Youth Bowling in California

Youth Bowling

CUSBC promotes and supports the youth bowlers of California. Youths aged 4-19 can participate in scholarship leagues and tournaments.

Glow Bowling / Birthday Parties
Many bowling centers offer fun bowling events like glow bowling (black lights, music and glow-in-the-dark bowling balls and lanes) and birthday parties. These are great opportunities for family and friends to get together and have some fun. Check with your local bowling center for pricing and availability.

Leagues
Most youth programs are held on Saturday mornings, but some centers run weekday programs as well. Many youth programs have coaches available to help teach and guide the bowlers helping them to improve as well as earn scholarships in some.  Some centers offer leagues on different days of the week and some with different formats such as adult/youth leagues, doubles leagues, etc.  Talk to the Youth Program Coach in your local center to see what leagues they have available. Many youth leagues offer scholarships at the end of the season.

Tournaments
Almost all youth bowling tournaments are scholarship events.  All USBC certified tournaments require participants to have current USBC membership. With this membership, they will eligible for USBC awards and recognition, both state and national.  When entering a scholarship tournament, make sure to keep good records of how much scholarship money is won and who the tournament director was in charge of that event. All USBC certified events are required for all scholarship funds to be processed through the USBC SMART program, in which case the participant will receive receipt of the award from USBC.  Tournaments that are not USBC certified may offer scholarships, but be sure to know where your award money is from that organization.

 

CUSBC offers four USBC certified youth events:

Youth State Championships – This tournament consists of team, doubles, singles and all-events within 5 average divisions.  The event is held over a a two-three weekend time frame in July. Over $13,000 is awarded annually in this tournament.

Pepsi Youth Championships – This is a national event that has three levels of qualifying and multiple age divisions. There are two league level qualifying periods (Nov & Jan). Bowlers qualify based on a ratio of 1:2 to the District Finals held in March. Bowlers in the top three age divisions will qualify to the State Finals based on a ratio of 1:5.  $50,000 is awarded annually in this tournament.

Youth State Scratch Tournament – This newly modified tournament is for handicap and scratch bowlers in a competitive qualifying, semi-finals and finals format. One weekend (July) is for local qualifying (5 game blocks – multiple sites) and another weekend (Aug) is held for the Last Chance Qualifying, Semi-Finals and Finals competition.

 

Scholarships

CUSBC proudly offers scholarships through all of our youth events. We also offer academic and participation based scholarships such as our State Youth $1000 Scholarship and the Star of Tomorrow $2,500 Scholarship.  Education is extremely important and what better way to earn scholarships then to earn them by BOWLING and having a great time!

 

USBC Youth Eligibility

USBC youth membership is open to those aged 19 or younger as of August 1 and have maintained compliance with USBC Youth Rule 400.

Youth bowler may not bowl in any activity (substitute or pace included), which offers any of the following as prizes such as cash or bonds or merchandise exceeding $500 in value. 

Youth may bowl in SINGLES competition (including sidepots/brackets) offering such prizes as mentioned above PROVIDED PRIOR TO BOWLING that:

  • the youth signs the USBC Singles Competition Prize Waiver and the competition agrees to award the youth's prize in the form of a scholarship; or
  • the youth signs the USBC Singles Competition Prize Waiver waiving his/her rights to any prizes which may be in violation of this rule.  

Buying or selling of earned prizes is prohibited. Any youth bowler deemed in violation of this rule is subject to disciplinary action including the potential loss of youth membership.

Note: There are no limits on scholarship amounts or entry fees (must be paid directly to the tournament director/manager) and reimbursement of actual travel expenses into the next higher level of competition or any tournament or event. (Receipts must be provided upon request.) The prizes authorized by a state high school athletic association or collegiate athletic association recognized by USBC and USBC Collegiate are not subject to the limitations of this rule.

 

Rule 400 revised for Youth Bowling Awards

The United States Bowling Congress Board of Directors has approved the modification of Youth Membership Eligibility Rule 400, effective immediately, to expand the awards deemed acceptable under the terms of USBC Youth membership. In addition to previously allowed symbolic awards, USBC Youth members are now eligible to be awarded bowling equipment, gift certificates, apparel and other merchandise prizes with a total value not greater than $500 in any one event, excluding scholarships. 

The modifications also allow for USBC Youth members to compete in singles competition where cash and/or bonds are awarded, as well as merchandise prizes exceeding $500 in total in any one event, but must waive rights to these awards by signing and completing the USBC Prize Waiver form prior to their participation in that competition. 

Acceptance of awards of cash or bonds of any amount or any merchandise prizes with a total value higher than $500 per event remain prohibited for youth members under USBC's revised Rule 400. Violations of the terms of Rule 400 could result in the loss or suspension of youth membership.

There also remains no limit on the value of scholarships that can be awarded in youth competition. The scholarship funds from USBC certified events and leagues will continue to be required to be deposited with USBC's SMART program. USBC Youth members may be awarded scholarships from singles competition in which cash and/or bonds are awarded. “The USBC Board determined that the former Rule 400 placed unnecessary restrictions on everyone associated with USBC Youth membership and concluded the best course of action to alleviate this issue was to modify Rule 400 effective immediately,” USBC President Michael Carroll said. The previous version of Rule 400 intended to protect the current and future interscholastic sports eligibility of USBC Youth members through the most restrictive interpretations and limitations. The USBC Board concluded that placing these restrictions on all USBC Youth members was unnecessary due to the lack of uniform eligibility standards for interscholastic sports nationally.

"The new structure of USBC allows for addressing of significant issues to be handled in an expedited manner,” said USBC Chief Executive Officer Roger Dalkin. “The previous version of Rule 400 placed undue and unintended restrictions on USBC Youth members, league and association coordinators and proprietors. The USBC Board modified Rule 400 to address these restrictions and expand acceptable awards that promote and enhance the participation in youth bowling.”

The USBC Board concluded that compliance with local/state interscholastic eligibility rules and policies is the responsibility of the individual member and his/her legal guardian. However, USBC will continue to educate USBC Youth members and their legal guardians that competing in USBC certified competitions and acceptance of some awards now acceptable under Rule 400 could jeopardize individual member’s interscholastic sports amateur eligibility.

These changes do not affect the USBC Youth High Score Awards program.

“USBC’s Youth membership program, certified tournaments and leagues, as well as USBC’s dedication to the growth of high school and collegiate bowling, offer youth of all ages many choices to be active in the sport of bowling,” said Mitch Mitchell, chairman of the USBC Youth Committee.
