Attached is the information for the 2016 Virginia State Pepsi USBC Youth Bowling Championships.
Big Change for this year!! We have added an optional handicap event in all divisions. Qualifying at the league level is still by SCRATCH scores. If a bowler qualifies to advance to the STATE LEVEL and pays the Pepsi entry fee, he or she can then pay an additional $10 to participate in the optional handicap side event in the same age division.
Otherwise, the format remains the same. All divisions are based solely on the bowler’s birthday, not their ages as of 1 August. See the dates in the rules. LEAGUE LEVEL qualifiers advance to the STATE LEVEL which will be held at AMF Hanover in Mechanicsville, Virginia outside Richmond.
Dates will be as follows:
April 9 and 10
April 16 and 17
April 30 and May 1
The champions in the U12, U15 and U20 divisions will advance to the Junior Gold Championships in Indianapolis in July 2016. Champions in the optional handicap divisions do NOT advance to the Junior Gold Championships.
