Oaklandon Red Storm FTT


The Oaklandon Red Storm are competitive travel softball teams for ages 10-18 years old. FTT Red Storm teams play games and tournaments only against other designated full-time travel teams. Since FTT players do not participate in the recreational league, the FTT team’s season typically runs from January through July. FTT Red Storm teams travel throughout Indiana and to select tournaments out of state. Eligible players on the team for each age group must be of that age by January 1, 2024.


The Oaklandon Red Storm is a travel softball opportunity that promotes positive self-esteem, creates memorable experiences and camaraderie. Teams are coached by strong role models who lead by example. Our coaches focus on development, respect, life lessons, fairness and character, all in a safe, welcomed and positive environment. We emphasize the value of teamwork and responsibility to overcome challenges both on and off the field. OYO travel programs are committed to meeting and exceeding expectations by delivering high-quality, fundamentally sound and competitive softball experiences.



The Full-Time Travel Oaklandon Red Storm (softball) program is excited to announce a full slate of eight teams in 2024, led by an incredible team of coaches. Please check the list below for the coach(es) for each age group along with corresponding contact information.
