Where are practices held? What are they like? How often?
ANA practices are held throughout the Omaha Metro in various gyms, which include but are not limited to Millard, Papillion, Bellevue, Gretna, Elkhorn and Fremont.
Our High School teams (Grades 9-11) practice 2-3 times weekly. We focus primarily on skill development, but also include team development. Our #1 goal is to help the girl improve as basketball players, and have that carry over to their high school teams, and potential college careers.
Our Youth teams (Grades 4-8) practice an average of 2 times per week. These practices range from 90 mins to 2 hours and are very focused on skill development. Our #1 goal is to help the girls become the best basketball players they can be. Winning games at a young age takes a backseat to skill development.

Does the schedule allow for girls participate in other sports while playing ANA?
Yes, we encourage girls to be multi-sport athletes. As girls enter high school we recommend that they begin to focus additional time on the sport they plan to play in college (outside of the high school sports). Many ANA girls play a Fall/Spring high school sport or both.
