Fall Season

THANK YOU FOR A GREAT 2020 SEASON!

Thank you for a great season! 

Look for information this winter for Summer / Fall 2021 Registration

COVID-19 REMINDER

This is a reminder to all parents, coaches and players to please remain vigilant in your return to play COVID safety procedures. Continue to monitor social distancing requirements and if anyone is feeling ill with COVID-like symptoms they should not participate. There have been isolated cases of positive COVID results in players and coaches this summer in other programs. It is important to report positive COVID results to myself (Tina Wrucke) immediately and to follow MDH recommendations for quarantine. Our number one priority is the safety of our players and families.

All of our sports programs will be following safety procedures as it relates to practices and games, as recommended by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). That guidance can be found here:

https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/sportsguide.pdf 

The following procedures will be followed for the EAA XC program for Fall 2020;

- When kids arrive to practice they should be wearing their mask and go right to their assigned pod. 

- All coaches, 100% mask compliance unless actively running when social distancing cannot be maintained. 

- Parents, please remember to distance yourselves from the pods.  Parents/unregistered siblings should not be near the kids practicing or on the field/track.  When possible, please only have one parent and no siblings at practice. 

- All kids should hold onto their masks throughout practice and wear as much as possible when not running / actively participating in drills.  This will be the protocol for meets, so we need to keep getting used to this procedure. 

 

MISSION STATEMENT:

2019 Team

To create and foster a lifelong love of running by building trust and confidence in one's self.

CROSS COUNTRY - FALL 2020

We are very excited to kick off our 8th year of youth cross-country program in Eagan!

COVID-19 UPDATES FOR FALL 2020 SESSION 

EAA continues to follow guidance set by the MDH  for youth sports - you can view the current guidelines on their website at the MN Department of Health

At the time of registration opening, we are unsure if we will be able to hold meets as we have in the past.   If we are not able to host/attend competition, we will do more intra-squad meets and I'll try to make them seem as close to the real thing as possible!   I am working with the other program directors to determine what the meets could look like and if it is still reasonable to have them.  

As for practices, we will practice in groups of 25 or less outdoors as is allowed by the MDH at the current time.  Thank you for your understanding, patience and assistance as we all try to navigate youth sports during COVID19. 

-----------------------------

The main goal of the EAA Cross Country program is to provide an enjoyable experience for kids interested in running. The program is open to boys and girls entering grades K-6th in the fall of 2020. Our goal is to highlight the importance of team, friendship and the opportunity to develop basic skills in distance running. During the season we emphasize having fun by incorporating relays, obstacle courses, and other fun activities into our training. 

The kids will have the opportunity to participate in middle school and high school meets and will be competing in the mile distance with kids of similar age and abilities from the neighboring cities of Apple Valley, Rosemount and Lakeville and Farmington.
