Welcome to the Herndon Optimist Club!

Since 1961, the not-for-profit Optimist Club of Herndon, VA has been dedicated to providing a helping hand to the youth in our greater-Herndon-Reston community. Our youth sports programs offer over two thousand children each year the opportunity to learn sports-related skills and that responsibility, teamwork, sportsmanship, and integrity are just as important as winning. Our education-partnership programs and law enforcement-partnership programs engage the children in our community in positive ways with our school personnel and law enforcement officers.

The Herndon Optimist Club (HOC) Board is focused on and committed to delivering on our mission of service to the youth of our community. If you have any suggestions for improvement or need assistance, please use the Feedback option and a member of the HOC Board will get back to you as soon as possible.

James Passmore, 
President

“I am honored and humbled to receive this award,” remarked Emery. “I am grateful for the nomination, and I am fortunate to have been working with scores of other volunteers who have taken on coaching and administrative duties to build a successful program.”
