Chad thanks, this is exactly what we are looking for. Normally teams will come with a boat and boater as their coach, a team.  Usually involved with the school or a club close to the school. With this being our first year it would be great if we could have a count of boaters who would be interested and commite to being boaters for the day. Hold overs from the qualifier would be great. They may not be needed but just to let them know we had a given number of boaters may get a few more high school teams to the tournament. (get the details on being a boater/coach) highschoolfishing.org. any questions give me a call. Thanks

BJ we don't know how many will have teams at this point, they all register through the national office and they will let us know prior to the event, This being our first year we want to get the word out. There are a number of youth who compete now who are high school age or belong to a club already. We hope they will get others interested and start a team and come to the event. It's another opportunity for scholarship funds towards college. Spread the word, go to the sites and get all the details,teams need boaters. Any questions give me a call.

If I fish the qualifiers as a boater, I will be glad to help out since this event is the day after the Tri Cities qualifier. I would encourage all boaters to stick around an extra day, and do the same!

How many High school bass teams are there in Washington?  Are they recognized by their respective schools?

Thanks Jordan for the post, Chad we are looking for boaters to be part of a team, coach, mentor. This is a different team tournament formant, unlike our youth were you just drive, you will be part of the team to give advice, suggestions and coach. If you are interested just give me a call I would be glad to explain it all. Thanks Dave.
