Join the Catchball Movement

Catchball, the largest social/sports league for mothers in Israel, is coming to Omaha July 1st and 2nd! Leagues are a combination of sports and community where women demonstrate good sportsmanship, friendly and professional competition, fair play & positive physical activity. Catchball is a variation of volleyball where players catch, pass and throw the ball using a regulation-size volleyball and court. We are proud to welcome three players and one coach from our Partnership region in Israel to teach Catchball to our community. Classes and events are FREE and open to ANY woman over 30 (mama or not). Jewish or Non Jewish, everyone welcome. Join us for this once in a lifetime opportunity!
