Oswego Cobras Baseball is a premier travel baseball team, which was started with one team in the early 2000's by a couple of dads who wanted a high quality, competitive baseball experience for their kids. At the time, there was only one team in Oswego at each age group with the Oswegoland Pony Baseball, which is now OBSA.
In 2007, we incorporated as a not-for-profit organization and the Cobras began growing fast. One of our most significant achievements was obtaining a 20 year contract to use Oswego East High School baseball fields. Working hard to keep a positive relationship with Oswego High School, School District 308 and the Park District is very important to us.
Although most of our players come from Oswego, we have players from other areas as well. Players come from Kendall, DuPage and Will counties. Many are from Naperville, Plainfield, Bolingbrook, Yorkville, and Aurora. Our teams play in the KCBL, WSBL or ITBL and attend many local, Game Day, JP Sports, Prime Time, PBR and various out of state tournaments. The schedule is decided by the coaches and parents of each team.
Our mission is to provide opportunity for dedicated children looking for more games at a higher level of baseball competition and to provide these opportunities for families at a reasonable price. We do this through events like our Silent Auction Banquet and other fun events. This helps everyone feel like family...the Cobra Family!
Like Dave Schurr (President, 2006-2012) says, "Once a Cobra, always a Cobra!"
The Cobras' expansive training facility is located just across the Oswego border off of Route 30 and South Lake Street into Montgomery. The 16,000 square foot space has turf flooring,five (5) batting cages, three (3) portable pitching mounds, and a large open space.
One team has full use of the facility at a time and is able to use the open area for fielding drills, strength, agility, power, speed, plyometric and any other type of training. The equipment is already there for you to use or feel free to bring your own and create your team's age-appropriate fitness program. Play the music loud and get those kids moving!
This facility is available year-round at no additional cost for Cobras teams through our scheduling system.
(Coaches and parents determine training, game and tournament schedule for their team.)
