The twelfth annual R.E.E.F. Tournament takes place on Saturday, May 11, 2024. 

Organized by the Ransom Everglades Alumni Association, the REEF Tournament engages the entire RE community to support projects that fulfill the school’s mission to give back. Anglers of all ages are invited to tackle the waters of Biscayne Bay in this friendly fishing competition. Proceeds from REEF continue to benefit the Ransom Everglades Waterfront, which supports RE and community-wide athletic opportunities and is used year-round for classes, competitions and community service. Similar to past years, a portion of the REEF proceeds will benefit our community partner, Breakthrough Miami.

Tournament guidelines will be shared at the Captains' Meeting on May 10, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on the La Brisa Touzet Patio. REEF will officially kick off with the traditional shotgun start at 7:30 a.m. on May 11 and culminate with a weigh-in on campus.
The 11th annual Ransom Everglades Epic Fishing (REEF) tournament in May 2023 attracted dozens of anglers of all ages and abilities and raised $25,000 to support the RE waterfront with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Breakthrough Miami. This year’s overall champion was Tyler Grossfeld '27 and Team Gigi. The participants who fished on nearly 20 vessels in the morning enjoyed a fish taco feast on campus after. The tournament incorporates relationships with community partners to raise awareness of how RE can help others. Community partners included Miami Waterkeeper, Debris Free Oceans, Monica Burguera Foundation (boating safety), RE Research Team faculty members, Dr. Kristine Stump and Heather Marshall, Breakthrough Miami and Compost for Life.
