The Camarillo Eagles Soccer Club was formed back in 1978. The original founders of the team, Lee White, Russ Pinto, Jim Freeland, and Ed Eysenring all got their start in A.Y.S.O. but were interested in expanding the competition arena to a higher level.

The first teams performed very well including El Camino Real Champions in 1978 & 80. In 1979, the Eagles 1 expanded by adding Eagles 2 and 3. By 1980 there were at 5 Eagle teams.
The original Eagle 1 nucleus played into high school together where they won the CIF State Southern Section in 1983.

In 1980, Kristi White was the first female to play for the Camarillo Eagles Youth Soccer Club. She played on the Eagles III, Under 12 boy’s team. The next year the club added two girl’s teams, Ken Eastman’s Under 19 team and Coach Hope Trevino’s Under 14 team. Kristi played on Hope’s team. Kristi played on both the Eagles club team and on the CYSA-South Select Team for the next four years. As an adult she was on the Western Regional Women’s Soccer Team and the Southern California Women’s State Select Team.
Ken Eastman was the coach of the first Eagles girls U-19 team from 1980-83. Ken later started (and coached for nine years) the Camarillo High girls varsity team, which included many of the Eagles players.
