The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has changed the name of its High School Fishing Program to the School Fishing Club Program. The program has grown in popularity in recent years and continues to support and encourage youth anglers of ALL ages. The new name more accurately portrays the age range for student participation.
In Osceola County, the Osceola Anglers High School Fishing Club is a Non-Profit 501c3 organization that was formed in 2014 to create an opportunity for high school students in Osceola County, Florida to participate in the sport of Bass Fishing. The purpose of the Osceola Anglers High School Fishing Club is to provide a competitive tournament-style fishing experience.
Their goal is to create and help flourish the interest of Sportsmanship, Leadership and Character Building in today’s youth. Osceola Anglers is open to all eligible high school students residing in Osceola County, FL. The Angler must be in 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade with a grade point average of 2.0. Meetings will be held on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, (exception of Holidays, or weather, date subject to change).

In 2021, the FWC’s School Fishing Club Program (formerly known as the High School Fishing Program) welcomed 24 new and 13 returning student angling clubs from Florida, offering funding for clubs committed to complete the provided FWC curriculum, as well as pre- and post-tests, and at least one conservation project. Club sponsors worked to provide support and hands-on training in knot-tying and fishing gear assembly and assisted with the clubs’ local events to increase confidence in the sport of fishing for student anglers.
Information about the 2022-2023 School Fishing Club Program will be announced in the summer of 2022. For more information about the School Fishing Club Program, visit MyFWC.com/SFC.
