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!

Weather & Field Update: Thursday, June 10

ESA  is ON for tonight as we will not reach the 106 heat index as described below.  ESC games have been cancelled - but separate from ESA as they would be required to reduce the game times (per below) and with the travel component it was difficult to justify distance vs actual game play time.  

ESA's participation is voluntary and shorter rosters have been accounted for in our preparations for tonight.

If the Heat Index is...

Up to 89 degrees - Normal Play
90-99 degrees - Mandatory 2-minute water breaks per half with running time. Each half shortened by 5 min.
100-105 degrees - Mandatory 2-minute water breaks per half with running time. Each half shorted by 10 min.
Over 105 degrees - Suspend Play
For Pre K-2nd Grade: The Lead Instructor will determine the Heat Index. For 3rd Grade and older: The Site Supervisor will determine the Heat Index. Coaches should discuss the heat index with the referees prior to game being played, so that any adjustments can be made to play time. Regular season games cancelled due to weather will not be made up.

Severe Weather:   Summer weather can change quickly.  Our staff at the fields will suspend or cancel games if severe weather approaches the area at any time during the sessions.  

Summer Camps are back!

We are offering our ESA summer camps in June, July and August.

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.
