Optimist is adding a division of play for PreK this year. This will be for youth 4-5 years old that have not yet attended Kindergarten.
We will not be hosting teams of 7th & 8th grade this year. If you have a youth interested in playing in the 7th & 8th grade, you can reach out to Coach Brent Wright at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Coach Wright is working to form club teams for this level of play.
Optimist Soccer has supported youth in the Niles-Buchanan-Brandywine-Cassopolis area for over 30 years. The Niles Noon Optimist Club is committed to providing funds and support to local programs and organizations that provide opportunities for youth. ALL revenue raised through Optimist Soccer go back to youth in our community. The Club is made up of volunteers that commit their time to support youth and families, promote character development and sportsmanship, promote healthy living, provide opportunity for volunteers to provide opportunity for youth to learn to play the game of soccer, and provide college scholarships to local students.
