Armed Services YMCA Combat Fishing Tournament

Founded in 2006, the Combat Fishing Tournament was established to give thanks to the brave young men and women of the United States Armed Services who have served our nation with honor and courage in both the Iraq and Afghanistan theaters of war. In just a few short years the ASCFT has garnered huge success and notoriety and is now considered the largest military appreciation fishing tournament in the United States.

The ASYMCA is very proud of what the Combat Fishing Tournament has achieved over the past eleven years. Here are a few of the highlights:

  • 2,475 currently serving military veterans went deep sea fishing;
  • 277 professional fishing charters;
  • 44 bus charters with State Trooper escort;
  • 663 volunteer charter crew members;
  • Approximately 7,100 dock-side volunteer hours.

The 12th Annual Armed Services Combat Fishing Tournament will be held in Seward, Alaska on May 24th, 2018. Thanks to the generous support of the Seward deep-sea charter fleet, many local charter vessels will be donated to the event, allowing approximately another 200+ deserving service members to participate.
