  • Completeness, legibility, and timeliness of application packet

All bowlers should be keeping their bowling history any time they participate in regular leagues, sport leagues, tournaments, and any other bowling venue. This should accompany the application.

Submitting your current high average doesn’t show your skill set or separate you from other potential applicants. This is why you should keep copies of your participation in tournaments, leagues, etc. This information allows us to review your history, check participation in tournaments such as USBC Nationals (Open or Women’s), City/State, PBA regionals or others. It gives you, the Soldier athlete, a bowling packet or resume. This is much like applying for a job, you should be able to show what you have achieved, participated in, etc.
