Do you have kids that love to fish?

Sign them up to fish in an American Angler League fishing season!  Currently, we are looking for volunteers to help start up and run youth fishing leagues across the country. Right now, we have leagues up an running in Minnesota and are looking to add more! Check out the 2016 Minnesota Fishing league by clicking here or using the links above.  To find or start a league in another state keep reading!

Our goal is to provide "fishing" as one of the many options of activities that they can participate in with their friends year after year.  Just like any other successful youth sports model, it is going to take a team of volunteers to help make it happen.  

As a lead volunteer, you would be responsible for organizing a structured youth fishing season in your community.  AAL will provide you with as much support as possible so you can focus on recruiting families to participate and to making sure the season is run smoothly!

You will:

1.  Set season dates and pick locations for the fishing league to meet

2. Recruit and help find families who would like to participate by focusing on experienced boaters or anglers that you already know

3. Distribute information about your season and league to participants

4.  Show up and fish during your season and collect scores

5. Update your AAL team site with the scores from your league.

 If this sounds good so far, please fill out the Application and Background check by clicking here!  We will be in contact after those two steps have been completed!  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us: or 612-819-8500
