Why should our league certify with USBC?
Every season, this question is asked, so USBC has
created this document to
help promote the many benefits of certifying your league with USBC.
Adult leagues which allow minors to participate
Adult leagues allowing USBC youth members 18 or younger
to participate must be certified as an adult/youth league, must comply
with USBC Rule 400 and those 18 or older must complete U.S. Center for
SafeSport training. All officers must be a Registered Volunteer
(SafeSport trained and background screening through NCSI).
Promote your scholarship leagues. If you have unassigned
funds in your SMART account, use them to promote bowling. Inform the
parents/youth you are adding additional scholarship funds to the prize
fund. Or, have the youth/parents help you promote your leagues. For
example: Everyone receives prizes in the form of scholarships, and for
each new bowler you bring in, you both receive scholarship funds. This
is a great way to have others promote your leagues.
If you do not provide scholarships, get started by
submitting this form to [email protected].
Don’t forget when certifying your league, include your
SMART account number on the league application.
