The Berkley High School Fishing Club Challenge is an interactive fishing program for high school students in the US and Canada.  The Challenge encourages students to learn fishing skills and techniques, environmental stewardship and conservation. We hope that your club will participate in all the fun monthly challenges while completing the required team and individual tasks that will put you in the winner’s circle for 2015.


Program Time Period:   June 2014 to April 2015;  (This allows your team to spend the summer on the water honing their skills, competing in tournaments, and later in the year be recognizes for their successes.)

The Report Card:  This is the list of required tasks your team will be asked to complete during the program year.  All the team and/or individual tasks are simple things all fishing club members should be doing to improve their personal, professional and angler skills.  Each task will earn your team points toward winning the Challenge.  Your final report is due for submission on April 15th.  It’s a good idea to work on these projects throughout the year.

Monthly Challenges:  These are the fun “I dare you” games we play every month.  These earn you extra points BUT this is how EVERY TEAM can win prizes throughout the year.  Each month a new challenge will be posted with the instructions, timeline and the prizes for that month.

The Prizes:  At the end of the term, the team that earns the most combined points from the REPORT CARD tasks and the MONTHLY CHALLENGES will take the grand prize of $4000 in product and an awards ceremony at their school that includes fishing celebrities at the presentation of the Berkley trophy.  Second prize is $1500 in product and custom hats;  third place is $500 in product, custom hats and assorted Berkley baits and Honorable Mention receives custom hats and $300 in assorted Berkley baits and line.
