School Programs

‘kids4reel’ has actively partnered with local Elementary and Middle Schools that offer fishing programs.

As an example, we support four Flagler Country Elementary schools and one Middle school with seed funds, some equipment such as rods/reels, bait provided by our ‘Fishbites’ sponsor and continuous coaching from our ‘kids4reel’ team of FSC members at their monthly outings.

In addition to fishing skills and techniques, our local youth learn about marine science, safety, conservation and fishing regulations.

Youth/teen school programs such as these positively Influence social/emotional learning (SEL) skills.

The Flagler Sportfishing Club ‘kids4reel’ team have been paramount to the success of our fishing club program at Bunnell Elementary.  Their financial, equipment and human support provided have allowed hundreds of students to experience the joy of fishing and the outdoors.”

  • ‘kids4reel’ educational program integration into school PE classes
  • Alignment of ‘kids4reel’ youth clinics with local schools
  • Providing ‘kids4reel’ member-donated, good working order, pre-fished rods/reels to participant school programs
  • Expansion beyond elementary/middle school to high schools for financial donations to support youth fishing initiative
