SOKOL is Czech for "falcon." SOKOL is English for "a great group of people bonded by a common ethnicity, heritage or interest". SOKOL has been in the United States since 1865 and has spread from coast to coast and from the northern border to the southern.
If you are looking for a safe place for children to learn personal discipline, physical fitness and gymnastic skills, SOKOL is ready and waiting for them. Sokol Omaha offers gym classes and social activities for teenagers, too! Still feeling competitivie in your 20's, 40's or 60's? We have a place for you, too! Instead of going over the hill, you can be going over the vault table. No one is too old for SOKOL.
Founded in 1862 in the Czech lands, which later became Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic and Slovak Republic), the SOKOL organization continues today in the United States as a vital, thriving entity. Based on founder Dr. Miroslav Tyrs' credo of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body" the member units of the American Sokol offer physical training in gymnastics and other athletics, as well as providing cultural awareness and family oriented activities. Sokol's first unit in America was started in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1865. Sokol Omaha was established in 1887.
