Giving Back to Our Local Community
Since 1978, OBYL has been proud to have over 25,000 children participate in our youth softball program. The philosophy of the Old Brooklyn Youth League (O.B.Y.L.) is to promote, organize and develop recreational activities for the youth of our community, which will aid in the education of the children in the areas of teamwork, fairness, good sportsmanship, and community awareness.
OBYL is run completely by volunteers, but we also depend on the generosity of area businesses to aid in the development of the OBYL program. The registration fees collected from the players only cover less than half of the overall cost of running the league. OBYL depends greatly on sponsorships to cover the remaining costs and to be able to purchase new equipment, maintain fields, and pay for ASA certified umpires for the High School divisions.
Becoming an OBYL Sponsor is a great opportunity for you or your business to show community involvement and is an inexpensive way to advertise to over 500 Old Brooklyn families during Spring and Summer, the most active outdoor time of the year. Your Sponsorship may also be a tax deductible advertising expense.
Sponsorship also includes:
- T-Shirts – Company/Family name on the back of sponsored team t-shirts.
- Plaque – Receive a personalized plaque with sponsored team photo on it at the end of the session.
Sponsorship Fee is $250. If you have any questions, please contact us.
