ARLINGTON, Texas – Bowler’s Ed kits, containing curriculum and equipment designed to introduce students to the lifetime sport of bowling, have been awarded to 15 schools and organizations based on submitted applications to International Bowling Campus Youth Development.

The Bowler’s Ed kits provide educators with the tools needed to engage children in a true bowling experience by providing a bowling-center atmosphere inside a classroom or gymnasium. The easy-to-follow curriculum, which adheres to common core educational standards and includes cross-curriculum activities for grades K-8, features activities to enhance cardiovascular health, coordination and endurance.

“Bowler’s Ed is a fun way for teachers and youth program leaders to engage kids in a sport that doesn’t have limitations based on size or strength,” IBC Youth Committee chair Melissa McDaniel. “Providing an introduction to bowling hopefully will ignite these kids’ desire to further explore the exciting possibilities available in our sport.”

A total of 21 kits have been awarded to the 15 schools and organizations. Harmony Evergreen Public Schools in Vancouver, Washington, will receive four of the kits while Big Hollow School District 38 in Ingleside, Illinois and the Middle Georgia United States Bowling Congress Association each will receive two kits. North Salem Elementary, Pittsboro Primary Elementary and Tri-West Middle School in the North Salem, Indiana, area will receive two kits.

The schools and organizations receiving grants are:

  • Ardmore Elementary School, Villa Park, Ill.
  • Big Hollow School District 38, Ingleside, Ill.
  • Corpus Christi School, Evansville, Ind.
  • Harmony Evergreen Public Schools, Vancouver, Wash.
  • Ignacio Conchos Elementary, Phoenix
  • Johnson Elementary, Aurora, Ill.
  • Lighthouse Education Center, Saint Joseph, Mich.
  • Krug Elementary School, Aurora, Ill.
  • Middle Georgia USBC Association, Centerville, Ga.
  • New World Preparatory Charter School, Staten Island, N.Y.
  • North Salem Elementary, Pittsboro Primary/Elementary, and Tri-West Middle School, North Salem, Ind.
  • Saint Joseph Grade School, South Bend, Ind.
  • Steindorf STEAM School, San Jose, Calif.
  • The Youth Center, Glen Gardner, N.J.
  • Walter Jackson Elementary, Decatur, Ala.

IBC Youth Development works with schools, bowling centers, associations, and other organizations to deliver Bowler’s Ed kits, an initiative supported by the entire bowling industry. It also seeks to bring bowling centers and associations together with schools in their community so physical education teachers can make bowling one of the sports they teach to their students.

The Bowler’s Ed Grant Program has awarded approximately $500,000 to schools and organizations in the form of Bowler’s Ed kits since 2009.

ARLINGTON, Texas – Champions have been announced at the 2018 Bowling.com Youth Open Championships, which recently welcomed United States Bowling Congress Youth members to the Dallas area as part of the Junior Gold Championships presented by the Brands of Ebonite International.

The 2018 event was held at Cityview Lanes in Fort Worth, Texas, on July 12-13, 20-22 and 28-29. Bowlers competed for titles in four-player team, doubles, singles and all-events competition in four age-based divisions – 20-and-under, 15-and-under, 12-and-under, 10-and-under – with separate divisions for boys and girls. There also were optional handicap divisions in each event.

Ryan Winters of Livonia, Michigan, capped his Youth Open Championships career by winning his third consecutive U20 all-events title. Winters, a Junior Team USA member in 2018, posted sets of 730 in doubles, 714 in team and 702 in singles for a winning score of 2,146.

Olivia Farwell of Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, and Alexis Neuer of Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, successfully defended their doubles title in the girls U20 division, winning with a 1,371 total. Farwell, who will be a Junior Team USA member in 2019, led the way with a 750 series, while Neuer, who’s on Junior Team USA 2018, added 621.

Madison Janack of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, rolled one of eight 300 games at the Youth Open Championships to claim the girls U20 singles title with a 716 total. Janack, also a member of Junior Team USA in 2018, had games of 190 and 226 before connecting for her perfect game.

Perfect games also were rolled by Zachary Burkhalter of Winona, Minnesota; Zachary Carter of Portage, Indiana; Cameron Hurwitz of Rochester, New York; Jordan Malott of Austin, Texas; Tyler Michel of Chesapeake, Virginia; Manuel Sanchez of Chicago; and Zach Singer of Buffalo Grove, Illinois.

Houston’s Christian Garcia captured two titles in the U15 boys division, taking all-events with a 2,106 total and singles with a 752 set.

In the U15 girls division, Jennifer Loredo of Fresno, California, claimed three titles. The U15 girls champion at the 2017 Junior Gold Championships helped California’s Nor Cal Rockstars to the team title with a 2,544 total. Loredo was joined by Alyssa Alexander, Jimmy Hunter and Harley Shene.

Loredo would team with Alexander to win the girls doubles title with a 1,338 score. Loredo rolled a 679 series in the effort, and Alexander added 659. Loredo added sets of 684 in team and 650 in singles to also win girls all-events with 2,013.

Karina Capron of Fremont, Nebraska, put together a similar effort as she collected three titles in the U12 girls division.

Capron, the 2017 U12 Junior Gold champion and 2018 runner-up, defended her doubles title with Keira Magsam, though they shared the 2018 title with their teammates, Paige Matiasek and Avery Domaguin, as both pairs posted 1,176 scores.

Capron won the singles title with 699, and she added scores of 599 in team and 572 in doubles to win all-events with 1,870.

In U10, Camden Malott of Austin, Texas, rolled to a second consecutive doubles title, but he did so alongside a different partner. Malott captured this year’s title with Gage Baker of Yorba Linda, California, after taking the 2017 title with Jack Tebeau. Malott led the way with 556, while Baker added 488 for a 1,044 total.

Malott and Baker also would help Bohn & Crew 15 to the U10 team title with a 1,938 total. They were joined in the effort by Donaven Kline and Ronin Rivera.

William Cunningham of Newark, New Jersey, won three titles across two age divisions. He teamed with Jake Diaz of Manalapan, New Jersey, to win U12 doubles with a 1,334 total, and he claimed the U10 boys singles (657) and all-events (1,872) titles. Cunningham also captured the handicap title in each of the three events.

A total of 230 four-player teams competed at the 2018 event, which featured more than 1,100 bowlers competing for scholarship money.

The 2019 Bowling.com Youth Open Championships will head to Detroit. The tournament will be held on select dates from July 11-28. Registration will open for the 2019 event on Dec. 1, 2018.

The Youth Open is a non-qualifying tournament open to any USBC Youth member. The event is held in the same city as the Junior Gold Championships to allow youth bowlers the opportunity to compete in each event.

ARLINGTON, Texas – The opportunity for teams to earn spots in the 2019 USA Bowling National Championships presented by Sixlets starts in October with the first of 16 regional events.

Each USA Bowling Regional event will have two divisions – 12-and-under and a 15-and-under – with the champions at each regional advancing to the national tournament, which will take place in the Detroit area in July 2019.

CBS Sports Network once again will televise the title matches of the USA Bowling National Championships. Each of the three previous finals of the event were nationally televised.

The majority of the regionals will be two-day events. On the first day, teams will bowl eight round-robin Baker matches to determine seeding for bracket play. Day 2 will feature a double-elimination match-play bracket, with each winner decided using a best-of-three Baker format, until a champion is determined in each division.

The four one-day regionals will have the same format, with all rounds taking place on one day.

Because four-person teams are used in USA Bowling events, the competition has a unique Baker format. For each Baker game, the first two bowlers in the lineup each bowl three frames (1-5-9 and 2-6-10, respectively), while the other two team members bowl two frames each (3-7 and 4-8).

USA Bowling Regional tournaments started in 2013, building the foundation that would lead to the inaugural USA Bowling National Championships in Indianapolis in 2016. The national event grew from the USA Bowling program, designed as a team-based youth program to introduce the sport to children.

USA Bowling Leagues share a team-based structure, similar to all youth sports, where young athletes receive instruction and have regular practice with a coach and then compete against other teams during a short eight- to 12-week season.

USA Bowling is a product of the Youth Education Services (YES) Fund, a joint initiative of the Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America and the United States Bowling Congress, supported by top bowling brands, including Bowling.com, Brunswick, Columbia 300, Ebonite, Hammer, QubicaAMF, Roto Grip, Storm and Track.
