Optimist Club


The Town & Country Optimist Club is a non-profit organization formed in 1974 by a group of North Austin parents to offer youth sports. The Club promotes the ideals of Optimist International and supports the North Austin area by providing quality youth sports facilities and programs. Club goals are to provide opportunities for all who wish to participate and to promote an environment of learning and sportsmanship in all activities. The Club also supports youth development through involvement in selected youth-oriented community activities.

Over the years, foresighted members acquired ninety five acres of land that is now the T&C Sports campus. The facility is owned by the Town and Country Optimist Club, and operated by the Town and Country Optimist Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, under the brand name of T&C Sports.

The T&C Sports campus is Texas’ largest private youth sports facility, with 95 acres, 30 playing fields, serving more than 5,000 kids each year across seven sports programs.
