CastingKids — BASS is dedicated to America's youth and to the future of bass fishing and its resources. And since kids are the future of this great sport, BASS developed the Bassmaster CastingKids program in 1991 and eventually joined hands with great sponsors to make it the most successful youth fishing program in the world.
Open to young people in two age groups, 7-10 and 11-14, the goals of this competition are to involve America's youth in fishing and to foster in each participant an appreciation and concern for our outdoors. Bassmaster CastingKids competitions are similar to the old NFL punt, pass, and kick events, except the challenge is to flip, pitch and cast a hookless lure to a bullseye target. These are three very important skills everyone needs to know in order to catch fish. Scoring is based on a points system so the young angler with the most points wins!
In only 13 years of existence, the Bassmaster CastingKids program has reached over 1.5 million children and given away more than $2.9 million in cash, prizes and scholarships. Through the CastingKids program, BASS is able to uphold its commitment and dedication to youth and the future of bass fishing and its resources. BASS is proud of the success of this program, and we know that you, too, will find it to be rewarding. So look for a local Bassmaster CastingKids competition today and enjoy the excitement of a fun event designed to teach various casting techniques.
