Practices will begin around August first. There can be a team meeting before the official practice start date but there should not be any practices before that date.
Teams can practice up to 4 times per week. Once games start – they can still practice 3 times a week. Teams should not have any more than 4 “events” a week. Each practice should last no longer than 1 ½ hours.
Our Jamboree will be held August 24th with official games starting September 7th. We do not have a game schedule yet so we have no way of knowing what dates the games will be on. Your coach will provide you with a schedule once it has been finalized.
The purpose for which the OBYFCL was organized is to promote the highest ideals of sportsmanship, fellowship and community unity through recreational athletics; and to provide fun, instruction, and recreation for all participants regardless of race, creed, color, sex or national origin. This will be accomplished by providing a supervised football and cheerleading program for eligible participants and an opportunity for adults to coach, supervise, instruct, officiate, or otherwise participate in the activities of the League. The League is established with and will maintain a full participation athletic initiative. Building youth, strengthening family, providing instruction and encouraging recreation are the main goals of this league.
