Welcome to the home website of the Plainfield Optimist Club whose members are committed to 

EMPOWERING YOUNG PEOPLE TO BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE.

Plainfield Optimists take pride in the fact that our club is 130+ active members strong who serve over 2,000 local youth each year through various sports programs and youth service projects.

The Club is successful thanks to our supportive members - celebrating with us at program events; demonstrating optimism in schools, on sidelines and from the fields; reaching out to fellow optimists & the community-at-large in service; and encouraging us to keep going.

If you have an interest in the encouragement and development of youth, we invite you to become a Club member!


Spring 2020 Important Information!!

Plainfield Optimist Club
Spring 2020 Update - COVID-19

To Plainfield Optimist Sports Program Families and Club Members:
The Optimist Club is maintaining communication and alignment with the Town of
Plainfield and the Plainfield Community School Corporation as we support
ongoing directives for social distancing while also keeping optimistic that the
COVID-19 pandemic will abate and life will soon return to normal, including our
spring sport programs.
Previously we announced that we would suspend any organized sport activities
until at least April 6th. This included all practices for our spring sport programs.
At this time we are announcing that we will extend the suspension until 01-May-
2020. We still consider these programs suspended and are making plans to
modify schedules to allow spring seasons to occur if possible. We will update
everyone as soon as possible as more information becomes available.
