HISTORY

The North Los Angeles USBC (NLAC USBC) was newly chartered May 1, 2006. The following associations were merged together to make one local association: Los Angeles Bowling Association (LABA), San Fernando Valley Women’s Bowling Association (SFVWBA), San Fernando Valley Youth Bowling Association (SFVYBA) and the Santa Monica Women’s Bowling Association (SMWBA).

In 2014, NLAC USBC acquired the youth members from Ventura County Youth Bowling Association when their organization folded. This included the centers of Buena Lanes, Harley’s Camarillo Lanes, Harley’s Simi Lanes and Harley’s Valley Bowl.

In 2016, NLAC USBC acquired the members from the Antelope Valley USBC when their organization was dissolved. This included the centers of Bowlero Lancaster (formerly Brunswick Sands Bowl) and Bowlero Palmdale (formerly Brunswick Vista Lanes).

In 2021, NLAC USBC and Southern LA County USBC (SLAC USBC) voted to merge into one organization.  NLAC USBC members voted on May 15, 2021 and SLAC USBC members voted on June 19, 2021 to both move forward as one organization starting with the 2021-22 season on August 1, 2021.  On July 18, 2021, NLAC USBC and SLAC USBC officially met to vote on the by-laws and the board of directors for the new organization. This progressive change will provide economic efficiencies, larger tournament opportunities, and membership cost savings through the removal of transfer fees between the two associations.
