It is the goal of the Texas High School Bass Association to provide a venue where high school students have the opportunity to compete in organized tournaments while establishing strict guide lines and academic standards that will allow our student anglers to excel in the class room and on the lake.

Atlanta ISD provides an exceptional education for all students in a safe learning environment that encourages them to become productive citizens no matter their destination after graduation.
