How to ensure your team has all memberships compliant for TN BASS Nation High School and Juniors
- The student joins Bassmaster. The student or parent goes online and joins or renews their subscription to Bassmaster magazine. This costs $10 per year or there are multi-year options.

- The team coach or administrator joins the team to Bass Nation. The coach logs in to their account and enters all members at once on the form and submits to BASS and pays $10 per student to BASS. This can be paid via check to Birmingham or much easier by paying with a credit or debit card. Join Bass Nation here – https://ssl.palmcoastd.com/pcd/rms/index.cfm?action=login&cookieCheck=true

For junior teams only step 2 and 3 are required. Juniors are not required to have a subscription to Bassmaster but it is highly encouraged.
ALL DUES MUST BE PAID IN ORDER TO FISH TOURNAMENTS!! The national Bass Nation dues is how each student becomes insured. The state dues is for some state administrative costs like the web site, printing and travel. Any excess state dues is spent on the kids. 100% of the state dues for juniors will be used for prizes at the state championship.
National and state dues covers students for the school year.
