Our mission is to foster leadership, problem solving, sportsmanship, public speaking skills, promote environmental awareness, personal responsibility and community service through competitive angling and community outreach.
We seek to foster and encourage more of Arizona’s youth to get engaged in their communities, foster urban and natural resources, and less screen time.
