Junior clubs are sponsored by adult Federation Nation Clubs with members of the adult clubs acting as mentors and educators for these young anglers. Junior members gain skills from how-to clinics, educational workshops based on conservation, good fishing ethics, catch-and-release and habitat restoration. Junior members also get involved with other youth tournaments, adopt-a-waterway projects, charitable programs and community service projects.
