T&C Sports is the organization sponsored by the Town and Country Optimist Foundation to deliver fun, high quality team sports opportunities to kids ages 3 to 18 in the north Austin area.
The sports started in 1974 with the formation of the Town & Country Optimist Club, with vacant lots and moms and dads doing all of the work to give their kids a chance to play. The ideals of the Optimists were a perfect fit with the encouragement of youth and the development of character that sports can enable. As the area grew, so did T&C Sports, eventually offering seven different sports for boys and girls, with 95 acres and 30 playing fields. For decades, volunteers continued to run the sports programs, coach and maintain the campus.
As we look at the changing landscape in youth sports, we see even more opportunity to offer high quality recreational play, as well as competitive developmental programs, with professional administration and training through our own staff and youth sports partnerships. It’s an exciting time to be involved with youth sports.
