Draining Pool Cover - Pump getting clogged

Trying to drain water off of the pool cover before we open the pool. There are lots of leaves, worms, etc. and I tried skimming as much as I could. However, the pump runs just for a minute or so before the leaves and worm clog it. Any suggestion on how to drain the cover off?
