is C.A.S.T. for Kids
C.A.S.T. for Kids is a one day outdoor fishing event
that provides disabled and special needs children an
opportunity to learn to fish. For many of the children,
this is the first opportunity to fish because of
limitations caused by their disability.
C.A.S.T. for Kids is steered toward youth age 6 to 18,
with little or no fishing experience. Parents and
guardians are encouraged to attend the event with their
children in order to provide future opportunities for
their children. Children are matched up with expert
anglers from the BASS Federation and/or other fishing or
service organizations who will take them on boats and
teach them the basics of fishing, safety, and fishing
C.A.S.T. for Kids is not only fun for the participants
but to all those who volunteer their time for the event.
Kids learn to enjoy the outdoors and fishing while
volunteers learn a valuable lesson about living with a
disability and other limitations.

We really need
the boaters across Alabama to step up and register
to take these
fishing for a few hours. Ask any boater from the
previous events how special
this day was, not only for the
kids but for themselves as well, and you'll see why we do what we do.
This event would not be possible if it wasn't for the great
boat captain participation that volunteer each year.
