PROGRAMS & SERVICES
The Optimist Recreation Department provides a variety
of on and off-grounds activities for the residents in an
effort to teach them the meaning of healthy, pro-social
leisure time activities.

On-grounds activities include intramural sports between
the five dorms in basketball, volleyball, soccer and softball. 
A multifunctional weight room is available for residents
as well as a game room.  Other activities include bingo,
movie nights, team building games, and special themed
holidays.  A library provides various age appropriate
reading materials.

The residents also participate in many off-grounds
activities and outings, tickets for which are often donated.  Clients also attend many cultural
and local community events.  Of course, staff supervision is provided for all activities both
on and off-grounds.

The Optimist Stars compete in the Southern California Boys’ Athletic League against other
similar agencies in football, basketball, softball, and soccer.  There are Junior Varsity and
Varsity teams.
