1. Bowling is the newest Ohio High School Sport!
In April, 2006 The Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) unanimously voted to make boys bowling and girls bowling the two newest Ohio high school sports!
2. High School Bowling welcomes Every Student!
Bowling is a sport without gender or physical limitations. Size, speed, and strength do not preclude anyone from participating. Bowling provides a chance for non-physical students to participate in a non-contact sport activity. Bowling brings new students into Athletic Department activities and the more students in school sports programs makes the importance of athletics in the school stronger. Everyone can learn to bowl!
3. High School Bowling can lead to College $cholarship Opportunities!
Over 200 colleges and universities have men’s and women’s bowling teams and many offer full and partial bowling scholarships. Bowling is now an NCAA-recognized women’s sport.
4. Bowling is a Lifetime Activity!
Students have great opportunities today to participate in a wide selection of youth sports activities. Few other sports offer the chance to play after a certain age without a high skill level. Bowling does not have a “weeding-out” process. Bowling is a lifetime activity. The chance to play is forever. Skills learned in high school bowling are applicable long after graduation.
