HOW TO START A B.A.S.S. HIGH SCHOOL CLUB
B.A.S.S. High School Nation clubs foster leadership, problem solving and public speaking skills, promote environmental awareness and responsibility, as well as teach kids the fun of fishing. If your club is ready to contribute to the future of our sport, follow these easy steps to start your own B.A.S.S. High School club.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1. A desire and commitment to encourage youth fishing
2. A minimum of two (2) interested students grades 9-12, and a club advisor.
Once your club makes the decision to form a B.A.S.S. High School Nation club, you should begin recruiting members. Once established, the B.A.S.S. High School club needs to begin holding regular meetings and activities. Advisor duties will include supervising the meetings and functions of the club, helping the students hold elections for their officers, planning club meetings and programs and, of course, helping the students learn about the great sport of fishing.
When planning the programs for the club, keep in mind that the programs should be fun, interesting and interactive. Programs that are dull, unorganized or too long will lose the students attention. Ask for the students input when deciding on the agenda and activities; remember, it is their club. Listed below are some suggestions to help with the planning.
