2020 Cruzin Classic

The Cruzin Classic takes place in Fort Lauderdale just prior to the Christmas holiday each season. In addition to the beautiful scenery and warm temperatures, the event offers incredible convenience for participating teams and their fans.

For teams looking to add an extra element of exotic appeal, Trip Sports can arrange an optional cruise to the Bahamas after the games are complete in Fort Lauderdale.
