Due to the recent "Stay at Home Order" put in place by Gov. Walz through April 10th, and the closure of District 196 facilities through at least May 5th, EAA has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the following spring sports: Track, Spring Volleyball, 6U, 8U and 10U Box Lacrosse and Girls Lacrosse Spring Clinic. Information regarding refunds will be sent to those registered for these programs separately.
At this time, we do not know the future of other spring sports slated to begin on or around May 1, such as Soccer, Baseball, Softball, Summer Field Lacrosse, Ultimate Frisbee and Rugby. We are continuing to monitor the situation and will follow the guidelines set by Gov. Walz, City of Eagan and ISD 196. In this unprecedented time, our priority is the safety of our athletes, our volunteers and their families. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate through this together.
GOVERNOR WALZ EXECUTIVE ORDER 20-20 STATES:
5 (c): Outdoor activities. Individuals may engage in outdoor activities (e.g., walking, hiking, running, biking, driving for pleasure, hunting, or fishing), and may go to available public parks and other public recreation lands, consistent with remaining at least six feet apart from individuals from other households. This does not exempt public accommodations that may feature outdoor activities from closure under Executive Order 20-04 and does not permit trespass upon private property.

WHO ARE WE?
Eagan Athletic Association (EAA) is a 50+ year old community led non-profit organization dedicated to the development of the community's young people through athletics. Our programs are planned, promoted and directed by unpaid volunteers who work together to strengthen the community. EAA provides supervision, instruction, uniforms and equipment for athletic activities.
HOW ARE WE GOVERNED?
The volunteer EAA Board of Directors is a policy-making body responsible for the smooth administration of its sports programs: baseball, basketball, football, lacrosse, rugby, soccer, softball, track, volleyball and wrestling. The EAA Board of Directors is guided by volunteer sport boards and/or a sport director.
WE NEED YOU!
EAA relies on participation from hundreds of coaches and parents who volunteer many hours of their time to the youth of Eagan. Click here to find more information about volunteering with the EAA as our success depends on you!
EAA requires background checks every year for its board members, sport program directors, program board members, age group coordinators, coaches, assistant coaches, anyone who has direct dealings with children or direct access to financial information, as well as others, in order to ensure the safety and well being of EAA’s athletes and volunteers. Click here to view EAA's background check policy.
All coaches for Eagan Athletic Association programs are also required to have current CDC concussion certification, which is valid for three years from course completion.
APS Training is also required every two years. A link to complete will be emailed after successful completion of the volunteer registration/background check.
Players are expected to behave in accordance with federal, state and local laws and in a manner that respects the rights and safety of others, maintaining personal control and self-discipline. To help ensure this, EAA has established clear player behavior expectations and has further established procedure to support these expectations with appropriate consequences.
