A message from the Director of Basketball

Good Evening Optimist Basketball Families.  

I wanted to send an update on the 2021-2022 Hilliard Optimist Basketball Season.  Obviously last year was a rough year for us all and with 2020 came the cancellation of our basketball season.  As of today, we are moving forward on plans to resume our league for 2021-2022.  A lot of our decisions are based on the availability of space that is graciously donated to us by The Hilliard City School District.  As we know, things are changing, again, on an almost daily basis.  As of now the season is a "GO" and registration will open on September 1st and last through October 31st.  A few things to note:

1) All updates will be made via email and posted at www.hilliardoptimist.org.  Please make sure to bookmark that page and continue to check for updates.  If you have friends who are new to our league, and may not be on this thread, please direct them to our webpage for updates as well.

2) We are looking for some volunteers to apply to be a part of our Mini-Board.  If interested, please send an email to [email protected] with "Mini-Board" as the subject line.  Please provide your name and phone number and I will be in contact with you over the next few weeks.  We will likely have monthly meetings in August, September, October, November and December (days to be determined by the availability of those who volunteer)  and wrap up meetings after each week of the season.  We will decide, as a group, if these meetings will be in person or via Zoom.

3) If you are looking for a way to keep your child in shape, enhance their athletic ability, or just looking to give them something to do, please consider Greene Speed Academy.  Their website is www.greenespeedacademy.com.  Though Greene Speed Academy is not associate with the Optimist Club, if you mention OPTIMIST when you register, a piece of your registration comes back to the Optimist Club. 

Thanks and stay tuned for more information regarding the 2021-2022 Basketball Season.
