On behalf of the entire Board of Directors for the Texas High School Bass Association (THSBA), I would like to take this time to welcome all returning and new student anglers, boat captains, team advisors and parents to the 2018-2019 THSBA season, one that I am sure will be the best yet!!

We are very excited and extremely grateful that you have decided to become part of the THSBA family.  And that is exactly what we are, one big family.  Regardless of the school, crowds cheer when a big stringer or big bass comes across the scales, students from opposing schools become friends where they would not have met otherwise, team advisors and parents from opposing schools visit before and after events, folks help each other with their canopy tents, etc…it’s like no other high school sport out there!

Over the past 5 seasons, the THSBA has experienced extraordinary growth.  Our first season back in 2013-2014, the THSBA ended with one (1) division and 124 teams.  And just last season, the THSBA operated six (6) divisions and had over 1,300 teams.  With two (2) more divisions being added for the 2018-2019 season, I can’t help but be amazed at the continued growth of the THSBA.  That growth can be attributed to many things, but if we did not have the wonderful sponsors that help back our association, things would be very different.  When you get the opportunity, please support those companies that support the THSBA.  The 2018-2019 sponsors are:

Skeeter Boats, Yamaha Outboards, Lew’s, Strike King, Academy Sports & Outdoors, Costa Sunglasses, Moritz Chevrolet, American State Bank, Engel Coolers, Fun N Sun Boat Sales, Nautical Mile Marine, LMC Marine, Cowboy Toyota, Eagle Steel Buildings, Power-Pole Shallow Water Anchors, Valley Fashions, Tyler Wrap Company and Pro Rule.

Here is hoping that the upcoming season brings all the teams involved much success on the water and in the classroom.  Let’s all make the 2018-2019 THSBA season one to remember!

Welcome to the THSBA!

President, Texas High School Bass Association

It is the goal of the Texas High School Bass Association to provide a venue where high school students have the opportunity to compete in organized tournaments while establishing strict guide lines and academic standards that will allow our student anglers to excel in the class room and on the lake.
