from the Minnesota Department of health gives us confidence that will be able to hold our Flag and LMAA tackle football season with the appropriate mitigation's put in place.
We will continue to monitor the direction from the MNDH as the current epidemiology of the virus continues to evolve within MN. Given this information we are moving forward with our fall season and are continuing to develop our return to play protocols under the guidance of the CDC, MNDH and USA Football. We will communicate these measures as they are developed and approved. We would like to thank you for your patience and support during these unprecedented times and can't wait to see you in August.

Dear EFA Families,
My name is Jason Potts and I have been named the new Head Football Coach at Edina High School. I am beyond excited to represent such an amazing community filled with many ingredients to lead a highly successful football program. The players, administration, staff and community members have been extremely welcoming. This experience has blown me away in the first week of getting things started.
My goal is to be extremely visible in the Edina Football Association. I want to meet with coaches and provide everything I can. This will include playbooks, drills, strategies and techniques of football. In addition, I want to include strategies to make football safe and fun. I want players to have a great experience as a young athlete and play football all the way through their senior season. Teaching proper technique on how to tackle, block, and run with the football will help reduce injuries. In addition I will encourage coaches to be a relationship driven leader and use football as a teaching tool to learn life skills. At this level I want young players to have an amazing experience that prepares, and motivates them for the high school level of football.
I want to attend EFA football games and practices and be visible. I also want EFA football players to attend all of our home varsity games and see what it's like to compete as a Edina Hornet. I am in the process of putting a summer schedule together, which will include youth football camps. The EFA is the future, and I want to invest, I look forward to meeting all of you.
Thank you again for selecting me as the Head Football Coach at Edina. My family is very blessed to enter the Edina community!
