Welcome to the online home of the Edina Soccer Association. We are a 501(c) non-profit organization located in Edina, MN.  Incorporated in 1974, we've been providing
recreational soccer to the Edina community for over 47 years!

2021 Spring/Summer Player Registration is OPEN!

We start our Spring/Summer season on May 17th and run through mid July.  Our league is open to Grades Pre K (starting K in Fall 2021) through 12th grades.  To learn more and to register, visit our registration link below.


In order to assure that there is a full crew assigned to every match for our soccer association, we need more referees. Adults: this is a great way to spend time with your kids while making money!
To learn more, please join us for an informational ZOOM meeting:  Saturday, March 20th from 2-3pm.   We have a Junior Referee program launching (not requiring USSF certification).  

The Minnesota State Referee Committee has made some changes to the new referee process:
  • All new referee requirements can be completed ONLINE at 
  • There is no in-person clinic!
  • You can complete the process at your own pace, all online. 
  • New Referee certification is good all the way through December 31, 2021 (as is any certification done earlier in 2020).
You can earn anywhere between $18-$25 a game.
Any questions please email:


This policy has been developed to address the growing (and unfortunate) trend of referee abuse in youth sports, in general, and youth soccer, in particular.  Our policy, as set forth in the document below, is simple: Any physical or verbal abuse of referees is as unacceptable as physical or verbal abuse of players.  It is never acceptable for spectators to criticize referees, verbally or otherwise, at an ESC event.

See the link below to view the new policy in it's entirety.
