Field status will be updated here by 3pm if there are any fields closed for the day.
See our November edition of the NEW ESC Newsletter, "BEYOND THE PITCH"! Link is below.
There is recognition for teams, players and coaches. There is also a variety of articles and links to videos, documents and developmental tools, as well as important Club info.
We hope you enjoy this new communication!
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.
See the link below for a youtube video with Founder, Franz Gastler introducing one of the YUWA girls to a large audience. It is a must see! You will see some clips of our ESC uniforms in action in India!
