NZSFC Youth Nationals 2024

NZ Youth Nationals 2024 – dates 13th to 27th of April 2024.

Looking for an exciting activity these school holidays? The NZSFC Youth Nationals 2024 are just around the corner! This nationwide tournament, designed for junior anglers, runs from April 13th to April 27th, 2024, coinciding with the April school holidays.

The tournament is a fantastic opportunity for kids under 18 to experience the thrill of fishing. With a structure similar to that of ‘The Nationals’, the event includes an all-tackle, measure-and-release format, and a points-based scoring system that encourages anglers to fish lighter line classes. Thanks to Daiwa NZ, there are some epic prizes up for grabs for the winning anglers!

Participation is easy—junior anglers can register at their nearest fishing club, and they don’t need to be a member. The tournament offers a wide variety of fishing sections catering to kids with handlines all the way up to those with access to boats. There’s even a photography section focusing on fun and the marine environment.

One of the best things about fishing is the bonding experience it offers for parents and children. Many parents have shared that fishing with their kids is a great way to bond and share the sport together. It’s not just about the competition; it’s about creating lasting memories and strengthening relationships.

So, if you’re looking for an exciting and meaningful activity these school holidays, consider participating in the NZSFC Youth Nationals 2024. Get your kids out on the water, enjoy the thrill of fishing, and create unforgettable memories together. See you there!
