Palm Coast, FL. Flagler Sportfishing Club Inc., and Flagler Sportfishing Foundation INC. announced the formation of a Junior Angler Program within their Club called ‘kids4reel’. Flagler Sportfishing Club, which already benefits the youth of our community in many ways, is excited to support this new youth angler program.
“Teaching clinics, scholarships, tournaments, and ad hoc school fishing activities have always been a part of the Club,” says FSC President, Captain Adam Morley, “but we wanted to formalize this initiative and create additional interest in educating our youth in the sport of fishing.”
Currently, FSC partners with Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) in the collection of live Redfish in the annual Redfish Rodeo Classic for their Star Tournament. FSC also contributes $5000 each year to award a Scholarship presented by CCA to a local Flagler County Junior Angler.
‘kids4reel’ Program Components:
- Education: Periodic Kids’ Clinics, such as the one held recently on July 30, 2022, at Herschel King Park
- Scholarship: Sponsor youth scholarship opportunities, like the CCA Star Tournament
- Local School Engagement: Support local school fishing programs with our expertise, donations, and equipment
- Community Programs: Develop engagement opportunities with local Girls/Boys Clubs; Scouts and other community organizations
- Junior Angler Program creation within the Club and special Junior Divisions in our tournaments
If you would like to support this great initiative, please follow this link and help us give back to our local youth.
Our Annual Sponsors, such as Big Boys Play Toys, Clymer Funeral Homes, Hammock Bait and Tackle, Boaters Exchange and others greatly support FSC each year.
