We encourage proper sportsmanship, integrity, and conservation.  AHSBA strives to develop the skills and knowledge needed to be a competitive bass angler. The league promotes positive contributions to the environment and to the community while providing opportunities for character development and academic accountability. It is the goal of the AHSBA to produce contributing members of society while increasing opportunities to engage in quality outdoor recreation and to pursue post-secondary education via our scholarship program.

FAQ

Helpful Information

I don't have a boat. Can I still sign up?

Our goal at AHSBA is to never have to turn an angler away for any reason.  We will do everything in our power to pair new members with captains who only have one angler, but unfortunately, we do not often have openings for anglers who cannot provide their own equipment and/or do not have a captain.  What we CAN do is connect you with a local school representative who can advise you on any potential openings within their team.  Email us for more information on who to contact if you are looking for a team!

Can anyone sign up?

AHSBA is open to anglers in grades 6-12 who are enrolled in a Georgia public or private school, an accredited virtual school recognized by the Georgia Department of Education, or who have registered with the state as a homeschooler by filing a Declaration of Intent to Homeschool.  Anglers are expected to represent AHSBA in a positive manner with both academic standing and discipline record.

How do I sign up, and how much is it?

Go to the Registration tab on the home page and find the 2021-2022 Season Registration link.  You must have access to both a boat and a captain to register!  Registration fees vary by team depending on local sponsorships and selected memberships.  Some teams only register and fish SAF (Student Angler Federation) trails while others may choose to register for additional trails.  Contact the team representative for more information.

Are you affiliated with GHSA or any local schools?

AHSBA is not affiliated with GHSA, nor are we tied directly to any school or school system.  Think of it like your local 4-H Club - most schools fully support their anglers and are thrilled to show some love on social media, morning announcements, or even in yearbooks when anglers win tournaments.  Much like travel ball, you can still fish with AHSBA if your school does have a GHSA sanctioned team.  You can even choose to fish with both your school team and the AHSBA!
