The success of the Beach Buccaneers Youth Club has been built on the hard work and dedication of its volunteers, players and parents. Individuals who make significant contributions to the organization are recognized by being inducted into the Hall of Fame or by receiving one of the special awards named after past players and coaches. Some of the highest honors a player can receive are the Eric Thorn Memorial Award, the Michael Persetic Memorial Award or the Tony Boarman Memorial Award which were named after the former football players who lost their lives.
Over the years, the Beach Buccaneers Youth Club has offered football, cheerleading, poms, lacrosse and basketball to the youth in our community. It's an honor to welcome past players returning as adults to bring their own children to play. Many of the coaches and board members were player themselves. The community is what makes this organization strong. Thank you for your support in making the Beach Buccaneers Youth Club great!
