CCA Florida 2023 Trash Tournament
A Statewide Coastal Cleanup for World Ocean Day

Welcome to the CCA Florida Trash Tournament. An event run like a fishing tournament, but instead of submitting fish, you will submit your catch of trash. This year, we're partnering with iAngler Tournament Systems in providing a unique and fun way to get outside and help clean our coastal environments. There are plenty of cool prizes to be given away. Each bag of trash equals one raffle entry. The more trash photos you submit, the greater your chances of winning one of the following prizes:

  • One (1) pair of Bajio Sunglasses
  • Two (2) Amercan Express worth $100 each
  • Eight (8) Academy Sporting Goods gift cards worth $25 each

Please refrain from submitting trash collection photos from the CCA Florida STAR Tournament. This year, we encourage even more trash collection! You have a GREAT chance of winning prizes in this one week tournament, so let’s be fair!
