About USA Bowling

USA Bowling is a new mainstream youth sports model with coaching, league, tournament, and summer camp components. USA Bowling aims to follow a similar format of traditional youth team sports by utilizing shorter seasons, a Baker style format, one coach per team and instructional opportunities for both children and coaches.  

Teams ready to compete at the next level can attend one of the 16 Regional USA Bowling Tournaments to compete for a spot at the USA Bowling National Championships held every summer.  

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