WELCOME!

The Park Ridge Athletic Association encourages youth development by providing opportunities for personal and athletic growth.  The PRAA promotes sportsmanship, self-esteem and the development of life skills through engaging youths in sports while providing a safe, healthy, positive environment.  Our PRAA Members, Sports Commissioners and Coaches handle a variety of tasks including running each sports program, coordinating fundraising events, uniforms and equipment, the scheduling of games and field/gym time, team organization, inter-town communication and coordination and many other things.

Without our PRAA Trustees, Commissioners, Coaches and Volunteers our sports programs would not be possible.   Become involved, and help contribute to the growth and on-going maintenance of the sports programs for your children.

UPDATED COVID PROTOCOLS FOR 2021 SPRING SEASON 

The Park Ridge Athletic Association had developed and continues to follow protocols based on those prepared by the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) regarding social distancing and masks. Periodic changes to these protocols may be announced systemwide to ensure a safe environment for all participants. Please continue to monitor emails and announcements on the PRAA website for updates. The following should help clarify any questions or concerns. 

In addition, coaches of respective sports will also communicate additional waivers required for participation in the season. Non-compliance with required documentation will not be tolerated and could result in an athlete not participating in practice or games. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.  

FACE COVERINGS 

Per revised CDC, NJDOH and NJSIAA guidance, as of May 19, 2021, face coverings are no longer required for athletes, coaches, referees, trainers and spectators participating in outdoor PRAA activities. 

It is advised all participants continue to maintain social distancing where appropriate.

REPORTING COVID-RELATED INFORMATION 

PRAA members are required to report COVID related situations involving a PRAA athlete and/or coach by sending an email to info@parkridgeathletics.com

If a coach/player/etc. is exposed to or tests positive for Covid-19: 

  1. Please email info@parkridgeathletics.com with as much detail as possible regarding onset of symptoms, and/or last date of exposure to PRAA-affiliated program 
  1. The PRAA will collaborate with the Park Ridge Office of Emergency Management (OEM) to evaluate the information/situation 
  1. Outcome/next steps will be communicated to all potentially impacted individuals as determined by OEM  

This coordinated effort will include the Park Ridge School District (PRSD). It is intended to provide consistency, with emphasis on privacy and accuracy of all information.  

Parents /coaches are prohibited from notifying teams, athletes and or anyone else in the community on behalf of the PRAA.  

COORDINATION WITH PARK RIDGE COMMUNITY 

Furthermore, the PRAA follows PRSD athletic calendars regarding COVID related events, so if PRSD athletics are suspended due to COVID, so too are events under the PRAA.
