We had five teams win their district and make it to the State Tournament this summer. Specifically, our U15 C2 Girls team and our U17 C2 Boys had tremendous success and both made it to the State Championship game. The girls won the championship game, and the boys achieved runner-up status! Congratulations! Getting to the State Championship game is extremely difficult and these teams worked very hard to get there. The families and coaches had to drive great distances and attend multiple games against tough competition. Way to go!
We are also proud to congratulate the Edina Soccer Club teams that were awarded this year's Outstanding Ambassadors of Teams Honoring Sportsmanship (OATHS) Award. This accolade is bestowed upon teams by MYSA whose players, coaches, and cheering sideline parents demonstrate responsible, respectful, championship behavior that should be modeled by all teams. Referees throughout the state supply data to MYSA relative to which teams are worthy of consideration for the award. The Edina team recipients were the following:
U10 Girls Gold Energy coached by Erin Hansen
U13 Boys 1 Swarm coached by Neil Nelson
U12 Boys C1 Swarm coached by Steve Casciaro
U14 Boys C2 Flash coached by Jorey Erickson
U12 Girls C2 Storm coached by Nicole Peacock
Kudos to all of you, and we could not be more proud of what you have accomplished!
All scheduled games will be played rain or shine, unless lightning is spotted in the game area. All players are directed to show up to all scheduled games, even if the weather looks daunting. The decision to play or not play will be made at the field by the Referee.
If the City of Edina closes fields in the event of over-saturated conditions, the club will notify Coaches and Managers by 3 or 4pm in the afternoon via email. A notice will also be posted on the website home page if timing and access allow. If you have not heard from your coach or manager, please plan on showing up to play. NOTE: fields may be closed on a case by case basis. i.e. Creek Valley fields may be closed for the day, but Lewis fields may be playable. Don't assume that all fields are closed unless you hear that is the case.
Per the MYSA website, the following are recommended when there is a possibility of dangerous high heat index:
Heat Index Recommendations
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
Coaches should discuss the heat index with the referees prior to game being played, so that any adjustments can be made to play time.
ESC is collecting old uniforms and soccer shoes for the YUWA program. YUWA was started by a couple of Edina grads who now work with girls in India to promote their education. Soccer is a big part of this program. You can bring donations to the Park & Rec office at City Hall during their normal business hours of 8am-4:30pm Mon-Fri. Collections are taken year round.
