          The junior format has changed this year to a team event with a boat captain, similar to the high school format. Also the age limits  has changed, competitors must not turn 16 before August 31 the year of the of competition,  but no lower age limit anymore.

            Open to all youth 15 years and under, with a team member and boat captain with their own boat. This will open it up for families to be involved.

New rules will be out and posted on this web site in March this year. We will only have a single tournament for the youth this year.  May 19, at Moses Lake, will be our Junior State Championship. Winning team will go to the Junior World Championship on Lake Hamilton, Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Registration: will be Wednesday, August 8th.

Tournament Dates: August 9, 10, 11.

Thursday, Friday, full field competes with their qualified team mate from their own boats with their own boat captain.  The field is cut to the top (1) team from each division for Saturday final championship round.  All teams will participate in the parade across the FLW cup main state in front of thousands of spectators on Saturday.

The top TBF Junior angler “team” from each state federation ears a spot to compete and have a chance to fish for thousands of dollars in scholarships in the division championships finals on Saturday.

This tournament is the TBF Junior World Championship and is always held in conjunction with the prestigious Forrest Wood Cup.

Details, forms needed, and entry forms can be found on the (YOUTH HEADING) of this web site.

Frequently Asked Questions (Youth)

How do I join a TBF junior club?

The key to this is finding a club in your area. You can contact WSBFl Youth Director by clicking here or look up your home states Youth Director through the links provided under contact us on this website.

What if there is no TBF junior club in my area

We can help you find the closest adult club to contact about junior opportunities or, start your own TBF Student Anglers Federation student club through your school. Just contact us and we'll help you get started!

Does TBF provide our TBF junior club with insurance?

Yes. TBF provides, as a membership benefit, the same insurance coverage for a junior clubs and junior members as we do for an adult clubs and adult members. Including $1 Million dollars of general liability cover, $10,000.00 of participant AD&D cover as well as excess medical coverage.  Read the insurance FAQ list for more info by clicking here.

When are the membership dues and club rosters due?

They are due at the same time as the adult clubs. (December 31 of each year) Getting these in on time is very important to us so that we can give you full benefit of your membership.

How much are the TBF junior dues?

Currently the basic TBF youth dues are only $5.00. The individual states may add a small state fee in addition to this amount. Your club will likely have a small club fee as well. TBF also has a youth premium membership for $25.00 that includes all the TBF benefits PLUS a 1 year membership to FLW Outdoors and the magazine as well as a gift pack full of goodies to help you catch more fish!

What is the TBF Student Anglers Federation in school national education program?

This is an educational program designed to introduce students to fishing and to show students the ever increasing career and educational opportunities through fishing. It also shows students how the basic elements of their education are used by tournament anglers every day out on the water and how you can use fishing and having fun to sharpen those basic skills that will help you later in life no matter what your career choice.

How can I get the TBF Student Anglers Federation program in my school

This relatively new program is designed to get students in schools across the country excited about fishing through our classroom DVD. In this program we encourage students in the Jr. High and High School age groups to get involved by forming school fishing clubs. Our program also adds purpose to their education by giving them real life examples how education items like math, science, and language arts are used by anglers out on the water every day. Combine that with a discussion on the ever increasing career opportunities that are being created by the sport and it gives students another great option for their after school time.  Contact us by clicking here for more information.
