A Thank You

Sponsors are at the core of who the Elite Youth Tour is. Without support, it would be hard to sustain. We have a great group of amazing sponsors – many who have believed in us from the start.

To date, we have given away over $341,110 and many, many Junior Gold spots thanks to Storm. Elite Youth Tour Bowlers stand out at Junior Gold. Mabel Cummins won the U15G division and we have had multiple bowlers make the Junior Gold TV SHow. We have also celebrated an Elite Youth Tour champion who went on to win the Team USA Trials and National Amateur Champion. Congrats, Cameron Crowe! 

We believe that the Elite Youth Tour should be way more than just youth bowling tournaments. We are cultivating a space to grow future leaders. We believe by using bowling as a platform, we are able to create a difference in the community, and society.

  • ELIGIBILITY
    USBC Youth or Junior Gold membership required. If you are not currently a USBC member, you may purchase your membership the day of the event. If a bowler wishes to be eligible to qualify for Junior Gold that participant must be a current Junior Gold member or purchase a Junior Gold membership prior to bowling in the tournament.
  • FORMAT
    There will be no handicap for this tournament; all bowlers will compete with actual pin fall totals(scratch). Traditional Format: Each bowler will bowl a 5 game qualifying block moving to a different lane after each game. The field will then be cut to the top 50% (plus ties). Advancing bowlers will bowl 2 games. Scores from the qualifying round WILL carry over into the advancers round. After 7 games, the field will be cut to the top 5, based on 7-game total pinfall, who will compete in a stepladder finals to determine the tournament champion. Stepladder matches will be one game total pins.
  • EYT DIVISIONS
    We follow USBC Rules regarding age divisions. (Except for U23) U12 Boys & Girls - 08/01/2011 - Later U15 Boys & Girls - 08/01/2008 - 07/31/2011 U18 Boys & Girls - 08/01/2005 - 07/31/2008 U23 Elite (Men/Women Combined) - 8/1/2000 - 7/31/2005 Each division must have a minimum of 4 participants to complete the division. If there are not 4 players in a division, the players who would qualify to participate in that division will be combined with the next appropriate age division (U12 to U15, U15 to U18) of their gender. Bowlers may opt to “bowl up” an age division of their gender. U23 Elite is considered an "Adult Division." Those in college may still receive scholarships or can opt for Cash Payment. The U23 Division will be separated from the rest of the youth. In the case of bowlers "bowling up" to the U23 division in a team, or doubles event- the whole U23 division will be paid in scholarship. (so that the youth bowler is protected regarding Rule 400)
  • TIES
    If there is a tie in any division to determine the advancing player into the championship round (stepladder round), the bowlers who are tied will compete in a 9th and 10th frame roll of until the advancing player is determined. If there is a tie during a stepladder round match, a 9th and 10th frame roll off will be used until the advancing player is determined.
