High School Bass Club

Recommended Posts

I am considering starting a bass club at my Prep-School.

We are looking for input on the do,s and dont’s.

It will be a Fall club  that will run from September through November.

Most of the kids will have their own equipment, but are their companies that give discounts for non-profit educational facilities?

 

I have reached out to the state to try to obtain a group license.

 

i suspect that the gear the school purchases will largely be spinning  in nature with a one casting gear thrown in.

 

On a side note, do round reels last longer last longer than similarly priced low profile reels, given both are properly maintained.?

 

Any input is appreciated 

 

Al

It would be an absolute honor to help anyway you think I could  Central NH is just an hour or so up the street (Concord area) from me so just give a holler...the big brown RAM is always up for a road trip.

I just placed the Invoice paper work to the building principal today to start a bass club in my high school. I am from northern NJ and went through the TBF and started a Student Angler Federated fishing club. NHBull, I would suggest you go to the site that LadiMopar suggests: http://fishinginschools.org

 

You will find a "Join Now" menu. Make sure to print and read all of the directions they provide. I just placed 10 student anglers in their system yesterday. It costs $25 per student. My school is willing to pay for all of them. TBF provides insurance as well. However, your boat insurance is the primary insurance that will be used while students are on your boat. 

 

Good luck

I work with a high school fishing team in Alabama. Unfortunately, we receive no monetary help from the school system. However, there are several local businesses that have graciously donated money to our team. We put their names or logos on our jerseys, and their support helps pay for travel expenses, tournament fees, association dues, etc.
