Collingwood Optimist Youth Soccer
Collingwood Optimist Youth Soccer began in 1987 with 23 members and an enthusiastic team of Optimist Leaders. In the next 20 years it grew to meet the needs of over 1,500 local boys and girls in House League and Traveling Teams.
To meet the demand for field space, the Optimist Club spent in excess of $100,000 arranging for the building of 6 full size fields and six junior fields. While club members were the initial referees, coaches and board members, the Club became an entity unto itself over the years and in 2008 joined with the adult club to become Collingwood United Soccer.
This success story fulfilled our mandate to bring new opportunities for the youth of Collingwood.
