Attention SAF Anglers and Coaches! We need Your help!
A couple IMPORTANT Reminders when the time comes to go to an event!
Online Registration is Highly Recommended!
– Registration Closes 12 noon CT on Friday before each event
REMINDER no youth angler can register, enter or fish ANY youth sports event alone. Pursuant to the Youth Safe Sports Act of 2017 (federal law governing youth sports a minor CANNOT participate in a youth sporting event ALONE with an adult.) There MUST be 3 persons in every boat to be compliant with this federal law. No exceptions.
-Rule #2 outlines a $20/per person late fee for onsite registrations, we’ve been pretty lax on this in the past but with the popularity of HS Fishing, registering onsite means longer lines and times – help us, help you and stay on time!
