How To Join

There is 2 ways you can join. One is to join a local club in your area. Another is to create your own club at your school or in your community. It cost $30 a year to be a member. Membership is divided in 3. $10 goes to B.A.S.S. for a youth membership which includes a magazine subscription to B.A.S.S. Times. 10$ goes to B.A.S.S. Nation to help with the cost of the High School and Junior National Championship. Last but not least $10 goes to us at state level which is now included in your tournament fees in registration. We are your local Kansas Bass Nation that puts on your events in and around the State. Once you are a member all you have to do is join our events. Teams consist of 2 anglers and a boat captain. The boat captain does not get to compete.  If you're interested in joining please text 913-562-4660 or email Travis Burch KansasYouthBass@gmail.com and we can get you onto the 1st step of registering with an existing or creating a new club.
