The Foothill Conference, as it is known today, was formed
in 1988. However, the roots of the conference can be traced to 1981
when the football-only Foothill Conference was formed.
The Foothill Conference was an offshoot of the Southern
California Conference, which included many of the Los Angeles based
community colleges. Founding members of the Foothill Conference were
Antelope Valley, Citrus, Chaffey, Desert, East Los Angeles, Mt. San
Jacinto, Rio Hondo, San Bernardino Valley and Victor Valley colleges.
Since its founding days, two colleges, East Los Angeles
College and Citrus College, have left the conference. Barstow College and Cerro Coso College joined later as full time participants. Currently the conference is hosteding other Southern California Colleges in Track and Field and Golf.
