New youth processing system is now available

The United States Bowling Congress launched its new Internet-based system for processing youth league bowlers.The new system will process membership, awards and averages for youth bowlers starting with the 2009-10 season. WinLABS will no longer be available to process youth leagues.Because the new method is an Internet-based system, associations and bowling centers will be able to process their youth membership from any computer with Internet access. The system also will allow for a more efficient means of system upgrades throughout the year without the need for software downloads. USBC staff is continuing to evaluate the processing system and more features will be available in the near future.Before using the new system, please take time to read the Quick Reference Guide to familiarize yourself with the process. While the guide is not a user reference manual, it should provide answers to several scenarios you might encounter.

If you have questions or feedback with the online system, contact USBC at 1-800-514-BOWL ext. 8973.

ARLINGTON, Texas –
The Youth Education Services (YES) Fund expanded its partner base as five recognized bowling industry organizations stepped forward to join the program dedicated to youth bowling.

Kegel, Luby Publishing, International Bowling Pro Shop and Instructors Association (IBPSIA), Billiard and Bowling Institute of America (BBIA) and Bowlers Journal International are now official YES Fund partners after making significant contributions.

“I am extremely grateful to see these leaders in the bowling industry step forward in support of our future,” Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America (BPAA) Director of Youth, Chad Murphy said. “The YES Fund continues to be a way to unite all of bowling for the common goal of promoting youth involvement in the sport.”

When the YES Fund was created last year, an initial project was the development of a new mainstream sports model for bowlers 12 years old and younger. Preliminary pilot programs have received positive feedback and additional markets soon will have the opportunity to take part in the program.   

The YES Fund also has focused on providing assistance to high school bowling. In November, The YES Fund - High School Grant Program launched and will provide $2,500 to four high school programs annually.

“All of the YES Fund projects are designed to keep young people engaged in bowling,” Murphy said. “The outstanding commitment from our partners makes this possible and we hope more companies and individuals will join the YES Fund on this journey.”

The YES Fund is a joint initiative of BPAA and the United States Bowling Congress. The Yes Fund also is supported by its founding partners Brunswick, Columbia 300, Ebonite, 900 Global, Hammer, QubicaAMF, Roto Grip, Storm and Track.
