League History

 1971, Jim Halliburton envisioned a football league that would bring the excitement and enjoyment of full contact football to the youth of Santa Barbara's south coast. Little did he imagine that over five decades later this league would still be alive and well.  In the last 50 years, some 20,000 players have played for Santa Barbara Youth Football League competing along-side with teams from El Rio, Carpinteria, the Santa Ynez Valley and Southern Santa Barbara County.  Today, Santa Barbara YFL fields between 6-8 teams in 6 divisions for youth between 6 and 14 years of age.  It's up to all of us to ensure that this league continues for yet another 50 years as we endeavor to teach our youth the values of commitment, teamwork, sportsmanship, endurance, physical conditioning, leadership and a winning spirit. Thank you Jim, for your vision and commitment to the positive growth of Santa Barbara's youth.
