When and how did your league get started?

The league was started in 1979 for kids to learn the game of football.

What is your league best known for?

For being the only youth football program in the Oswego area that is strictly for kids in the District 308 boundaries. We are also the longest running youth football and cheer program. 

Why did you choose the town you did to start your league? 

When we started, we wanted to give the kids in Oswego and the Oswego School District boundary a chance to learn the game of football. This way when they got to high school they would be ready.

What's something interesting about your league that people might not know?

We are a Not for Profit organization. We have four football team colors that represent our two high schools (Oswego High School and Oswego East High School). We have four teams for each color. We have 16 total football teams.

As for cheerleading, we have one squad for each of the 16 teams and our girls constantly place in the cheer competition every year. We work closely with both high schools to make sure that our kids are best prepared for high school.

Does your business offer a special deals card or program?

We don't offer a special deal card but we do have special pricing at local companies in Oswego and Montgomery. These deals are available to all families who have kids who are part of OYTF.
