As a participant in the Shimano Varsity program, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with Shimano Experience Team (S.E.T.) members, Shimano corporate staff, our sponsored pro anglers and other fishing industry professionals at various tournaments and special events. 

For those of you who attended B.A.S.S. high school/college and select Elite and Open tournaments in 2016, hopefully you are familiar with the Shimano’s on-site ‘activation’ efforts. We offer you a chance to talk tackle and techniques with our experts, and try out the latest gear from all the Shimano brands.

At select events (see schedule here link), Shimano will host ‘Career Night Seminars’ providing the opportunity to for you to hear and learn about various job opportunities within the fishing industry, helpful skill sets and valuable education paths needed, and advice from those in the know. While you may dream about competing at the highest level in tournament bass fishing, it’s always good to have options!
