We are as surprised as you are with the recent announcement of the NCAA canceling the CWS in June here in Omaha.  We are working very closely with  CWS Omaha along with our hotel partners to align ourselves with what their continuity plans look like.  At this point our plan is to host both the High School Division and Youth Division tournaments.  Respectively, the High School participates as well as the Youth participates will receive an email in the next few days outlining your options.

We appreciate your understanding and patience,  next tournament status update will be via email in the next few days.

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
