Welcome! And thank you for your interest in The Bass Federation’s Student Angler Federation School club program.
To get started in this program there are three simple steps;
Step 1- Introduce The Program –It starts with an introduction video you can show in a classroom or a general student body assembly. We find that asking a few simple questions before viewing the program video will engage the students in the program. The video can be seen on our videos page or the Bass Federation Youtube Channel here.
First we like to ask how many students have been fishing before. Second, we ask those students who haven’t been fishing if they would like to go. Lastly, we ask everyone if they would like to be able to get a day off from school to go fishing! Then play the video! The video will show students how fun and interesting the outdoors can be as well as the opportunities created by putting their education to use. You will also receive a sample copy of our classroom workbook, which is designed to show students the true importance of their education in a fun and exciting way. Throughout the program we break down the basic elements of their education and show them how those basic educational tools, Math, Science and Language Arts, are necessary in everything they do in life, and how they are used by anglers out on the water every day. We also show some of the career opportunities today in outdoors\fishing.
Step 2 – After Action Report – After you have shown the video to the student body, we hope there is an interest in starting a Student Anglers Federation fishing club in your school. The students who wish to join can get started learning, putting their educational tools to use, entering the High School Fishing State Championships and World Finals, possibly earning scholarship money and having some clean family fun! Any age or grade level can join a Student Angler club and fish the local events, however, only those who have graduated the eighth grade and who have not yet started their first semester of post high school education are eligible to enter the High School Fishing World Finals.
When you submit this application you will receive (at no cost to your school*) - A sample copy of our classroom club workbook, a flyer on how to start a TBF Student Angler Federation club in your school, as well as, the benefits that go with forming a SAF club at your school, information on our awesome school club fundraiser.
