Angler's Press Outdoors - Youth League
A Youth League! - for grade and high schoolers!
The Angler’s Press Outdoors Youth League – presented by Gone Fishin’ Marine, is designed to provide opportunities for youth that may have never experienced the fun of angling, and present alternatives to the electronic games and media platforms that sometimes detract our kids from seeking basic outdoor fun. It is open to all youth, from grade school thru high-school, and there are NO ENTRY OR MEMBERSHIP FEES required to participate!
At each event CASH will be awarded to this division, along with "performance" bonus awards. At the end of the season, the top ten Youth League anglers will be invited to the FPT Classic Championship, where they will compete – with no entry fee, for their own separate trophies, and GRAND PRIZE!
HOW TO REGISTER YOUR YOUTH:
Bring your youth to the event, and register them as a “Youth League” angler, and they will receive a special Youth League wristband.
If a parent or observer is required or necessary to drive the boat for the Youth League angler, the observer is allowed to fish, and if desired, participate in the regular FPT event, but they are not allowed to assist the Youth League anglers in any way (landing or netting fish), nor will their fish be included in that Youth League anglers limit. Please note that this is done on the "honor" system, and for the sake of "teaching" and "growth", we want these youth anglers to do their own work.
At each event cash* and trophies will be awarded to the top 3 anglers in the amount of:
- $100 - 1st Place
- $75 - 2nd Place
- $50 - 3rd Place
(*Based on 10 participating youth - If less than 10, payout will be less and adjusted accordingly)
In addition, "Performance bonuses will be awarded for the winning angler as follows:
- Limit over 10 pounds: New Daiwa Tatula Rod or Reel
- Big fish over 3 pounds: River2Sea/Gamakatsu baits/hooks
(Note: Youth anglers can only win "performance bonus" prizes one time. FPT reserves the right to subsitute performance bonus prizes as necessary)
The top ten anglers will be invited to the FPT Classic Championship and will fish only on the final day for their own GRAND prize and Youth League trophy!
