The Collins Inc. – Youth Educational Series (YES) is a dedicated youth division designed for anglers ages 18 and under. YES events utilize a format in which a team consists of two youth anglers and one adult boat captain. All YES events are held in conjunction with the Collins Inc. – Bass For Cash Series adult tournament events so that these young anglers can visit the same bodies of water, be exposed to the same weather conditions, socialize, and network with their adult angling counterparts. The intent of this series is to allow our younger generation of outdoor enthusiasts an opportunity to learn valuable skills and knowledge from their adult boat captains while introducing the youth anglers to the sport of competitive bass angling.
With the popularity of high school clubs being formed across the nation, the YES events will give young anglers a chance to experience the atmosphere surrounding such high school programs and allow these young anglers to either join a local club or create a club of their own at their school.
There are no membership dues required among the Collins Inc. – Youth Educational Series and no entry fees to compete in any of the events.
Prizes at each event will consist of trophy awards for the top two teams and the individual catching the single largest fish of the event. Additional prizes, such as gift certificates and merchandise, will be provided as well. First and second place awards are guaranteed at each event with additional awards provided based on the number of teams competing.
In addition to the single event awards, YES teams will earn points at each event based on their finish. At the conclusion of the season, additional awards will be provided and the top team will be crowned as the Collins Inc. –Youth Educational Series Anglers of The Year. Knowing that it may be impossible for YES anglers to attend every event, teams may drop their lowest two scores when determining year end awards.

A $25 yearly membership provides each angler with access to online learning tools that will offer activities for the individuals to enjoy while off the water. Furthermore, the membership will allow these young anglers opportunities to attend additional state and national level tournament events. College scholarships are among the prizes awarded at the national level events. Therefore, the additional membership offers the potential for some great educational capabilities.
