Omaha Aces girls team 

Goals and Expectations

The Omaha Aces Girls Basketball Program is passionately dedicated to serving the youth of the inner city of Omaha, striving to support their academic and athletic aspirations. As a women-led organization with an all-female coaching staff, we are committed to breaking barriers and demonstrating to our girls that they can thrive in athletic spaces traditionally dominated by men. Our program goes beyond the court, emphasizing the importance of education and fostering a supportive environment for the holistic development of our young athletes. Join us in empowering the next generation of female leaders both academically and athletically.


The following guide our program:

  • To use basketball as a platform to teach life lessons, character development, leadership, handle adversity and work in a team setting. We believe that these disciplines can be used on and off the court and we take every opportunity to instil them into our athletes.

  • To develop a basketball program that is accessible to athletes who desire to execute excellence. We aim to break down the silos created by financial situations, abilities, and demographics in order to give every athlete an opportunity to be successful on/off the court.

  • To improve basketball skills. We want our athletes to be the best athletes they can be. This requires a lot of practice, training, and working on weaknesses. We will push them to work harder than they want to.

  • To develop quality individuals who value integrity, fairness, responsibility, and maturity. We expect our athletes to approach every practice and game with class. This means demonstrating good sportsmanship and proper basketball etiquette by respecting the opposing players, coaches, and officials.
