Sponsor of the Month!
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.
Sponsors make what we do possible. Please show your support to our amazing sponsors and thank them for their commitment to our organization. Interested in becoming a sponsor? Click here to view our sponsors and learn more about our sponsorship opportunities.

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) with regard to 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.
The CDC affirmed that face coverings are a critical tool in the fight against COVID-19 that reduces the spread of the disease, particularly when used universally within communities.
Coaches are required to wear face coverings at all times, unless doing so would inhibit the coach’s health.
Student athletes are required to wear face coverings when they arrive at the field and for COVID safety check-in. Once done they may remove their mask to go onto the field to participate in activities relating to the sport (such as practice or games).
Student athletes on the bench or sideline (not participating on the field) are required to wear face coverings. Unless doing so would inhibit the student’s health.
Spectators and media personnel are required to wear face coverings at all times, unless doing so would inhibit the individual's health.
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 email@example.com.
If a coach/player/etc. is exposed to or tests positive for Covid-19:
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with as much detail as possible regarding onset of symptoms, and/or last date of exposure to PRAA-affiliated program
The PRAA will collaborate with the Park Ridge Office of Emergency Management (OEM) to evaluate the information/situation
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.
