Lymm Angling Club has a growing and popular junior section. The club provides opportunities for young people between the ages of 8 and 16 to receive coaching and compete in club matches, as well as local, regional and national matches. All our coaches are fully qualified to work with young people. The club has achieved the high standards required to be awarded the Sport England's Clubmark. This is awarded to clubs by the Angling Trust once the club demonstrates that it meets the Angling Trust’s criteria for its playing programme, knowing your club, and its community and club management. Clubmark is an acknowledgement that we take these issues seriously and that we are striving to provide a high quality and welcoming environment for young participants in the sport
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. Each session builds on the knowledge gained from preceding sessions and in so doing provides a constructive learning experience for all young anglers who attend.
Course is £35 and includes a complete beginner kit and a junior membership to Lymm Angling Club.
Drop In Coaching
For anglers who have previously graduated the Academy or those who are not beginners but want to get some tips then we have free drop in sessions where you can bring along your own tackle and get coaching from our qualified angling coaches.
The club has a junior membership fee which is renewed annually, click here for more details. To find out more or to contact the Junior Section Organiser Chris Finneran please visit our Contact Us page.
