    Great tournament ... GREAT cause !!

    PVA Bass Tour, A B.A.S.S. Sanctioned Event
    OVERVIEW

    Welcome to PVA’s Bass Tour Page. In order to introduce people with disabilities to recreational and competitive sport of bass fishing, the PVA Sports and Recreation Program founded the PVA Bass Tour.

    Currently, the Tour has four tournaments. The success of the Tour has drawn the attention of the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.), who now officially sanctions the Tour events.

    Each tournament consists of an Open/Team Competition for those who wish to fish from a boat and a Bank Competition for those who prefer to fish from shore. Disabled anglers in the Open/Team Competition are paired with able-bodied boat partners and fish as a team on one day. On the next day, only the anglers with disabilities compete. The boat partners serve as coaches and help in finding fishing locations and choosing baits. Although only the anglers with disabilities are fishing on in the Open Competition, the boat partners whose anglers place in the top ten also win. Awards and prizes are given to both anglers and boat partners. Disabled anglers in the Bank Competition are paired with volunteers who assist them in whatever they cannot do themselves while fishing. Prizes are awarded based on the total weight of the ten heaviest fish each day, for two days.

    The Tour has become one of the most popular sporting events that PVA sponsors. We invite you to check out our page and join the fun. On this page, you will find links to the online registration form for the Tour tournaments, Tour results, and a link to our Sports calendar listing other tournaments, dates, and contact information.
