Santa Barbara Youth Football Moves to Gold Coast League

The Santa Barbara Youth Football League is stepping up to higher level of competition.

Organization officials decided to leave the Tri-Valley Youth Football League and join the Gold Coast Youth Football League. The move puts Santa Barbara teams against teams from Camarillo, Ventura, Fillmore, Simi Valley, Newbury Park and Santa Paula.

Over the past several seasons, the various age-group teams of SBYFL have played teams from Ojai, Nipomo, Santa Ynez, Vandenberg and others.  

"The SBYFL board members are excited to increase our level of competitiveness and dramatically increase the amount of teams for us to compete against this upcoming season," said SBYFL interim president Troy Tremblay.

Santa Barbara YFL was established in 1971 and, compared to recent years, now has the highest number of kids participating at all levels, according to league officials.

"This program has grown stronger because of our reputation of coaching fundamentals of the sport and, more importantly, teaching excellent sportsmanship," said Tremblay.

The Gold Coast Youth Football League is part of USA Football, the official youth football development partner of the NFL.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
