Oswego Youth Tackle Football and Cheer is Oswego School District 308’s largest and longest tenured youth sports program with over 500 active participants across the program.
We are the main feeder program for both Football and Cheer for both high schools. As the only Oswego youth football and cheer program that breaks up teams by high school that they are attending, student athletes coming through the OYTF program will be best prepared to play in high school because of this partnership because our coaches and players will be taught the terminology and techniques used for cheerleading and in all three phases of football by the OHS and OEHS programs directly from the high school coaching staffs.
Our fees for 2015 will include brand new Riddell Revolution Speed Helmets and Riddell Rival Youth Shoulder Pads ($250 + total value) because safety is very important to our new board. Along with the new equipment, our coaches will all be certified, once again, in the USA Football Head’s Up program in 2015.
We are now affiliated with the Midwest Youth “Big 12” Football Conference. This new league will allow us to play teams closer to Oswego and limit our travel times. Teams in the MYFC include: Yorkville, Kaneland, DeKalb, Burlington, Plano, Sandwich, St. Raphael, and Oswego. Below are the new football weight classes. Note that there will be no striper/double striper rules.
