We are very excited to announce some changes that will go into effect next season. Starting August 1, Bellevue Elite and Papillion Outlaws are joining forces -- our new organization name will be Nebraska Stealth Fastpitch.
The boards for both organizations have worked hard to make this come to fruition. Ultimately, the rationale for making this move comes down to one thing: the desire to best serve the current and future softball families in Sarpy County. A few highlights about the merger:
· In 2021, we're expecting to have 12 or 13 teams across all age divisions.
· Our hope is to eventually have at least two teams in every age group: 8U - 18U and compete at a high-level locally, regionally, and nationally.
· Our home fields will be in Bellevue & Papillion -- this is big. Having increased field space will allow our teams more opportunities to play and practice!
· Elite's current indoor facility, the Powerhouse, will serve as the Stealth's new indoor home -- with plans to break ground later this year on a brand new 10,000 sq. ft facility right on the current property.
We want to answer a few questions that I'm sure you have right now:
· Tryouts for 2021 will be July 27-28. Teams will be formed after tryouts and our goal is to keep current teams together as much as possible while forming competitive teams at all levels.
· 2021 Player Fees start at $900 + uniforms/helmet (paid in installments throughout the year). There will also be ample opportunities for fundraising to reduce your out-of-pocket fees. Specific team fees may vary. Here is a potential break down of player fees that will include: winter training clinics, 24 hour access to our indoor training facility, training equipment, game balls, league games (20 games), and 5 tournaments (20+ games).
· Player fees will not include the uniform kit and helmet -- we are working with PrimeTime Sports to figure out the cost of uniforms and families will pay that directly to them when the time comes.
· Stealth uniforms will not change from year to year. As long as your player’s uniform fits that that WILL NOT be an annual fee after the initial purchase.
I hope you're as excited as we all are -- the future is bright for our girls and our community!
There will be a lot more information availble soon but if you have specific questions, please let me or your coach know. In the meantime, check out our new website at nebraskastealth.org
