Optimist Club of Ives Estates: Welcome

Welcome to the Optimist Club of Ives Estate's Website!


The Optimist Club of Ives Estates is an incorporated Florida based volunteer non-profit organization which has been providing community programs to the South Florida community for over fifty (50) years.  Our sports programs provide innovative ways to strengthen our community and involve citizens in the lives of young people.  It is the mission of the Optimist Club of Ives Estates to continue in this endeavor to strengthen the community by providing youth with positive activities.

The hard work and dedication of the coaches, children and parents have paid off as the Thunder athletic programs have gained national attention.   Our programs give participants an opportunity to be exposed to national championship and local recreational competition as they represent the South Florida (Ives Estates) community.  Our participants are challenged  to dream of developing a bright future for themselves, teammates and community.  We want them to embrase the experience and excel to thier full potential.  We are very much excited about our youth and invite you to join the Optmist Club of Ives Estates, Inc.
