    Student Mission Statement

    "The purpose of the Bass Fishing Club is to build character through team work that improves anglers while having fun."

    Mission Statement - The purpose of the Bass Fishing Club at O’Fallon Township High School is to promote bass fishing within the high school and throughout the community of O’Fallon. The club will have monthly meetings, club outings, and the possibility of making the IHSA state tournament in May, at Carlyle Lake. This club will teach the members more about the sport of bass fishing both recreationally and competitively. Overall, this club is meant for students to enjoy the sport of bass fishing and represent the high school and community of O’Fallon throughout the state of Illinois.

    As we get comfortable and casual with one another in our meetings and field trips, we need to keep in mind these points.
