All players and parents are required to understand these guidelines and follow them. The safety guidelines listed below are proposed additional measures to be taken before, during, and after a practices/games/tournaments. All other key prevention strategies by the CDC and Minnesota Department of Health should be followed, in order to promote safe and healthy social distancing.
Self-Screening - Players and Coaches much complete a self-evaluation symptom assessment before coming to practice, games or tournaments and anyone showing signs of symptoms must stay home and submit the “COVID-19 Reporting Form” on the Eagan Baseball webpage, so we are able to track timing for return to play outlined below.
• Symptoms consistent with COVID-19 include: ▪ New onset or worsening cough OR ▪ Shortness of breath OR ▪ At least two of the following symptoms: fever (100.4F or higher); chills; muscle pain; headache; sore throat; new loss of taste or smell
• The MDH has published a decision tree for anyone showing symptoms on return that can be found here (https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/schools/exguide.pdf). The main two paths are listed here but please refer to the link to the Exclusion Guidance document for additional details
▪ If Tested for COVID-19 receive a negative test OR alternative diagnosis from a doctor and follow their suggestion for return.
▪ If not Tested for COVID-19; you must quarantine for 10 days and be symptom free for 24 hours before returning. • Siblings and household members of anyone with symptoms should also stay home for 14 days unless the person showing symptoms is cleared using the COVID test process as explained above.
* Positive Test Results - Anyone testing positive for COVID-19 should immediately inform your head coach and submit the “COVID-19 Reporting Form” on the Eagan Baseball webpage. They should follow the imposed isolation period provided by the MDH of 10 days from first symptoms or from the test date if asymptomatic.
*Close Contact - Anyone who is exposed outside of baseball and is considered “Close Contact” should submit the “COVID-19 Reporting Form” on the Eagan Baseball webpage and stay away from team activity until contacted by the Covid Task Force to discuss timelines for return to play. (Close contact is defined as within 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes or more.) While each case is different the main ways to return are:
o COVID test: Quarantine for 5 days and have a negative COVID test result on or after the 5th day after the last exposure before returning on the 8th day after the last exposure. Note: The day of exposure is day 0.
o Do not get a COVID test: Quarantine for 10 days without any symptoms before returning on the 11th day after the last exposure. Note: The day of exposure is day 0.
Mask / Other Safety Protocols - According to updated MDH policy masks are not required while players are actively playing or practicing. - Players on the bench/dugout and coaches are required to wear masks, if a short break is needed ensure you are 6 feet away from anyone when pulling down your mask.

Eagan Baseball offers two programs: In-House and Travel.
In-house baseball is available to players from Pre-K through their senior year in high school. Some older ages will travel to surrounding communities for games, but most play for in-house will be in Eagan. See registration tab for more information on in-house schedules. In-house is a less competitive, less time intense option for players who enjoy baseball but do not want to commit to a travel schedule.
The Traveling Baseball program provides intensive skill development and a high level of competition. The program offers opportunities to develop confidence and teamwork while competing with teams representing other area communities.
Eagan Baseball follows the EAA Scholarship process. Please see the documents below for EAA scholarship information and the EAA scholarship application.
If a family does not meet the EAA scholarship requirements yet still is in need of a hardship scholarship, please submit the completed scholarship application form with an explanation of hardship needs and your application will be reviewed.
If you plan to be a coach or assistant coach for EBA during the 2018 season, you must be current in your Concussion Awareness Training. Minnesota state law requires all youth sport coaches to complete Concussion Awareness Training at least once every 3 years.
If your training is current, be sure to have your certificate with you at all times in the dugout. If you have never completed the training or need to update, you can follow this link to complete the CDC's online training module. The training only takes 30-40 minutes and can be completed at your convenience. Please be sure to print and save your Certificate of Completion.
