2017 USBA Tournament Series year in review
We had 23 stops in the 2017-18 season. We had a total of 880 bowlers with an average of 38 bowlers per stop. There were 180 boys and 69 girls from MN, IA, WI, ND, SD, and WA represented. Many stops were lucky to have collegiate bowlers and college coaches in the attendance watching if not bowling their self. USBA Tournament Series paid out $29,314 in scholarships this season all paid into the SMART program.
USBA qualified 44 youth for Jr Gold in Cleveland, and 5 for Dallas in 2018.

USBA Tournament Series would like to thank the numerous volunteers that helped out all season long. We could have not done it without you. Thank you to all the parents for taking time bringing your kids all around to our tournaments. We would also like to thank SokGuru and Jazzy Ape for their continued support in donating into the youth scholarship fund. Most importantly thank you to all our bowlers young and old for your support all season, we can’t wait to see you in September.
We started the USBA Tournament Series with 6 stops in 2016-17 season. This last year we grew to 23 stops in 3 regions. As the USBA Tournament Series looks forward to next year, we plan to have 43 stops in 5 regions for our 2017-18 season. Our regions next season will be Southern MN, Southeast MN / West WI, Northwest MN, Northeast MN, and Iowa. We continue to emphasis that our tournament series is open to all skills levels, with a majority open to all ages (depending on lane availability). We welcome all college coaches to come watch our tournaments. If you are unable to, we do our best to Live Stream our step ladder finals on our Facebook page. We also are launching our YouTube channel so you can find and watch any past videos.
We list all our tournaments on our website www.USBA.rocks and on TeamApp. We have other youth tournaments posted on TeamApp as well. If you have any questions, want to know more about our tournament series, or want your tournament added on TeamApp please feel free to contact us.
