Junior Matches / Teams and Coaching days

Come and join in. We are always looking to add to our teams and offer free coaching support. PAAS juniors are among some of the country’s best young anglers with titles such as, ‘Ladies Fish ‘ O’ Mania’, ‘National Junior Canal Champion’ and a variety of European and World representation – not to forget many high profile sponsorships among them. We are looking for Juniors from age 7 to 17 to join in our quest for the next PAAS junior star. So if you are just starting out, or already hard at it, get in touch and we can help, support, and guide you.

Our matches and coaching days are open to all junior members and non-members to take part in a series of 3 junior matches. Lots of prizes: £25 tackle voucher for 1st; £15 for 2nd; £10 for 3rd; and trophies for the top 3 for each match. So why not come along and have a go? Or just come along for some coaching from our professional coaches.
