We are an Elkhorn-based, nonprofit youth sports organization dedicated to providing a safe, enjoyable and positive learning environment. We serve families with children of all ages and all skill levels from the community and across the region. We encourage and support the holistic development of every child, teach leadership and other essential skills, while inspiring our athletes to seek excellence in all aspects of their lives. We will accomplish this by encouraging parental involvement.
We aim to develop a culture of excellence that establishes standards and expectations that are shared among all coaches, parents, players, volunteers, staff, board and the community. Every member of the organization will hold each other accountable and strive to make meaningful contributions. Our ongoing success will be determined by every individual’s character, leadership, beliefs, passion and commitment, resulting in a first-class youth sports organization. EAA has strong roots in the community dating back five decades. While the organization has grown and evolved, we remain aligned in mission, vision and values to serve youth sports and our surrounding community. Today, WE provide athletic opportunities for:
- Over 8,000 athletes participating in nine sports: cheerleading, baseball, basketball, flag football, tackle football, softball, soccer, wrestling and track & field
- Vast majority of Elkhorn Public Schools’ (EPS) students but also the surrounding communities
- More than 3,500 Elkhorn-area families served
- Sports for ALL, financial aid and scholarships are available
The Inspire a Generation, Give Like a Champion Capital Campaign is a monumental evolution in developing a dedicated multipurpose Sports Complex for our community. Time is of the essence. The need for enough quality athletic fields has been an ongoing issue for years. EAA and our supporters believe in the vision.
This plan will help us address our current needs, as well as take prudent, thoughtful steps to prepare for the future of our organization. During construction and upon completion, the multi-year project will provide hundreds of new jobs, millions of dollars in economic impact and countless benefits and amenities for the entire community.
This Sports 'Campus' will be located on approximately 140 acres of land near 264th and Ida Streets just off Highway 275, allowing for convenient access to the entire Omaha metro as well as Lincoln, Fremont and Western Iowa areas. Phase 1 is now complete! This includes six(6) full size soccer fields, an 'All-Play' barrier free field, four(4) baseball/softball diamonds and paved parking for over 1,500 vehicles. The Phase Two capital campaign is underway and will address infrastructure needs – concession stands, restroom facilities, civil engineering, storage, power/lights, and an additional eight(8) baseball/softball diamonds. The estimated cost for Phases 1 & 2 is $23 million.
We look back on our past.
We reflect on our Present.
We Dream of our future.
To help meet the demands of our growing organization, we want to reinvest in our youth and provide much needed facilities by fulfilling our groundbreaking vision for the future. With passion, generosity, bold ambition and innovative thinking we focus our efforts on building a state-of-the-art sports complex that will become a signature destination for outdoor youth athletics and community recreation − not just for the Elkhorn and Valley communities but for the greater Omaha area and the Midwest region.
