It is the goal of the Edina Soccer Association to provide for all boys and girls of the community an equal opportunity to participate in the game of soccer at any ability level, and to have fun while building good sportsmanship, a sense of discipline and an understanding of the fundamentals of the game.
The Edina Soccer Association will encourage the active involvement of parent and community volunteers as coaches, assistant coaches and team managers with the understanding that the success of the program depends upon them, their good sportsmanship and their knowledge of the basic program.
Each individual will be treated with respect in all situations, whether a player, coach, referee, spectator or parent.
Teamwork is essential among all involved with soccer.
This is a shared responsibility. Practicing good sportsmanship starts with players and coaches, but is also required of spectators. Acceptable conduct falls within both the letter and the spirit of the rules.
Through sound programs and a good effort by participants, soccer skill improvement can be expected.
Our goal is for all to have a chance to participate depending upon the skill and commitment level. To that extent that we act according to these values, we believe we will be making a contribution to Edina soccer and to the community as a whole.
