Youth soccer announcement

The Rushville Breakfast Optimist Club announced there will not be a Fall Youth Soccer Program this year. The club has hosted the soccer program for many years with between 200 and 300 elementary aged children participating.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the guidelines in place by Governor Holcomb and the state of Indiana for events that involve more than 250 participants, the club is unable to continue with this fall’s season. Organizers felt they do not have the manpower to enforce the State requirements, and deliver an enjoyable and high quality experience to the children participating and the friends and family who wish to watch them.

The club hopes to continue the program in the fall of 2021.
