 why the Cougars are the number one youth football organization in Camarillo!

Welcome to the 2015 Season of the Camarillo Cougars.  As a founding member of the Gold Coast Youth Football League, we recently completed celebrating our 10th season, and are looking forward to starting our 2nd decade serving the youth of Camarillo.  We have outstanding and hardworking parents, volunteers, and board members, who are united in their efforts to build the character of and develop outstanding young men and young women that will benefit our community for years to come.  We are financially sound and proud to be recognized by the Pleasant Valley Parks & Recreation Department as a Camarillo Community Service Organization.


As many have heard the GCYFL has been researching youth football leagues nationally and analyzing the demographics and weight trends of youth throughout Ventura and LA Counties.   The result of their efforts, to offer a safe and competitive environment to learn to play and love the sport of tackle football, was a realignment of the age and weight divisions.  We are proud to support these updates and look forward to fielding strong teams in all 6 divisions, Mighty Mite, Bantam, Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior. 


The GCYFL has been known for its innovation and safety, bring the sport of football to more youth in our communities.  Introducing the X-Player rule to Southern CA, first in the Senior, then to all divisions, allowing for age appropriate football, instituting 2 divisions, putting experienced players and new players in separate divisions to play against like talent, not allowing bullying or gladiators to scare new player out of the sport.  Instituting background checks for all Coaches and yearly Coaches Training with a Code of Ethics for all Coaches to abide by and being a early adopter of the NFL’s Heads Up for Safety tackling program.


With strong backing from our parents and community the Cougars Football and Cheer program is looking forward to making new friends, re-establishing old relationships, working hard, having fun, all in all having a great 2015 season.
