ABOUT TOWN & COUNTRY OPTIMIST CLUB:

The Town & Country Optimist Club (T&C Sports) 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.

The Club also supports youth development through involvement in selected youth-oriented community activities.

The Value of Playing Flag Football

With the continuation of the NFL Flag Football program hosted by T&C Sports this season, it is a great responsibility to organize the practices and games that your child plays with T&C Sports.  We appreciate the opportunity to help reveal to kids the joy of competitive sports.  

Spring NFL Flag Football registration is open.  If you are exploring your options for this Spring season, give flag football a careful consideration.  It is much more different than the flag football games that you may have played when you were a kid. 

We strive to provide a foundation that gives children the option to play football with the same fitness and competitive benefits of tackle football, but with less risk of injury.  This program allows parents to wait until later in a child’s development before introducing them to the much more intense demands of tackle football.  

Along with the physical benefits of playing a sport like flag football, we focus on character-building benefits for children, such as teamwork, hardwork, positivity, humility and good sportsmanship.  While  character building and social skills are certainly major benefits to participation, let’s not forget that it’s also fun and a great way to make new friends!
