Omaha AAA U16 is the winningest team in NAPHL History. The have been crowned NAPHL Champions three of the last four years and won the NAPHL regular season three of the last four years. They are led again by four-time NAPHL Coach of the Year David Wilkie. Omaha U16 is always dangerous and full of strong prospects. This year will be no different. Omaha returns Sam Renlund and Logan Will at forward and newcomer Kirill Tarasov should be fun to watch. On defense Omaha returns Fargo Force Draft Pick Coltan Wilkie and In net Todd Scott should be tough to Beat. Omaha AAA U16 is always a Tough team to play against and this Year will be no exception.
 
Omaha 18U is a perennial power and always a difficult teamto play against in the league and this season will be no different. They have played in the Championship game in two of the last three seasons and won the regular season crown last year. They are led by four-time NAPHL Coach of the Year David Wilkie. Omaha will be paced offensively by 50 goal scorer and U16 scoring champion Kendrick Frost. Defensively they will rely on Garrett Anderson on defense and Maximilian Haselbacher in the net. Omaha has become one of the very best Tier 1 AAA organizations in the country and their consistency is remarkable.
