Suburban Stampede Baseball

Suburban has developed and supported select / travel teams for both boys and girls for over a decade. Nearly 150 boys and girls represent Suburban through the select program, with many having initiated their playing careers in the Suburban in-house leagues. Suburban teams are very competitive in some of the top leagues in the Omaha area. Many Suburban Stampede & Pride players have gone on to play at local area high schools.

Program Goals:

  • Improvement in game fundamentals
  • Fair playing time for all players with an opportunity to learn multiple positions
  • Manageable increase in games vs. in-house
  • Emphasis on the selection of players with a history in the Suburban organization

Important Information:

  • Tryouts in July for following year
  • Season runs from late March or early April to early July.
  • Additional practice time required, with teams beginning optional practices as early as January or February.
  • Dedicated in season practice facility for Stampede teams to use.  
  • Costs for the additional games and equipment will be borne by the players families. 
  • Most teams annual budget is $900-$1000 per player
  • Blue teams can expect to be scheduled for 50 games including 6-7 Tournaments, Green teams are scheduled for 42 games including 5 tournaments.  
  • Most games will be played in the Omaha Metro area with very limited to no regional travel to help control costs to families.  

2013-14 Boys Travel Program Update

The Omaha Suburban Athletic Association offers a Boys Select Baseball Program for age groups 10-14, the Suburban Stampede. Tryouts for these teams will be held July 1st-9th 2013.  These open tryouts are posted in the newspaper, website and on the dugouts at the fields. We encourage any young man who plays in our in-house program to try out.  

Starting in the 2012 season we have developed a second Stampede team in the 11s and 12s age group.  Those teams will advance to next year and we denote the higher strength team with the Blue designation and the developmental team as Green for each age group.  We intend for the 2014 season to have a Blue and Green 10's, 11s, 12's, 13's and 14s.  We are also starting the program a year earlier and adding a Blue & Green 9s teams for the 2014 season.  We would welcome any other inquiries at other age groups from existing players or coaches.  

The 2013 season is currently in progress and we are enjoying a strong season from our teams.  You can look at their current standings at www.nebraskausssa.com.  

In the 2012 season our 10s team won the AA State Tournament, Congratulations to Coaches Vosik, Vollmer, Bullock & Adkins for that great achievement.  Our 12s team won the West Omaha Classic and Holiday Park Double Play Tournament in Des Moines.  They were runner up in the Papillion Days and Nate Pullen Tournaments.  They finished 6th at AAA State and also competed in the Open State Tournament losing their final game 3-2 in 9 hard played innings!  

In the 2011 season the 11 and 12 yr old teams finished strong and competed in the AA Nebraska state tournament with the 12 yr old team winning the State Title!  Congrats to Coach Hemphill his staff and players on that outstanding accomplishment!. Our 13yr old team competed in the AAA Nebraska state tournament. The Stampede 11’s ended their season winning the consolation bracket in the AA Nebraska state tournament and finishing the tournament w/ a 5-1 record.
