Previously, the top two boys and top two girls in the 12 and over scratch division earned spots in the Junior Gold national tournament.Bowlers who qualify in the U15 division through Pepsi must compete in the U15 division at the North Pointe Junior Gold Championships.

The U6 division is optional and may not be offered in every state.



Registered Volunteer Program

How can associations help with the RVP Program?

“Associations can meet with bowling centers and discuss the importance of the program, talk to the local coaches and ensure their board and youth committee members are up to date”

Do You Know Who’s on the Lanes with your Kids?

  • RVP- A USBC program designed to keep individuals with criminal records involving sexual misconduct, violence and other felony behaviors out of USBC Youth programs.
  • Who? Anyone 18 years of age and older who has contact with USBC Youth bowlers including coaches, league officials, bowling center employees.
