Welcome to the 2016-2017 edition of Teen Sport Fishing Association
        The goal of TSA is to teach sportsmanship, basic fishing techniques and nurture a love of fishing, ensuring the sport will continue to prosper for generations to come. As a 501c3 non-profit organization, we offer membership to teens who enjoy bass fishing. The complete administration operates on a volunteer basis. The only 4 requirements are: The teens must be in 6th through 12th grades, maintain a GPA of 2.0 or better, participate in at least two club sponsored community service event and must pass the safe boaters course before competing in our tournaments. We are active in Volusia, Seminole, Orange, Lake, Polk and Osceola Counties. We have reached a milestone of 200 teens competing and supporting our program. We are looking to expand to other surrounding counties in the future. We work with many school districts, schools and educators throughout the association. No school district, school board or employee has any responsibility or liability for our program. Captains volunteer their time and boats monthly for the teens to fish for bass and earn points based on bag limits and club participation. All of our captains go through a background change to maintain the integrity of the program. After each tournament there is an award ceremony presenting the top teen trophies and everyone enjoys a cook out. We do require the teens to help compensate the captains; $25.00 for the Captain(s), & $5.00 for the tournament expenses. The teens earn points for participation at meetings and tournament standings through the year. Our schedule includes 6 tournaments followed with a state championship culminating with trophies, prizes and scholarships to some of our deserving seniors. Our classroom sessions are held twice a month and include such topics as first aid, types of tackle, knot tying, types of lures and techniques, equipment usage and tips, safe boating operations and basic trailer maintenance; we also explain sportsmanship and proper etiquette while boating and tournament fishing. T.S.A does several community service events including clean up of local waterways, volunteering with city of Orlando, FWC, Edgewood Children's Ranch. Our largest community service project, the Paralyzed Veteran's of American Bass Tournament held each year in the spring on West Lake Toho in Kissimmee. The main focus of Teen Sport Fishing Association is to help the parents keep the youth of America focused and off the negative side of society.
  Please come to a meeting to hear the details of our program. Open membership enrollment for this year will close October 1, 2016.
 Yours in Service,
Neal Lazarus
