Sponsorship Information for Teams

For information on how teams can earn the ability to have a team logo on their helmets as well as our exciting news for teams to retain their own team colors and team logos on their jerseys. Posted on facebook:

BIG NEWS....BIG ANNOUNCEMENT....BIG SHOUT OUT TO
board member Chris for spending endless hours searching for a way to meet the demands of the OCYF registration process and the new needed timeline while keeping in the consideration of OCYF'...S history and unique quality jerseys, while containing costs.

PRESENTING A SAMPLE OF 2014 OCYF JERSEYS. This is a mock up of a Falcons jersey and a Broncos jersey (yes, we know the Broncos is more gold than orange - color names need to tweaked). We are using a new process, called sublimated as well as a new vendor. The jersey is an Alleson jersey (mfg of big "name brand" jersey). So, the quality and sizing is that of a well built jersey. The color choices are endless as well as offering OCYF four different design choices. The jersey's come all white and then go through a process of printing -color and designs onto each individual jersey. Of course all player's jerseys will be personalized with players name and choice of number. If a team brings in their "helmet" sponsorship of $500 (please see the ocyf website), the coaching staff of that team and the apparel committee will work together to create their teams jersey this year. The design, the color (any), the numbers (solid, logoed, faded, camo), higher level sponsor logos will be on the jersey's as well. We will keep the name Oak Creek on the front of the jersey but the team name's logo (ie: Broncos) can be incorporated on the front or in the numbers as you see in the samples. The possibilities are endless with the new process and we are really excited to share this. If teams do not wish to seek a sponsor their jerseys will be decked out in Oak Creek Color combinations of blue, black, grey and white with awesome design options as well. Way to go OCYF!!!!!

Please click on the link below, this form was written specific to helmets but as a new vote came on 6/8 by the board it does include individual team jerseys for helping bring in a sponsor of $500.

Team Sponsor Information

 
2014 SEASON IS OCYF' 10TH YEAR OF FOOTBALL -

OCYF with much consideration has deteremined the restructure of the league is warrented and has made a decision to streamline the variety of jersey combinations and to have more uniformity within the Oak Creek Community.   Preparing a long term plan in which we can focus on ways to better the education and experience of learning football is our continual goal.  Teams will continue to have quality jerseys which will be personalized with their own numbers and names, and an actual proper fit, determined on 7/27 equipment hand out day.  OCYF will supply helmet logos, a common design.  However, we recognize the history that some teams have with their names and  to support that history while stressing the importance of sponsorship a plan is in place. On Monday April 14th, the sponsorship page will open, there will be details on how teams can retain their college/nfl/personalized logo for their helmet.  Please check back then.

Some of the reasons for making the change include:

 Not enough time – not enough time for sizing, ordering, adjustments, error corrections

  1. Will allow the OCYF board to focus on other items, which include: fundraisers, apprentice program, tournament team, etc. All of these have great benefit to the league in addition to building community relationships.
  2. Not enough equipment control, which results in additional hours for inventory, handout/exchanges and lack of equipment when needed.
  3. Eliminates many hours that will be used to focus on building the league. (400 hours were spent on live registration, 30 hours in wait list registration, 32 hours for jersey pickup)
  4. Will minimize the complaints in regards to individual uniforms
  5. THERE SIMPLY IS NOT ENOUGH VOLUNTEERS
  6. There are 2-3 extra jerseys ordered per team and streamlining the jerseys will eliminate the $2500 -$3200 that is thrown away each season

 Solutions to current jersey issue include:

  1. Eliminate live registration
  2. Extends the draft date 6-7 weeks
  3. Extends Coach selections
  4. Delays the use of a waitlist
  5. Use four colored jerseys (black, silver, white, blue)
  6. Focus more on the wish list items
  7. More coaches to help with equipment sizing (more knowledgeable and will minimize exchanges) / Allow for equipment hand out to be more defined
  8. Shortens the gap for growth and improper measuring (Jersey throw away $2500 - $3200 yearly savings)
  9. Time management for apparel sales
  10. Financial savings for players who leave the OCYF program
  11. Brings more community to the league

Please continue to watch for updates in regards to registration, tournament teams, camps, and special programs.  Thank you for your patience in this season.
