Jr. Anglers

NGJWC-2013One of the oldest and most productive programs that The Bass Federation has ever had is the TBF Junior Angler Program.

In this program young anglers from 11-18 are members of an active junior fishing clubs that are sponsored by TBF adult Bass Clubs.  If you are interested in starting your own club, you only need 6 members to do so. Contact the State Youth Director, for more information.

These junior anglers fish in club and state tournaments and participate in fundraising and conservation projects just like the adults do.

The competitive branch of this program allows the anglers to qualify for their states Junior State Championship and eventually qualify for the National Guard Junior World Championship.

Reel Kids

The Bass Federation and its member states have implemented a casting skills accuracy challenge for young anglers across the country!

“The Reel Kids Program” is in many cases the first opportunity that many kids have to be introduced to the great sport of fishing. At events like sport and outdoor shows across the country and in many schools these programs are giving kids the chance to experience what it is really like to handle a fishing rod and reel. They test their skills in the art of Casting, Flipping, and Pitching a plastic jig to a very colorful target.

This program is organized and operated at the state level only. By a vote of the Federation Presidents each state decides at what level they wish to advance the program. Many states advance kids from individual events to a State Championship while others choose only to run the event at the local level and put more emphasis on just getting as many kids as possible involved!

Regardless of what level each state chooses, this program consistently achieves its goal of exposing kids from 8 to 15 years of age to the great sport of fishing!!

If you’re interested in bringing one of these events to your area please contact the Kentucky Bass Federation President or Youth Director.

Student Angler Federation (SAF) – High School Fishing Program

This program utilizes a high action DVD with some outstanding underwater footage to get students excited about fishing. Educators like this program because it highlights how the basic elements of education, math, science and language arts, are used by anglers out on the water every day. We also show some of the ever increasing career opportunities being created through the sport of fishing.

The great thing about this portion of the program is that it is absolutely free to any school or youth group that wants to participate.

Our end result is that we want to encourage students to form a school fishing club so they can experience this sport first hand.

For more information,  visit HighSchoolFishing.org

Association of Collegiate Anglers (ACA)

ACA-NBC-SportsIt just takes 6 members of your college student body to form a club and fish at the collegiate level! There are hundreds of clubs across the country already. Contact us to see if you can join one, or start one! Visit the ACA tournament series site.
