The purpose of Okinawa Youth Football is to provide a quality youth football and cheer program with emphasis on developing athletes while promoting safety, fun and participation for all; to advocate good sportsmanship, respect, and to honor the game. Through the encouragement of teamwork, self-discipline, leadership and academic achievement, our commitment is to promote a positive culture that builds self esteem and instills the importance of both athletics and scholastics, which go hand-in-hand to foster confident, responsible, well-rounded young men and women.
Founded in 2008, Okinawa Youth Football (OYF), is a Non-Profit Organization that provides Youth Football and Cheer for Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) and U.S. Government Contractor personnel living in Okinawa, Japan. OYF focuses on sportsmanship and teamwork, teaching youths from the ages of 5 to 14 years old the fundamentals of football and cheer.
Okinawa Youth Football (OYF) is staffed by a talented and dedicated team of volunteers, coaches, football players, cheerleaders and leaders with decades of experience. The staff is eager to share their knowledge and enthusiasm. Many of them return year after year because they enjoy working with the next generation of football players and cheerleaders.
Our coaches also utilize the time with the kids by sharing with them important facts and information involving key issues that they face on a day to day basis. Every year we try and improve what the league offers children, both physically and mentally. We hope that by the time the season ends, kids have a better feeling of self worth and are motivated to become a better athlete and a better person.
