East Ridge Athletic Association

    Welcome to the East Ridge Athletic Association (ERAA) Web Site! 

    It's an exciting time to get involved and we are glad you've come to visit.  With East Ridge High School now a vibrant (and very real) part of the local community,  ERAA is excited to offer high quality youth sports programs to area student athletes. 

    Kids from the communities of Cottage Grove, Afton, Newport, Denmark Township and Woodbury have pulled on black and gold uniforms and have taken to the fields/courts TOGETHER. Give us a call and let us know what you think.  We are off to a very strong start and we look forward to hearing your ideas on how we can continue to build something special TOGETHER...

    COVID-19 & ERAA Activities

    ERAA Sports are underway again. Our policies mirror Governor Walz’s recommendations as well as the CDC and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).

    We ask that those of you involved in any ERAA activity be conscientious of these guidelines and considerate of others. Individuals will differ in their assessment of situations and the adherence to guidelines.

    If you are uncomfortable with the guidelines, or the group your child is involved in, remove yourself from the situation. In the event the situation remains inconsistent with your expectations or personal choices, please reach out to your sport’s director and seek a resolution with them.

    We will keep you informed as the situation changes. When participating in our programs, please remember the following:

    Mask Guidelines 
    Minnesota continues to have a statewide mask mandate. ERAA recommends: 

    • Athletes practicing or competing in a sport do not need a mask. 
    • Everyone else, including coaches, spectators, and athletes NOT participating should wear a mask. 

    Please be mindful of facility rules for players, coaches and spectators. Failure to abide by facility rules may result in consequences including removal of team without refund. 

    Stay home and report if your child is experiencing symptoms
    As always if your athlete is not feeling well, please stay home. This includes exhibiting any of the following symptoms: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting or diarrhea. 

    Positive Cases and Close Contacts
    If your athlete tests positive or is determined to be a close contact of a person with a positive case, please notify your child’s coach and/or team manager immediately. Athletes will not be punished or penalized for missing practices or games due to a quarantine or symptoms.
