The So Cal Fillmore Bears is looking to expand their organization by adding additional football teams and just last week we have officially added cheerleaders to our organization. Under the direction of Katie Aguilar a new cheer squad is taking shape with the addition of almost 20 girls and counting. The cost is approx $300 per cheerleader with a $25 registration fee. There has been a request to field additional teams this year in our senior division of 13 and 14 year old boys. As well as the Gremlin division made up of 6 & 7 year olds. We are also looking to field a Bantam team made up of 10 & 11 year olds. This Sunday March 23 there will be sign ups at Luv2Dance Studio 341 Central Ave from 12:00-2:00pm. We would like to thank Sandra Cummings for allowing us to hold our sign ups at her studio. The cost for football is $175 per player and if a team is not able to reach the minimum number of players a FULL REFUND will be given as should be the practice and policy for all Non Profits. Thank you for your support and assistance as we move forward to give our families an option to play football that is much more affordable and led by experienced coaches. Here are the weights for the PYFL we feel these weights and ages give a smaller chapter such as ours a better opportunity to play with other larger chapters.

They just competed at a Spirit Club International Cheerleading Competition in Ontario, where Team White and Team Black came home as champions winning 1st place.  To put the icing on the cake, Team White won Grand Champions, with the highest score overall.

The SoCal Youth Football Organization will have one team playing in the larger and more competitive Pacific Youth Football League for the 2014 season. We hope to continue to grow and have more teams next year as part of the SoCal Bears. Our nickname reflects the state bear as we pay respect and homage to the state we all live in. Our color scheme will be royal blue, white, and black as we pay respect and homage to Fillmore High School. Our player fees are considerably less than the Fillmore Raiders as we will charge $175 per player. We continue to request sponsorships and donations through corporations, local businesses, and private citizens in and around Fillmore. We would like to thank everyone that supported our attempt to give everyone in our community an option as to where their child can play football and in the future where their child can be a cheerleader.

With the new TV show “Friday Night Tykes” making a big splash and creating a national interest, a non profit has been created in Fillmore Ca. SoCal Youth Football has been formed and is in the process of seeking sponsors and donations to help a team from Fillmore and other nearby cities to fly to Texas and play one of the teams from the hit TV show. The goal is to create an annual game that will pit a team from California versus a team from Texas. The new non profit does not interfere with the current Fillmore Raiders program as the game in Texas and other tournament participation will come after the season and perhaps before in the spring or early summer. The goal is have a core group from Fillmore along with other kids from other cities on the 25 man roster. If you have any questions you can contact Ram Medina at the team website www.socalyouthfootball.org or email ram8724@sbcglobal.net

Oxnard College Athletics is proud to announce Ron McClurkin, a full-time faculty member in the PE/Health Department, as the Head Men’s and Women’s Basketball Coach for the 2014-15 season. "Coach McClurkin has tremendous experience coaching in the conference and brings many intangibles to the position. We are confident that Ron is the right coach to bring both basketball programs back to a high level of success,” said Athletic Director Jonas Crawford.

The appointment brings Coach McClurkin full circle. He was head coach for the Oxnard College men’s team from 1993-2007. During that 14-year span, McClurkin amassed 194 wins and three WSC Championships (2000, 2002, 2003). McClurkin was the head coach at El Camino College (1988-1992). He also led LA City from 1992-1993 and most recently, West LA from 2010-2012.

“I’m excited for the return of a new era in Condor Basketball,” said McClurkin. “I’m happy the program was brought back in time to recruit some excellent local students. I enjoyed working with players like Danny and Juan Guzman, Paul Guerrero, Jess Pena, and Mike Oranda (in my first stint at Oxnard College), who are now professionals in the community. We will continue that tradition in the coming seasons.”

“It’s great to have a full-time coach back in the OC Athletic Department. Ron will ensure that all student-athletes are provided maximum opportunity and support for achieving their academic goals and have the best possible environment to compete to the fullest extent of his or her capability,” commented Crawford.

Any men or women interested in playing basketball for the Condors are encouraged to contact Ron McClurkin at 805-986-5800 (x2075) or by email at RMcClurkin@vcccd.edu.

 

The Oxnard College Athletic Department is proud to announce the reinstatement of Women’s and Men’s Basketball for the 2014-15 school year. Reinstating Oxnard College’s Basketball programs will provide an opportunity to extend the mission of being a multicultural, comprehensive institution of higher learning. Oxnard College empowers and inspires students to succeed in their personal and educational goals.

Meetings were held with students, faculty, staff, and friends to gather feedback. A variety of factors were considered in making the final decision, including the impact on student life, college-community relations, and the role of athletics as a rallying point for the vitality of the institution.

The Condors will field both Women’s and Men’s Basketball teams for the 2014-15 season. Scheduling, recruitment of student-athletes, and many other pertinent logistical details will need to be addressed soon. Plans are underway for a full coaching staff to be in place before the end of spring semester so that recruiting can take place.

“It’s a breath of fresh air for our department and college,” said Athletic Director, Jonas Crawford. “This reinstatement is a great sign that our institution is on the rise and shows the tremendous value our administration has for athletics.” Oxnard College President, Dr. Richard Durán, commented, “I am pleased to be able to restore two athletic programs to provide opportunities to develop students outside of the classroom.”

If anyone is interested in playing for the Condors next season, please contact the Oxnard College Athletic Department at (805) 986-5825 or email Jonas Crawford, Athletic Director, at jcrawford1@vcccd.edu.

 
Cross Country to begin this fall, Baseball next spring

After a two-year hiatus, the springtime cracking of bats hitting balls will return to Moorpark College in the 2015 season. And, the women’s cross country runners will soon have male accompaniment on their hilly runs through Moorpark. On Thursday, it was announced that baseball and men’s cross country will be reinstated at Moorpark College. Both programs were victims during California’s worst budget crisis in history two years ago.

“It is an unbelievable feeling to have these opportunities restored to the deserving student athletes of East Ventura County,” said Athletic Director Howard Davis. “While we suffered the darkest days in Raider Athletic history two years ago, we will not only put this crisis behind us, but it will serve like the pruning of a fruit tree. Our athletic program will come back stronger, healthier, and more fruitful than ever before.”

The two sports were reinstated through the college’s annual program planning process. Men’s Track and Field was also considered and will be re-evaluated using the same process next academic year. “The state revenue generated from the added baseball and cross country students won’t reach our campus for 18 months,” said Davis. “So, there will be a time gap between paying the bills and getting paid. Nonetheless, adding these sports is in the best interests of Moorpark College on many fronts, including financially.”

In announcing the reinstatement, College Interim President Dr. Bernard Luskin and Executive Vice President Dr. Lori Bennett noted several ways in which these programs meet the strategic planning, enrollment planning, and the student success and equity goals set by Moorpark College.

For the near future, the athletic department will be responsible for non-salary operational costs associated with these programs. “We are already planning major fundraising events to capture the excitement of the campus and the community in bringing back these programs,” said Davis. “When they were suspended, we heard from hundreds of devastated community members. We hope and believe the same people, and many others, will be there to assist us in our fundraising efforts.”

“Since these programs were cut, we have received great on-campus support, developed corporate partnerships, and enhanced community ties,” said Davis. “The loss of these programs, especially America’s pastime, at Moorpark College shocked many people. But, it also served to enlighten them to the need to become more involved in decisions being made on our campus. That has been, and will continue to be, the rainbow in this horrible storm.”

Recruiting will begin immediately. Mario Porto will return as head baseball coach. Traycie Kephart, head women’s cross country coach, will also coach the men’s cross country team. In its last baseball season, 2012, the Raiders were champions of the WSC. Summer session training courses will be offered for student athletes in both sports.
