About Clearwater for Youth:
Clearwater for Youth (CFY) was incorporated as a not-for-profit, tax-deductible organization, in 1972, to help its community youth reach their fullest potential through enriching and productive activities. Thousands of children and dedicated volunteers have participated in a variety of CFY sports activities throughout the years. The focus of CFY has always been supporting programs that encourage character building, sportsmanship and teamwork. At one time, CFY was in charge of a myriad of programs that boys and girls participated in such as football, cheerleading, baseball, softball, soccer, basketball, karate, golf and more. Today, to help ensure that no child is turned away due to financial concerns, CFY encourages youth sports in the community by offering scholarship opportunities, grants and matching funds to youth programs and participants in need. CFY’s mission has never wavered nor has their philosophy, “building character through sports.” CFY believes today as it did over 35 years ago that there is no better investment than an investment in our youth, the leaders of tomorrow. CFY’s Annual Sports Celebrity Banquet has been graced by many well-known local and national celebrities, including Joe DiMaggio, Mike Alstott and Tom Lasorda.
