The Camarillo Roadrunners Youth Football and Cheer Program is a volunteer, non-profit organization that provides the student athletes in Camarillo with an age-appropriate youth football and cheerleading program. We will promote the values of responsibility, commitment, sportsmanship and teamwork in a safe and positive athletic environment. Our program provides for the development of good football and cheer fundamentals through the leadership and guidance of qualified instruction. Our goal is to help create years of memories and friendships and to support our young athletes as they grow towards becoming responsible young adults in our community.
In 1968, just four years after Camarillo became a city, the Camarillo Roadrunners Youth Football and Cheer Program was founded by Bill Hebert-President, Dennis Freeman, Clyde & Grace Dawson, Jack Young, Bob Coffman, Shing Yabu, Jack Sengbusch and Art Pena. The Camarillo Roadrunners appreciate the opportunity to and enjoy conducting practices and playing our home games at Adolfo Camarillo High School, the home of the Camarillo Scorpions, for the past 50 years and look forward to continuing that tradition for another 50 years. The Camarillo Roadrunners have developed and maintained a great relationship between the staff at A.C.H.S. and our chapter, we appreciate their continued support of our program.
