In October & November of each year, we offer our current-year customers, a "product-only sponsorship" opportunity.
Over the years, we've found that individuals who are already using our custom, made-to-order products; already know what our products can & can't do for them as individual anglers. With that personal knowledge, they've usually discussed our products with their peers.
And THAT, is just what we're looking for!
In return for representing our Company's products, we offer to fill all our "Pro-Staff" members' ZAP Custom Lure Co. product & accessory needs, for the entire following year's tournament-season.
From the qualified applications we receive, we choose 10 anglers:
2 Professional Tournament-Circuit Anglers (1 each, Bass & Walleye);
2 Semi-Professional Anglers (USCG-licensed Guide or Charter-Captain);
2 Amateur or Club Anglers (1 each, Bass & Walleye);
and 2 Youth Bass-Club Anglers.
We've reduced our Collegiate Tournament-Circuit sponsorship for 2017, to: one, 2-man, Collegiate Bass Team.
Our "Pro-Staff" sponsorship-requirements, are really quite simple:
1. The applicant (or their parent or guardian, in the case of a youth-angler) must be a current-year, direct-purchase customer, of our Company's products.
2. The applicant must be at least 21-years of age, or have their application co-signed by their custodial parent or legal guardian.
3. In order to be considered; the completed application must be submitted on one of OUR "Pro-Staff Application Forms". We cannot accept a resume, or any other alternative format.
4. The applicant must have a 100% verifiable, 3-year tournament-fishing history, at some level of organized fishing-competition ~ as an: amateur, semi-professional or professional angler.
Semi-Professional & Professional-Angler applicants, must have at least 3 years of regional or national tournament-circuit histories; with 1 year of Club or Open-Tournament history (including a minimum of 6 Open or Buddy Tournaments) acceptable.
Amateur applicants, must be registered B.A.S.S. Federation-Nation Club-Anglers, with at least 3-yrs of verifiable club-tournament history
Youth-Angler applicants must be recommended by a current adult customer of our company, AND/OR, through their sponsored Federation-Nation Youth-Club)
