OCYFL was established in early 1980. We are a non profit organization. Our organization is run solely off of sponsorship and fundraisers. It is truly thanks to our community that we are able to provide this program for all children who reside in the Otero county vicinity . All Commissioners and Coaches volunteer their time. No one is paid nor reimbursed for their time and efforts.
O.C.Y.F.L Is not affiliated with the city of Alamogordo New Mexico or any other sports organization.
The city of Alamogordo has graciously permitted our league to utilizes the Griggs Sports Complex for the sole use of of holding our events and games. We are required to follow all set city rules to provide insurance coverage and a release form on file for each player.

Each participant does receive a token for this event so no kid is left out. Our practices are held 5 days a week for a 2 hour maximum. This is so the kids can gain as much knowledge of the sport as they can.

How to become a coach.
To become a coach for our league is not hard to do at all. We do require that each coach does have the football experience and knowledge to pass onto his/her team. All coaches must submit a background check. All first time coaches must present a background check from WWW.sentrtylink.com this is a requirement that must be met every two years after their second year they must submit a background check from our local police department. We have partnered up with USA football and All of our coaches must take an online heads up football course. This course will provide each coach more knowledge of the sport they will become familiar with different techniques and procedures to better our athletes. This program is paid for by O.C.Y.F.L. Each team has a total sum of five coaches. Each coach is given a different task pending on what position is needed to be taught.
