Support COBAL Baseball

COLBA baseball needs your help!

Central Omaha Legion Baseball Association (COLBA) is the only high school baseball program in downtown Omaha. Our players primarily attend Omaha Central High, an urban school with a diverse population of nearly 2700 students. Our mission is to provide summer baseball opportunities to inner-city youth, while educating them on the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and athleticism.

As an inner-city baseball program, our players come from diverse financial backgrounds. In planning for the upcoming season, we recognize that some players cannot afford their registration fees.

To support these players and to give their families some relief during this difficult time, we are asking for donations to provide need-based scholarships for the 2020 season.

This program fund is administered by the Omaha Public Schools Foundation. 100% of your donation is given to COLBA to fulfill their mission.

Storyworks Junior

Megan Moderow, second grade teacher at Dundee Elementary, is asking for a class subscription to Scholastic’s Storyworks Jr. magazine. Storyworks Jr. is a monthly magazine packed with engaging material for students – this ranges from fiction to non-fiction, poetry to reader’s theater scripts. Each magazine is 32 pages long and students would have the opportunity to take their magazine home at the end of each month. This would ensure that students have access to high-quality text options at home.

The OPS Action Plan places an emphasis on rigorous and differentiated curriculum for students. A subscription to Storyworks Jr. would allow me to enhance our reading curriculum, both in whole group and small group settings. Students will also have the opportunity to engage with Storyworks Jr. through iPads and computers, which can spark engagement in students.

Digging Volleyball

Aimee Noel, Physical Education Teacher at Spring Lake Magnet School, inspired by her work on the Wellness Committee and School Improvement Plan, would like to offer volleyball clinics for 3rd and 4th graders. She hopes to open the school gym one Saturday each month beginning in October and ending in January. The students would learn the basic skills of volleyball, the basic rules of the game, and have the opportunity to team with students they wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to meet.

The program would also allow parents to watch and be exposed to a new sport.  After Aimee completes all four clinics she is planning a field trip for clinic participants to participate in a free clinic  hosted by The River City Juniors at The Volleyball Academy in LaVista.  By scheduling this during The Volleyball Academy College Spring Tournament, students would be exposed to volleyball at the College level, as well.

Be a Burke Softball Booster

Coach Sturgeon has helped grow the Burke High School Softball program in the last 3 years. In 2018 the team went to the state tournament for the first time in 13 years. When he first arrived the team was using old soccer jerseys and there were no team helmets and some players did not have their own. Field improvements have been made and equipment has been purchased as most of the equipment was very old.

In order to continue our progress and grow our program, we are hoping to raise $5000. Eagle Mortgage Company will match donations up to $2500. The money will go to the Burke softball booster club. The money will be used help the Burke Bulldog softball team as they continue to build a top softball program. The contributions will help to improve and maintain the softball field, provide apparel for the team and support the players as they compete at a high level.

As you can see our efforts have really paid dividends to our program, but to continue we can’t do it without all of you and your support. We look forward to growing and developing our young female athletes to become productive, strong women in the future.
