November 11, 2010: According to the high school athletics participation survey conducted by the National Federation of State High School Associations, high school bowling continues to grow. The NFSHSA survey found that 52,653 student-athletes participated in bowling programs in 4,886 schools this past season, a 2.5 percent increase from the 2008-09 season. What’s the reason for this? Bob Schoneman, USBC Director of Association and Youth Development, said it’s because more high schools are learning about the value of having a bowling program. “The costs of a program are minimal compared to some sports,” said Schoneman, “and there are so many opportunities for young bowlers to earn college scholarships.” This season, 19 states will offer bowling as a varsity sport and another 28 states will have high school bowling competition at the club level. The survey accounts for varsity states only, and does not count club programs. The NFHS has compiled a participation survey each year since 1971 based on numbers it receives from member associations. In five of the last nine years, high school bowling has seen double-digit percentage growth, and the actual number of bowlers in varsity programs has more than doubled in the last eight years. USBC High School offers a free membership program through which coaches can nominate outstanding bowlers to the national Dexter/USBC High School All-American Team. Coaches also receive resource materials such as the USBC High School Guide.  - Bowlers Journal Cybr Report
