The co-ed adult kickball league in Cape Coral, iKickballz, is teaming up with a popular local non-profit to bring awareness and raise money for water quality issues that have plagued Florida's canals, oceans, rivers, lakes and estuaries.

The league is joining forces with Captains for Clean Water, to present "Kickin' for Clean Water," a kickball tournament set for Sunday, Aug. 26, starting at 9 a.m., with all proceeds and donations going to CFCW.

"This is a great way to raise awareness and for us to get involved on a different platform," said Capt. Kayla McGuire of CFCW. "It'll be fun to get out and do something for everyone. Families, kids and all different people can come out and play."

Mutual ties between the founder of iKickballz, Ryan Caviness, and members of the CFCW team have brought this single-elimination tournament to life.

Team registration is $300 with a max of 15 members. Individuals can also take part and be assigned to a squad for $20.

For $30, you will gain entry into the tournament as well as a CFCW membership.

All players will revive shirts and a top prize is still being determined.

"People should come out and play because it shows that they want to help the community with our local water issues, and the more people who attend the greater the awareness is of what is going on!" said Caviness. "This is a great way for area residents to come together, have some fun outdoors and raise money for a much needed cause."

Sponsorship opportunities for the event are ongoing and will be open for registration at the CFCW fundraiser at Millennial Brewing Company in Fort Myers from 5-9 tonight.

A second sponsorship opportunity will be at the Clam Shack on Sanibel, from 2-8 p.m., on Saturday, Aug. 25.

The tournament will be played at the Kelly Road Soccer Complex, located at 10750 Kelly Road in Fort Myers.
