Student Angler Tournament Trail and Classic Bass Volunteer Opportunity
The Student Angler Tournament Trail is the exclusive Boat Marshal partner with Classic Bass, and is proud to provide this awesome opportunity for Adults and Student Anglers. Anglers get to ride along as Boat Officials with top local professional bass anglers as they compete in the Classic Bass Tournament of Champions Trail. What an experience!
You are the Official/Judge in the boat! You will insure anglers follow rules, assess time penalties, weigh fish, record catches, and update your angler on tournament results as they are posted. This is a “Every Fish Counts" style of event. If you have never seen a fishing contest like this we suggest you watch one of the MLF or Classic Bass videos.
Please submit and sign up below. All Marshals must be 13 years of age or older on the day of the event. We are looking for Adults and Students, if parents are providing transportation and would like to also be a Boat Marshal we welcome them as well. When you sign up you are confirming you will be at the stated tournament location and on time for this event. These positions are a crucial component for this style of tournament. Please be responsible and plan accordingly so we are able to fulfill our commitment. If there are issues attending the event, please notify the contacts below ASAP.
