The United States Bowling Congress officially launched Jan. 1, 2005, as the organization to serve adult and youth bowlers in the United States. Today, USBC serves almost two million members. USBC is the national governing body of bowling as recognized by the United States Olympic Committee (USOC). We’re a membership organization that provides standardized rules, regulations and benefits to make bowling fair and fun for everyone. USBC stands for values that include commitment, innovation, integrity, inclusiveness and fun.

Part of USBC’s mission, as the national governing body, is to provide programs and services that enhance the bowling experience. As state or local representatives of USBC, the board plays a vital role in the success of USBC programs by ensuring they are implemented properly. The following highlights a number of programs and services which, if implemented correctly, can help to increase exposure and build awareness and affiliation with USBC.


To: Youth Directors and League Secretaries;

We have presented National High Game & Series awards to some very deserving youth bowlers in the last couple of years. I would like to see more apps sent to us to be processed. Only 2 centers from NLAC sent in team award apps. The applications are provided to each league. Please take the time to fill out the apps and send them in. You never know – you might have some team that was the highest in nation and never turned in. App has 2, 3, 4, 5, person teams and all adult male, female, mixed, & youth bowlers. With all minimum qualifying scores listed, scratch scores only. Make a difference, look at what is offered and take advantage of it. Bowlers dues pay for this. All Associations will process the awards to national for recognition. It only takes a few minutes to do. Thank you for all you do…

Association Manager
