Welcome to the blog for Lymm Angling Club's Junior Section. Here you will find out what is going on in the Junior section.

Under the Junior section we offer two services. Firstly operating under Lymm Angling Club's Academy we offer free places to an 'Introduction to Angling' course. A four-week intensive training course designed to teach the basics to those have never or rarely been fishing. After completing the course you will be able to fish to with very little assistance/supervision. Our Academy is based at Woodside Pool, Dutton.

And secondly, leading on from this we offer a competitive element to our junior section for those with more experience. There is a less intensive coaching experience under match conditions. We intend to gather junior and advance to a level to do well at National and Regional Competitions against the best young talent in angling.

Junior Section started

In January 2009 Phil Hatton and I made enquiries about creating a junior section within Lymm Angling Club my childhood club. Since 2005 the section withered out when the previous coach was unable to continue.

In November, after consideration from committee a decision was taken to re-launch the junior section and I was brought onto the committee to oversee this task, working with Phil Hatton together we began.

After a discussion with the EA it was clear it was no easy task. The committee had made it clear that things need to be right, no half-measures used.

This meant getting fully-qualified coaches in the club, being 100% legal and insured.

And so the task begins. In this blog I will go through some of the challenges, highlights and general day to day stuff I face along the way. I hope you enjoy this and find it somewhat informative.
