The USBC Youth is a non-profit youth organization focused on providing fun for youth bowlers and adult volunteers. There are nearly 500,000 members competing in 45,000 USBC leagues and tournaments in roughly 7,400 bowling centers in the United States, Canada, and on U.S. military bases abroad. All youth who have not reached their 21st birthday on, or before August 2nd can become members. All programs and services encourage healthy competition, physical fitness, good sportsmanship, and positive citizenship. Through the efforts of USA Bowling, the U.S Olympic Committee has granted junior Olympic status to USBC youth bowling leagues in the United States.

For many years Napa Bowl has offered youth bowling. The objective, until 1995 was to produce “recreational” bowlers. The entire bowling industry with rare exception produced bowlers at the recreational level. Despite this philosophy, there have been several professional bowlers produced by Napa Bowl.

In recent years the bowling industry has provided resources and training to alter the objectives of youth bowling programs. Emphasis is being shifted to bowling being taught as a sport . Napa Bowl endorsed this shift in 1996 and began steps to incorporate the appropriate changes. The key to this transition is quality, and high level coaching. All coaches support the Napa Youth Program, as well as they are certified by the USBC training system. Education and sportsmanship will be stressed in each segment of the program. There are three major age groups for USBC members:

  • Bantams - Up to 8 years of age
  • Preps - 9 to 11 years of age
  • Junior/Senior/Majors - 12 to 18 years of age

USBC Coach Approval Procedure

All coaches must be USBC certified prior to dealing with members on the lanes. Any adult is welcome to become certified through a Napa Bowl Coach or through a Nor Cal USBC clinic.

Once an adult is certified, they may request to join the USBC coaching staff. The current committee of Napa Bowl Coaches will convened to accept or reject the new volunteers request.

All accepted volunteers will be placed were help is needed, and not necessarily the league to which their child belongs to. Napa Bowl is interested in enthusiastic, and caring, positive role models to assist in coaching USBC members. If you are interested please contact Napa Bowl proprietors or any current USBC coach.

Parent - Coach Program

Parents are an indispensable part of any child’s success, bowling is no exception. Your support and encouragement are necessary for your child’s enjoyment & improvement. It is important that your child/children trust their coaches, and understand that communication between the coaches, you as parents and themselves is an ongoing process.

Parents may communicate with their children during bowling and share advice. However, USBC rules do not allow parents in the lane/settee area during league or tournament play.

If you would like the opportunity to gain knowledge by becoming a “Parent Coach”, a training video is available. After viewing the video and passing a simple test you would be allowed to be more involved in the USBC bowling program at Napa Bowl. This will allow you to help your child become a better bowler and enhance the understanding and communication between coaches and parents.
