Catch the Optimism!
Part of something bigger
It is an exciting time to be a part of the Plainfield Optimist Club! Programs are thriving which means more Plainfield kids are experiencing the Club's commitment to bringing out the best in youth!
As a governing body, the Plainfield Optimist Board of Directors continually seeks opportunities to expand our outreach and impact throughout the community. Discussion of potential new programs stirs energy and excitement within our membership as we consider ways to offer even more to our community youth. Partnerships with local businesses support those efforts, and we're grateful to those who have made it a part of their mission to give back to their community.
We recognize that the dedication from volunteer men, women and teens in our community is what sets the foundation for growth in any of our programs. If you are interested in being a part of something bigger in Plainfield, consider joining the Plainfield Optimist Club today.
THIS IS WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO...

A Message From Soccer...
Plainfield Optimist Soccer has incrementally built its travel program to now include a limited number of teams on a 2 year cycle. Travel soccer is voluntary, and teams are selected through an open tryout. Players not interested in travel soccer, or those not selected and placed on a travel team, are able to play in the Club's recreational soccer program.
We are excited to say that interest in travel soccer opportunities has grown, allowing the Club to expand its program to now include several changes we are implementing for the coming 2015-2016 soccer calendar year. Visit our website for further travel soccer details.
Contact Adam Mathis, Director of Coaching, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
