Last week the Edina Football Association lost a great member of our EFA family - Ann Dickey. Ann and her family dedicated countless hours to our community and the EFA, and we thank her and Dave for coaching and being a part of the kid's lives. For the past few years #flexforAnn spread across the country as the way to show support for Ann, thanks to the Wayzata 5th graders for joining in on the day of her funeral last Saturday. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Edina Football Family.
The Lake Minnetonka Athletic Association (LMAA) is a youth football league dedicated to helping young people in grades 3rd through 8th to learn the fundamentals of football, learn the value of teamwork and have fun doing it.
The LMAA was established in 1961, serving as the governing board for the youth football programs of its member/area organizations: Hopkins, Maple Grove, Minnetonka, Westonka, Orono, St. Louis Park and Wayzata/Plymouth.
As a developmental football league, the LMAA strives to provide a great experience for every player on the field. Our league philosophy is to not promote game scores, have playoffs, or recognize team champions; but to promote and recognize good sportsmanship. To aid in this effort, we have a form (registration form) on a Sportsmanship page in the left column. This page is available to registered coaches and referees (must be signed in to your account to view the page) to nominate a team when they feel the team demonstrated sportsmanship worthy of recognition.
All Coaching applications and Checklist Items will be tracked Through Trusted Coaches in 2017. Please refer to your associations home page for more information on how to apply and begin completing your requirements.
The Registration "Home" is not currently available.

In June 2011, the state of Minnesota passed a concussion law that goes into effect on September 1, 2011 for all youth sports both PRIVATE and PUBLIC.
In response to this law, the LMAA has created a concussion protocol and provides information on concussions for parent, coach, and player review.
The concussion information can be found the navigation bar, left side of the website.

1. USA Football Certified
2. Pass a National background check
3. Have updated concussion training
