Our Youth Bowling Program is certified by the USBC (United States Bowling Congress). This organization promotes the sport of bowling for all ages. Lake City Bowl has been offering a youth program for over 20 years. Not only do we promote the sport of bowling, but the bowlers also learn about leadership roles, taking on responsibility, sportsmanship, discipline, and self-confidence.
The leagues bowl on Saturday mornings from September to April. This year we have about 100 bowlers participating in the program. We have conduct and dress code rules which must be followed. Trained coaches volunteers their time to help the bowlers improve their skills.
The bowlers have some fun tournaments throughout the year, but they also have some competitive ones. Pepsi and the State of Florida both sponsor a tournament once a year. We hold a scholarship tournament here at Lake City Bowl just for our local bowlers. We try to reward everyone by giving scholarship money to everyone that participates. Top bowlers receive more but everyone at least gets their entry fee back. The scholarship money is held for the bowler in a SMART account. SMART is a nationwide organization designed just for the purpose of storing young bowlers' money until they need it. Last year 43 bowlers attended our scholarship tournament and the tournament paid out over $3,500.00 in scholarship money. We would like to exceed that this year.
This is how we try to get the community involved by donating money for the scholarship tournament. The bowlers look forward to this tournament every year so they can continue to build their scholarship fund.
Thank you for considering contributing to this simple and rewarding way to give back to the community. If you would like to come out and watch the scholarship tournament will be held on March 27th, 2010 starting at 9:00am.
