About the #PHXJRB

The Phoenix Jr. Bassmasters is a youth fishing club for kids ages 8 to 8th grade.

We are dedicated to producing 5-6 fun, safe, and educational

fishing tournaments each year.

 

Our mission is to foster leadership, problem solving, sportsmanship, public speaking skills, promote environmental awareness, personal responsibility and community service.

Our club members fish 5-6 competitive tournaments on a variety of Arizona Lakes. Anglers 8 years old up to 8th grade are competing for the title of Angler of the Year, and to become the Arizona representatives to the Wild West Bass Youth Series (WWBYS) West Coast Championship.

The Phoenix Jr. Bassmasters believe that we’re building a positive future

for our youth by teaching them about fishing, fun, respect, and the

great outdoors.
