The Edgewood Athletic Association (EAA) is a not-for-profit organization created to facilitate and coordinate the youth athletic programs sponsored by the Scarsdale Recreation Department (soccer, basketball, softball and tennis), within the Edgewood community, for girls and boys in grades K-8.

 The goals of the EAA are to:

1.      Encourage participation in equal-play sport programs regardless of skill level

2.      Ensure the children have a fun and enriching athletic experience

3.      Provide the opportunity to learn and improve skills

4.      Foster an environment that teaches sportsmanship and teamwork

5.      Promote respect for the game, teammates, coaches, opponents and game officials

6.      Encourage participation of parents in coaching and program coordination

 Membership:

 All Edgewood families whose children play a Recreation based sport must join the EAA. A family becomes a member by registering at www.edgewoodsports.org and paying the annual membership fee of $32 through SchoolPay.

The association uses these funds to support the athletic programs, including the purchasing of sports equipment, and the funding of physical improvements to the athletic facilities at Edgewood.  Once a family becomes a member, all children from that family, in grades K-8, are entitled, and encouraged, to participate in any of the sports programs offered by the Scarsdale Recreation Department in conjunction with the EAA.  Parents are encouraged to attend open meetings of the EAA and to become active members by coaching, being elected to the board, or offering their involvement in other ways.

The EAA provides the Edgewood community the following:

·    a vehicle to discuss issues involving all aspects of  Recreation programs

·    regular updates on the status of the current programs

·    review of the successes and challenges of just-completed programs

·    planning for the needs and scheduling of upcoming programs

·    a forum for thought on direction of  ongoing programs or new programs

·    a process to recruit and select coaches and Area Chairpersons

Area Chairpersons are the individuals who coordinate specific sports in conjunction with area chairpersons from other Scarsdale communities and the Scarsdale Recreation Dept.  Their responsibilities include the allocation of times and places for practices (the Recreation Dept. establishes game schedules). They also procure and issue the equipment needed for that sport. They are the prime contacts for issues and questions that arise during the course of the season.
