The Newhall-Saugus Athletic Club formed in 1964 and initially offered a Pop Warner (tackle) football program for pre-high school age boys (9-14) as a feeder into Hart High School's
football program. (Hart was the only local high school at the time.) The original football coaches were all Hart High graduates. The mascot, Warriors, derived from Hart High's mascot, the
Indians; and the official colors chosen for the club teams were Hart High's colors: maroon and gray.
The organization added a track and field program and cheerleading, and it occasionally
offered other sports including basketball and a bowling league. In time, the Newhall-Saugus Athletic Club evolved into the Santa Clarita Valley Athletic Association (SCVAA).
Hart switched to red and black in 1966; the Warriors kept their maroon and gray and eventually added gold.
