How do you say it, anyway?!
We've heard everything from
"BAY-den" to "BAD-den",
but it's "BAH-den"!
Nebraska High Schools Choose Baden February 4, 2011
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (February 4, 2011) – Baden Sports is proud to announce that it will become the Official Ball in basketball, soccer, softball and volleyball for the Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) beginning in the 2011-2012 school year. Baden will provide balls for all sanctioned NSAA events, including all state championship games.
Deb Velder, Associate Director of the NSAA said: “The Nebraska School Activities Association is looking forward to introducing Baden Sports to our member schools through a ball partnership in volleyball, softball, basketball and soccer. The staff is confident that the schools will be impressed with the products and services that Baden will provide.”
In an effort to provide a smooth transition for schools to the newly adopted balls, Baden and the NSAA will provide one free ball to every basketball, soccer, softball and volleyball program in the state. The free balls will be sent to the athletic directors at each NSAA high school in early 2011.
“We are very proud to become the Official Ball of several sports in Nebraska,” said Michael Schindler, Baden’s CEO. “Our Perfection® series of game balls is the result of many years of researching all aspects of each ball and making adjustments that truly benefit play. We are confident that coaches and players that are new to our balls will be pleased with their performance.”
