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.

Academy Curriculum

Lymm Angling Club offer a four-session, intensive “Introduction to Angling” course. This guide outlines the areas of coaching that will be provided and the learning objectives for those who attend. Catering for ages 8-16 years

All sessions are two hours in length. The coaching is fairly intensive and to assist with this goal there will be no more than 1 coach to 4 anglers.
