Junior Academy

Welcome to the launch of the Shrewsbury Town Fisheries Junior Academy.
We are starting with a simple phase to get us up and running and shall add further phases over the coming weeks and months as the Academy grows. The main priciple is to give our junior members, parents or guardians a start into the sport of fishing and provide a basis to learn the basics regardless of your fishing knowledge. We will also be adding some educational sections with the view of protecting our environment and wildlife, junior media content and fishing competitions. We have been busy with a number of volunteers who have resently attended coaching training to obtain the qualification of Angling Coach with the Angling Trust. They will be available during our coaching sessions that can be found in our Events Section. All our coaches will have completed the valid security criteria required.Here you will be able to book a coaching session that is free to attend. All equipment and bait will be provided free of charge also. Our competitions page will contain the relevant information for you to take part when they go live in 2022. Please keep visiting our News page for valuable information to keep you up to date with further additions to the Academy. We shall be working with a number of partners to provide some super content as we grow to make the Academy an exciting prospect for youngsters to enjoy.
