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. 

    Decisions regarding sports and other activities in COVID-related Executive Orders and guidance take into account multiple considerations. These considerations include but are not limited to the factors that make an activity risky in terms of exposure to and spread of COVID-19; COVID-19 data and trends in Minnesota, surrounding states, and nationwide; and the well-being and economic health of Minnesotans.

    As we move forward, please remember:

    • Compliance with these guidelines is necessary to prevent transmission of COVID-19 in sports practices and games
    • Face coverings are REQUIRED for all practices and games 

    Additional information about face coverings and youth is available from the American Academy of Pediatrics and can be found here COVID-19 Interim Guidance: Return to Sports and Physical Activity.

    Players, parents, and coaches should understand that social activities outside of practices and games are also a source of transmission among teams. Social gatherings indoors should be discouraged. Permitted social gatherings must follow the Stay Safe In Social Gatherings guidance.

    ERAA asks you to please play it SAFE!
