Welcome to the Oklahoma Bass Nation High School Trail.  Our team trail consists of five tournaments in which teams will be awarded points based on their finish in each tournament. After five tournaments we will take each teams best four scores from the five tournaments and the top team will advance to the Bass Nation High School National Championship in the summer.

Our team trail is open to any high school teams that are registered with the Oklahoma Bass Nation and BASS. For more details please contact Youth/High School Director Richard Minyard at nokcrichard@aol.com

Every boater captain must show completion of a boater safety course in order to be a boater captain at this tournament.   You must complete the course prior to the tournament that you want to be a boat captain. You must provide documentation at tournament registration, that you have successfully completed the course

2021 season is almost upon us!  We need everyone to get their online rosters updated and new people added to your roster. It will be another  year with a lot of fun things to come.

Richard Minyard is the Youth/HS Director for the OBN. Nothing should change as far as how things have been running. We are very excited about the new year and look forward to seeing everyone in 2020.
