The EBA offers an in-house program for boys in Kindergarten through 8th grade and girls in Kindergarten-3rd Grade. An in-house league is one where teams play just Edina teams. Rec leagues play teams from other communities, possibly having to travel to a nearby city to play. For Girls in 4th-8th Grade, please refer to the Rec. League information, found HERE (or under the rec. league Grades 4-12 tab)

For complete program information about our programs, please refer to each age group information page.

For all in-house and recreational league teams, parents will coach.
