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.
As we head into March we have limited spots remaining for the high school side of the Battle of Omaha
17u (June 11-14) 1 spot remaining
Midweek 15u 1 spot remaining / 19u 1 spot remaining (June 14-17)
19u (June 18-21) Only taking teams at a time
Heading into March, you can see below what is left to be filled for the 10U-14U Battle of Omaha.
We would love to be part of your plans for 2020; visiting Omaha during the College World Series should be on everyone's bucket list. Why not play some baseball while attending the CWS? Come to Session 1 to enjoy a long Father's Day weekend. Session 2 attendance will bring you many opportunities to attend games during the heart of the series. Session 3 is the exciting conclusion of pool play to see who will play in the championship series.
Register your team soon so that you don't get shut out of this event; and check something off your bucket list at the same time by attending NCAA's college baseball's premier event. Check out below how to register your team and further information about the tournament.

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
