WELCOME TO THE HOME OF THE US OPTIMIST DEVELOPMENT TEAM
IMAGINE. BELIEVE. ACHIEVE.

BIGGER OPPORTUNITY > BETTER RESULTS

Building skills and raising the bar across the country.

Learning, practicing, and mastering the basic skills of sport is one of the foundations of coaching, sports performance, and athletic training.  As we raise the bar for our Optimist Athletes; their goals are the only goals we have in mind.

ENHANCED DEVELOPMENT - Regional clinics and national meetings provide detailed feedback and ongoing dialogue from coaches.

CREATING PATHWAYS - Develop and prepare sailors for future invitations to the National Team.

GOAL SETTINGS - Educating host venues, programs, parents, and sailors about realistic goal setting within the optimist class.

SKILLS TO PLAY FOR LIFE - Give all youth sailors the skills to play for life within the sport of sailing wherever the sport may take them.
