The United States Bowling Academy will be hosting the annual Midwest Collegiate Bowling Experience & Expo (formerly the College Combine) at The Mermaid Entertainment in Mounds View, Minnesota. This is the eighth year in a row the Midwest Collegiate Bowling Experience & Expo has showcased youth in front of some of the best College Coaches in the country. The event is open to all youth members.
The Collegiate Bowling Experience is open to all kids still in school. If you already have signed or committed on a college it is recommended that you do not attend. The Collegiate Bowling Experience has limited openings. USBA will create waiting list once entries are full. Each year there are always openings, so please register on the waiting list. Open spots will be given to high school seniors and juniors first from the waiting list
All bowlers will participate in a tournament format. With COVID rules, watch for updates regarding bowling start time. We are doing everything we can to get as many youth bowlers in front of college coaches. At this time we are planning 2 bowling shift times.
All scoring is done on a scratch (no handicap) basis.
This Collegiate Bowling Experience will not count as an event nor points to the USBA Tournament Flight Series.
All scholarship funds shall be returned 100%. All scholarship funds for each event will be deposited in the SMART Fund. Prize ratio shall be at 40% in each flight (fractions .5 and above will be rounded up).
There will be parent seminars during the bowling event to give out great information. Guest speakers will be announced at a later time.
The Expo portion is open to both youth and parents attending. College coaches will be on hand to answer your questions.
