There are 3 ways to make it the Youth/High School state championship:
- Eastern qualifier: Must finish in the top 5 finishers
- Western qualifier: Must finish in the top 5 finishers
- Central Division: Must finish in the top 15 in points
A high school team can fish any tournament scheduled to qualify for the state championship. Junior teams do not need to qualify for state championship; they are eligible to fish any of the tournaments scheduled for the prizes and experience. There will not be two separate groups at any of the qualifying tournaments.
We are pleased to announce that there is now an assistant youth director in Western Pennsylvania, Phil Coffin. He will be responsible for growing the number of members in Western Pennsylvania. He has already created a high school club that will have around 11 teams at Avonworth High School. We look forward to meeting all the new kids and their families at Conneaut later this year, if not sooner.
