High School Bass Fishing Teams are being started all across the United States advancing the sport of bass fishing all the way to a high school national championship.  The teams compete for their share of available scholarship money made available by the FLW Student Bass Angler Federation, which sanctions the high school teams.

In our area, there are several high schools that already have teams.  These include Rhea County, Grundy County, Silverdale Baptist Academy, East Hamilton, Central, Soddy Daisy, Chattanooga Christian, and Campbell County.
