Oaklandon Red Storm FTT


Now's the time to begin thinking about OYO's 2022 full-time travel softball opportunities, particularly head coach selections for our full-time travel Oaklandon Red Storm program. While several coaches are returning in their current capacities for their respective age groups next year, we are also seeking quality head coach candidates in some age groups. We are seeking head coach candidates with proven success coaching teams on the travel circuit and also will adopt and embrace the ideals and values of The OYO Way and all it stands for. Player Development. Respect. Life Lessons. Character. Fairness.

As we continue to support all our 2021 rec league and travel teams, the OYO Travel Committee is also working diligently preparing for the 2022 full-time travel season beginning with this call for coach applications. We currently have head coach openings for the following age groups in the Oaklandon Red Storm program:

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, 2022.


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.
