Omaha's most prominent civic leaders joined forces during the fall of 2003 to form the Omaha Sports Commission. The OSC was originally created as a committee to MECA but in spring of 2004 it became a stand - alone 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. The vision of the Omaha Sports Commission is to make Omaha the leading amateur sports community in America. Our mission is to create a positive economic impact for Omaha and the region through attracting, hosting and supporting amateur sporting events. Along with the 2008 US Olympic Team Trials for Swimming, the OSC has proudly assisted in hosting many NCAA events and looks forward to co-hosting both the Division I and Division II NCAA Wrestling Championships in 2010.
