OCYFL is supported entirely by our community. From our local businesses who sponsor our league and teams with monetary donations to our volunteer citizens who coach and officiate games. We appreciate any and all help. The children of Otero County, Lincoln County, and Dona Ana County can thrive and develop a love and respect for the game here with OCYFL. Please contact our league officials for information on how you can help our youth thrive.
Come out to Griggs Fields to support the Pee-Wee and Youth tackle Teams from September-November on Saturdays from 9am to around 3PM. Please remember OCYFL players are our Future High School Players!

How do I become a coach?
Please submit a volunteer form with a background check from your local police department to any league official via in person, email, or mail. This is a requirement that must be met every season.
OCYFL requires that each coach has the football experience and knowledge to pass on to his/her team. Our head coach positions for 2019 are full, but while availability permits we can place you as an assistant coach.
We have partnered up with USA football and all of our head coaches must take an online heads up football course. This course will provide each coach more knowledge of the sport and they will become familiar with different techniques and procedure to better our athletes.
Each team can have no more than five coaches. Each coach is given a different task dependent on where their knowledge and skills will benefit the team.
What does my registration fee cover?
