About Girls Minnesota High School Bowling

 

 

        2011 is the Inaugural Season of Girls Minnesota High School Bowling

 

        Girls Minnesota High School Bowling is very similar to high school football, basketball, baseball, and other popular high school athletics. A group of students from a high school unite to make a team that will represent their school and their community. The main difference between those sports and bowling is that the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) is not the governing body for high school bowling.  Girls Minnesota High School Bowling is a club sport administered by the Bowling Proprietors Association of Minnesota.

 

        Bowlers in grades 7 12 are eligible to participate.

 

        Girls Minnesota High School Bowling uses the baker-system. Five bowlers each bowl two frames to complete a single game. It is a very exciting format for both players and spectators.

  

        A team's sponsoring bowling center will provide free lanes for practices and conference competition. During a single season high school bowlers will receive literally hundreds of dollars of bowling and instruction for a nominal fee.  The most any high school bowler will be asked to pay is $75.00.

 

        Minnesota High School Bowling is administered by the Bowling Proprietors Association (BPAM) and is governed by a set of rules that have been modeled after those of the MSHSL. Three volunteers appointed by the BPAM, known as the triad commission, uphold the rules of the program and make judgments on matters the rules do not cover.
