The Northwest Optimist Club offers a great opportunity for students 1st-5th grade. Our program will teach good sportsmanship, teamwork, and basketball core values which not only include skills, but caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Every team will be overseen if not coached by Oklahoma’s own Matt Clark (see below for his personal accomplishments). Matt has been in the game of making kids better now for 8 years. Besides the Oklahoma City Area, The Matt Clark Academy has also expanded into Texas. Matt strives to teach his kids the core fundamentals of the game. Since Matt started coaching the youth in his community, he has already seen one of his players turn pro, others go to college, and others to win State Championships. No matter the age, Matt can improve a dedicated youth’s basketball IQ.
