The SFCA is committed to helping clubs to develop and grow as they, from the smallest match group to the biggest association, are the backbone of angling and have a vital role to play within the local community.
Our aim is to work with clubs and support them in setting up and running junior sections. This will help to ensure the future growth and survival of the club and at the same time provide them with the advice and resources to ensure that juniors are introduced to the sport in a safe, sustainable environment where they can get the help and encouragement they need and learn about their environmental, social and legal responsibilities as anglers.
The vital role that clubs will play in growing our sport has not previously been focused on or adequately resourced.
The SFCA will actively seek to promote angling clubs to:
- funding bodies
- and, most importantly, to anglers
The SFCA is also seeking to build a range of benefits over the coming months and years that member clubs will be able to take advantage of.

- a vote at the AGM
