YBC (Youth Bowling) Info

Youth Bowling Canada was launched in 1963 by the Bowling Proprietors' Association of Canada and since then it has been the breeding ground for the talented individuals who, now as adults, can be seen on televised bowling events earning thousands in prize money.

A program rich in history, the YBC strives to provide a friendly, social and exciting environment for some 30,000 youngsters weekly across Canada. An environment free of harassment and the many negative influences which can be found all too easily just about everywhere these days.

From an early age YBC members learn the joys of socializing with their peers in a positive atmosphere, and the satisfaction of self-improvement. Thanks to the efforts and dedication of thousands of adult volunteers, YBC members learn to improve their physical coordination, learn to appreciate the values of fair play and learn to take part in a team environment. In YBC, EVERYONE PLAYS!

Unlike some sports where quite often only the more talented individuals are ever offered an opportunity to shine, in YBC everyone plays regardless of ability. Nobody warms the bench and everyone gets to have fun!

Throughout the bowling season, YBC leagues run several In-House tournaments which help acquaint the YBC member with the excitement and experience of tournament competition. Because the majority of YBC play (both league and tournament) is conducted on a handicap basis, a novice can win an event just as easily as a more experienced player.

For those who are more skilled at the sport YBC offers the 4 Steps To Stardom, a championship event which begins at the house level, proceeds to a Zone Championship, a Provincial Championship and culminates at the YBC National Championships.
