Hello EMLCA Coaches – As promised last year after our season was canceled, if you paid your 2020 EMLCA dues, they carry over to 2021. We did not have any awards to purchase for 2020, and the 2021 clinic we ran in March didn’t cost us any money, as only local HS coaches presented.
However, if you are new to the EMLCA or didn’t pay last year, you do need to pay your dues for this year. (It’s $40. Use the “Join/Renew” link on the main page.) We spend money on high quality plaques for all of the end-of-season awards, and then we fund a guest college coach or college staff presenting to us in the following year’s coaches clinic. So we really need everyone to do their part and pay their dues. Our rule is that teams whose coaches have not paid their dues may not nominate their players for league All-Star, which then would preclude them from consideration for All-American. Obviously, we don’t want to have to go down that route. In some cases, ADs have agreed to cover the cost of this annual due. It doesn’t hurt to ask.
