Select Girls & Boys
The most notable benefit of this program is the pooling of players, i.e. matching players with other players of similar ability. This creates a competitive training environment where players challenge one another and develop in the process. Registering the various teams with the most suitable leagues is an important part of this process from a player-parent satisfaction point of view.
Select teams will be formed through try-outs. Sporting Omaha FC will provide training facilities for these teams. In addition to seasonal training, the select player will participate in winter training at one of the Sporting Omaha FC official training centers. The winter training program will address technical improvement and tactical awareness within small-sided games.

Academy and Select fees increased for the 2019-2020 soccer year. The reasons for the increases are as follows:
1. NSSA / ENSA approved increased league fees
2. Rising costs associated with facility maintenance and repair
Will exclusively train at MSSA.
Additional Elite program opportunities

For all our select teams we recommend no more than 3 tournaments per season without the approval of the club DOC. The AGC (Age Group Coordinator) will evaluate each Elite team and make tournament decisions based on the strength of the team, financial conditions, and competitive needs. At the U13 and above level, the MRL reduces the need to attend tournaments although it will be necessary for older teams to attend at least some of the more well respected college showcase tournaments on the calendar (Surf Cup, President's Day tournament, Denver Cup).
