EFA Families,

Thank you for being a part of the EFA family for the 2020 season!  With all that has gone on this year we are grateful that there was a season.  We hope that the kids and your family enjoyed the season and had a positive experience.  Thank you for your patience and understanding it is appreciated.

One of the benefits of EFA is that the season has a beginning and end, we truly believe in multi-sport athletes and playing every sport that kids are interested in. So, good luck to all EFA players in their Winter, Spring, and Summer sports, and we look forward to seeing you back in the Fall of 2021 (registration will open in March).

For those kids who want to run around and play some football over the next few months, please watch for our optional dome programs that will start in January.

We will also offer athletic training (not football specific) for boys and girls over the Summer.

For those 8th graders moving on to the Edina High School program, good luck at the next level - it is a great program and a great opportunity to be a part of no cut high school team. 

Looking for a Winter Sport

Wrestling is one of the best off-season sports for football players to participate in as there are many overlapping skills. Wrestling will help athletes develop quickness, strength, agility, leverage, coordination, explosiveness and more. MANY football coaches and players attribute wrestling to the success they have had on the football field. Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, "I think you learn more from wrestling than any other sport. You find out so much more about yourself and about competition."  A great article about the benefits is A Nod to Wrestling from Tyler Blum (former University of Iowa football player). See below for details for each level of wrestling.

Why I Play Football - Be A Hornet

Welcome New Edina High School Varsity Coach Jason Potts

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! 


Jason Potts
