It’s with a heavy heart that the decision has been made to cancel our 2020 track season. With social distancing and e-learning in place until May 4, and not being able to predict if it will continue past that date, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the EAA Track season.
Extending the season was not an option for us as the school district is closing the track May 18 to start the renovation of the football field.
We are currently working to process refunds. Please note:
We appreciate your patience with this unique situation and hope we will see you for the 2021 track season!

The EAA Track program is recognized by many as one of the best youth track programs in the state. The tradition continues in the 2020 season and we are looking forward to another fantastic track season!
The EAA track program aims to introduce and promote the sport of track & field to Eagan’s youth. Our goal is to stress the importance of team, friendship and good sportsmanship in the track and field experience. In 2020, we anticipate approximately 700+ children from Grades K – 6 to participate in our program. The season consists of five meets and typically one practice per week. The fee for 2020 is $70 for Kindergarten - First Grade and $80 for Grades 2-6.
Teams for athletes in grades K-3 are created by individual request and school. Every effort is made to keep children enrolled in a specific school on the same team. If there are two more athletes from a specific school than can fit on one team, the athletes are split as evenly as possible between two teams. Also, NO ONE is allowed to run with another grade -- no exceptions!
Teams for athletes in grades 4-6 are based upon rankings from track results. Athletes are weighted based upon their record from the previous year and teams are built to result, on paper, with evenly balanced teams. School and individual requests are not taken into account with these grade levels. It is the final decision of the Track Director to approve formation of these teams.
