USBC YOUTH MEMBERSHIP CHANGE – EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1, 2020
USBC will lower the maximum age for USBC Youth membership to 18 starting with the 2020-21 season. Youth bowlers must be age 17 before starting the new bowling season. The decision to lower the maximum age from 20 to 18, with agreement from the Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America and the IBC Youth Committee, will align bowling with other youth sports. ALSO, BOWLERS MUST BE 18 YEARS OF AGE TO JOIN A CERTIFIED USBC ADULT LEAGUE.
