12/6/12 USBC Honors Awards Update, Uniforms Shirts, Team Designation and Ebonite/KHSAA State Championship Hotel Reservation Information

December 6, 2012 Bowling Blog Updates


We hope that your bowling seasons are off to a good start.  With the addition of several new teams this year, we look forward to an exciting season and post season tournament.  

Our office was recently made aware that the USBC has made a change in the student athletes ability to receive honors awards when obtaining the necessary scores during a students high school league.  There is now an additional $5 charge and paperwork to be filed with the USBC in order to be eligible with a qualifying score.  Please read over the recently added links on the KHSAA website under general Information on the Bowling page for FAQs about this program and the forms needed to apply –

We have received a few inquiries about uniform shirts.  We wanted to remind you that the uniform shirts no longer require a collar.  This has been updated in the Bowling Implementation Handbook.  We do require schools to put their school name or logo on their uniform shirts.  This may be on the front, front pocket, sleeve or on the back as long as it is visible for other teams and spectators to identify.

ADDING NUMBERS – We are asking schools to add numbers to the sleeve of the shirt.  This will aid in the tracking of substitutions and tracking participants.  No two student athletes may have the same number.  The number should appear on the right sleeve and should be a contrasting color from the jersey color and no smaller than two inches in size.  This will be a phased in requirement, which will become mandatory for the 2013-2014 school year.

Clarification – There has been no change in the rule for “coed” teams, but to help with rules clarification and interpretations we will phase out the term “coed”.  Since coed teams are considered boys teams, we will begin referring to coed teams as boys teams.

Hotel Reservations – This year we have secured a number of rooms at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport (directly across the street from the Executive Strike and Spare – 830 Phillips Lane, Louisville, KY 40209-1387).  At anytime you may choose the following link –

or give their reservation line a call at 888-233-9527 to hold rooms for the the Ebonite/KHSAA State Championship Event.
