History and Membership
The Nebraska Capitol Conference, as it now exists, was created in 1979 as a part of the conference reorganization. The old Nebraska Capitol Conference was disbanded at the end of the 1979-80 school year, and some members of the old N.C.C. joined with new members. The new group of schools elected to retain the name “Nebraska Capitol Conference.” Member schools of the old Capitol Conference in its last years of existence were Arlington, Ashland, Centennial, Elkhorn, Gretna, Norris, Platteview, Raymond Central, Wahoo, and Waverly. The name “Nebraska Capitol Conference” was adopted in reference to the location of the original conference schools in relation to the State Capitol, Lincoln. Other schools that have been part of the NCC in the past have included Bennington, David City, Platteview, and Wahoo. Platteview and Wahoo are exiting and are charter members of the new Trailblazer Conference that is organizing for 2020-2021 school year.
VISION of the Nebraska Capitol Conference
We believe that the historical nature of the Nebraska Capitol Conference as a Class C conference, and, as teams have out-grown the NCC, they have moved on or created something new.
We believe that it is in the best interest of the NCC, if we expand, to add only Class C1 Schools or C2 schools showing growth, ie, not in danger of dropping to Class D.
While there are no immediate plans for future expansion however, future applications will be reviewed individually and we will follow our approval process outlined in our constitution.
