Youth Tournament Update

Youth Age Events (10U - 14U)

Check out the Events Icon for all the information for this age group.

High school age events (15U - 19U)

Here in Nebraska we play Legion baseball for our 17 and 19uu groups.  Although we are under the Legion umbrella, we take teams of all affiliations for the Battle of Omaha.  The one cavat that we have is birthdate eligibility that we go by for these events.  

The 15u is a freshman / reserve type of event although we do have a lot of select teams that participate.  This past year we had 12 teams that competed.  Teams will play 3 pool play games with pool winners advancing to championship round.  Other teams will play a consolation game

The 17u, which is considered more of a JV type of tourney had 36 teams this past year.  A majority of the teams that play in this event are 15/16 year olds, Teams will play 5 pool play games with the pool winners advancing to the championship round

The 19u is a varsity style tourney.  This past year the midweek had 12 teams while the weekend event had 44.  Teams participating in the midweek will play 3 pool games while teams in the weekend event will play 5 pool games.  Pool winners in both events advance to the championship round

The Battle of Omaha is please to announce its partnership with USSSA Baseball.  This partnership started in 2011 as each of our younger tournaments will be considered NIT Events.  The tournaments that will be USSSA sanctioned are our 10's, 11's, 12's, 13's and 14's.  Best of all, we are offering this at an awesome price!  The entry fee includes gate fees for all coaches, players, parents, and fans; and 1 booklet of 10 General Admission tickets to the CWS.
 
A reminder, that all registration forms are located under the handouts icon.
