Do you think that would help with safety concerns for youth kayak bass fishing teams safety concerns?

No, if they wear a PFD then they should be fine

I have recently had grandchildren out in kayaks. A 10,9,8 and three 6 year olds and in several different kayaks. None of them came even close to tipping. An outrigger would be totally superfluous.
And we do not need any more stinking government regulations.

Turtleing is fun and should b practiced with any yaker especially the young. I agree with the others. Kids need to wear Life vest. It saved my life and will help save theirs. People can only tread water so long ;-)

PFDs and a little adult supervision go a long way.

Most kayaker drownings are adults who disregarded their own safety and caused their families undue grief by choosing to not wear a PFD.
Kids need to be supervised but we as adults and good parents need to be a positive example.

I think its important children learn how to properly kayak. The idea of teaching them with outriggers sounds bad. They will only learn to depend on them to stay up. My son has been in canoes and kayaks since before he could walk. Now he paddles his own kayak, no outriggers but always a pfd. He jumps out and back in all the time. To him he is playing to me he is learning.

Agree; PFD, whistle, flag, and lights

Outriggers can be a hazard in certain situations
hook into a big fish and the fishing line/outrigger problems
anchor line tangles in outrigger and anchor retrieval difficulties with outriggers
stumps just below the surface
one more thing to hit your head on

No outrigger.
