In 1984, Sommer Sports president and founder, Fred Sommer, organized his first triathlon in the sleepy Central Florida Community of Clermont.  Later that same year he founded Central Florida Triathletes which quickly grew into a vibrant triathlon club with more than 300 members.  A few years later Central Florida Triathletes evovled into CFT Sports to handle the increasing number events the club was involved in.  CFT Sports later became CFT Sommer Sports as the company expanded nationally.  With a large percentage of the company's business taking place outside of Central Florida, the CFT was later dropped for the name.  Now Sommer Sports is one of the most respected names in the event industry and is actively involved in more than 40 events annually.
