We have some "Quaking News": NEBRASKA EDGE AND NEBRASKA QUAKES HAVE JOINED FORCES! 

Stronger together, here are a few examples:

 

  • A youth program which elevates softball at the earliest age groups and maximizes opportunities to build, grow, and maintain strong teams.
  • Local, regional and national programs will provide greater opportunities for our talented softball players to play in the most competitive environments.
  • Focused on preparing girls for high school softball, in addition to internal staff and coaches that are experienced in fostering college recruitment. 
  • Indoor/outdoor facilities unmatched by any organization, including the new MD West ONE Sports Complex.

*THE TWO ORGANIZATIONS WILL BE FULLY MERGED INTO ONE SITE/STRUCTURE AFTER THE 2022 SEASON
