Grants Available For Phys Ed Fishing Programs

(Nov. 14, 2004 - Alexandria, VA)... The Future Fisherman Foundation has $200,000 available to physical education teachers throughout the United States who incorporate fishing and boating education into their curricula, offering up to $5,000 grants to help foster active leisure lifestyles and ethical attitudes about the outdoors.

Grant monies can be used for fishing and boating equipment, field trips, curriculum materials, and other resources to assist instructors in carrying out fishing and boating education. In 2004, the National Fishing and Boating Education Grants Initiative supported 43 schools in 22 states with $200,000 in grants. The program was developed through a partnership between the Future Fisherman Foundation, Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation, American Association for Leisure and Recreation, and National Association for Sport and Physical Education.

"The program is very successful in engaging children all across the country to fishing and boating," said Anne Glick, executive director of the Future Fisherman Foundation. "Some teachers have been waiting years for an opportunity like this to come along. We’re fortunate to have this partnership to keep spreading fishing and boating through schools."
