Battle of Omaha Youth Tournament: Ages 10u - 14U

2021 Battle of Omaha is pleased to offer a non-sanctioning tournament for ages 10 - 14.  We offer 4 games for all ages, weather permitting.  We do our best to ensure everyone is able to attend the CWS each and every night as we do our best to be off the field by 5pm.  Regardless of weather, we do not play into the evening.

The tournament cost of $900.00 for all age group’s includes your entry fee, gate fee for players, coaches and fans, 1 book of 10 General Admission Tickets to the College World Series, and Nebraska State Sales Tax.   We do offer the option to all teams to purchase additional General Admission ticket books at cost.

As mentioned, you do not need to be sanctioned to any affiliation (CABA, USSSA, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, etc.) to play in the Battle of Omaha.  The tournament will aligned with each team playing 2 pool games then being split up by either playing in a Single Elimination Championship Bracket or a Single Elimination Consolation Bracket.  If a team loses its first bracket play game, they will get one more game.  Each pool of  4 will have a mix of Gold teams, Silver teams, and Bronze teams, based on what the mix is by age group.  We will do our best with what we have and try to keep states separate as well.  Awards will be given to the 1st and 2nd place teams from the championship bracket and consolation bracket. (the tournament format may be altered due to the number of teams entered in a specific age group) We have sold-out all ages the last four years.
