If you are scheduled for school orientation that conflicts with your tryout timeframe please do the following:

FYI NEW THIS YEAR:Teams are limited to a 6 bowler roster for all levels, in previous years it has been 7. Depending on numbers of bowlers at tryouts bowlers may know their team placement or it may be determined by the end of the following week after the coaching staff have had more time to evaluate.

2020/21 Bowling Ball Rule Reminder:

Effective August 1st.  The one change that will affect some athletes will be the weight hole rule. It will deem a bowling ball and delivery illegal.

The rule: IF THERE IS A HOLE IN A BALL NOT BEING USED DURING DELIVERY, THAT BALL WILL BE DEEMED ILLEGAL.

What this means if a 2 hander throws a ball with only 2 fingers and the ball in play has 3 holes that ball is illegal.  Another example if a conventional player’s ball has 4 holes that ball is also illegal.  The penalty will be for that delivery a zero.

Please make the appropriate adjustments to any ball. If you have questions regarding if a ball is legal or not please show it to the coaching staff and discus prior to using at a meet or practice.

Thank you,

Head Coach- Jen Willbur
