Tournament Format and Entry

The entry fee for the American Couples Series one-day events is $100 per team. Registration is hassle-free, as teams can sign up onsite on the morning of the event prior to the safety briefing. The series’ format is especially appealing to those who prefer close-to-home events, eliminating the need for overnight stays or extensive travel.

Each team must compete in at least five one-day events to qualify for national standings, with the best scores determining their rank. The season’s top teams will be invited to the annual championship held each fall, where they can compete for significant prizes and recognition.

In the American Couples Series, anglers pair up for a team effort. Most teams consist of a husband and a wife, but that’s not a rule. Teams can consist of a boyfriend and girlfriend combination, a father and daughter duo, or any combination of one male and one female.

The teams compete in several regional or state divisions throughout the year. Once a pair forms a team, however, the two must fish together as a team throughout the season to be eligible to accumulate points and qualify for the annual national championship.

The top teams are invited to compete in the championship each fall.
