Optimist Club Football Signups will begin July 1st and run the month of July.
Hosting this program costs a lot of money which is why the Optimist Club has to recoup this money through signup fees for the children that are participating.
It may be all fun and games for the kids BUT we have to ensure the safety of the children taking part is paramount.
To that end we are constantly purchasing new uniforms, padding and other football equipment.
This year a big expense has been to pay out $8,000 to recondition every football helmet to ensure maximum safety. Conditioning was completed by Schutt Sports a nationwide leader in sport equipment reconditioning (http://www.schuttsports.com/aspx/recondition/WhyRecon.aspx).
Donations are also welcome to help cover the costs of the equipment, you can contact us for more information.
