It is the opinion of many that Minnesota High School Bowling and Girls Minnesota High School Bowling

are the best-organized club programs in the state. The fall co-ed league features 129 varsity and 119 junior varsity

teams, with more than 1575 students competing throughout the state. The girls-only winter league is just four years

old and features 42 varsity teams with 280 students competing statewide.



Minnesota High School Bowling uses the baker-system. Five bowlers each bowl two frames

to complete a single game. It is a very exciting competition format for both players and spectators.



Each fall, 44 varsity and 50 junior varsity teams from around the state will advance to

postseason competition where they will compete for a chance at winning the state tournament.



Minnesota High School Bowling and Girls Minnesota High School Bowling are administered

by the Bowling Proprietors Association (BPAM) and are governed by a set of rules

that have been modeled after those of the Minnesota State High School League. Learn more about

the leagues at www.mhsb.org  or www.girlsmhsb.org.
