Community Partnerships

The Grantham Optimist Club Would Like To Thank The Following Community Partners For Their Help And Participation In Improving Our Club:

Performance Auto Group

Performance Auto Group Community Partnership Program

With the generous aid of the Performance Auto Group, the Grantham Optimist Club was able to upgrade our Softball League facility's benches and bleachers. 

Moreover, we are also proud to announce Performance Auto Group's support of our Performance Auto Group A's Tournament Softball Team; A select softball team, comprised of players from the Grantham Optimist Softball Program from the ages of 14 and younger, that travel Ontario to participate in regional tournaments.

Performance Auto Group was also our co-sponsor of our 2018 Family Appreciation Softball Event, donating both their time and delicious hotdogs to feed our hungry players. 

Tim Hortons

Timbits Minor Sports Program

With the help of the Timbits Minor Sports Program, we were able to outfit our Grantham Optimist Softball League T-Ball teams with uniforms and hats. 

"The Timbits Minor Sports Program is a community-oriented sponsorship  program that provides opportunities for kids aged four to nine to play  house league sports. The philosophy of the program is not based on  winning or losing, but on learning a new sport, making new friends, and  just being a kid. "

Mark's No Frills Participates Annually In Our Grantham Optimist Softball League Closing Tournament BBQ; Providing Food, Drinks, And Snacks To Hundreds Of Our Players To Close Out Our Season. 

The Pita Pit

Fairview Mall, 311 Geneva Street, St. Catharines

The Pita Pit Player of the Game has been an player favorite tradition over the past many seasons. 

After each game, a coach awards one of their players The Pita Pit Player of the Game award for an outstanding play, great effort, or show of sportsmanship. 

This award is redeemable at The Pita Pit for a free pita and a photo of the young athlete on their Player Of The Game board. 

Fat Louie's Pizzeria

384 Linwell Road, St. Catharines

Fat Louie's, home of the M.V.Pizza, generously donates dozens of meals to our Grantham Optimist Softball program for our growing, hungry players.

Every week, players in the Bantam and Bantam-Midget leagues are chosen, by opposing teams for sportsmanship and skill, to receive the gift of a free pizza courtesy of Fat Louie. 

We thank Fat Louie's for their continuous support in giving our youth a fun and memorable summer.
