The University of West Alabama has multiple opportunities for students to get involved around campus through the Greek system, honor societies, organizations and clubs.
UWA Tiger Bass Club is one of the newest opportunities on campus. As the name states, the club is a campus tournament fishing team. Members can expect to participate in bass fishing tournaments in the southeastern states year around.
Since the start of The UWA Tiger Bass Club in 2013, the roster has continued to grow. The club started with six and now has 15 active members.
The Bass Club has gained major bragging rights over the last three years, winning first place at the Bassmaster College Classic, a few first and second place finishes at the Fishlife College Series events and third overall in the Fishlife College Series. The club also made an appearance in the Bassmaster College National Championship.
The anglers have a full year of events planned for the 2015- 2016 school year. In the fall semester, they are registered for six practice tournaments and a few competition tournaments. One of the main events on the schedule is the Alabama Bass Trail Championship. Spring semester will start early for the anglers with a tournament in January.
The rest of the semester will have a range from 10 to 15 tournaments. In the summer, teams will compete in three events.
In order to join The UWA Tiger Bass Club, students must be full time and have a minimum GPA of 2.25. The club has a once a year fee to join of $135.
