Bowling News USA - August 4, 2014 Learn More About Youth Education Services (YES) High School Grant Assistance Program

The Youth Education Services (YES) initiative is a united effort by industry leaders in the sport, initiated by the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America and the United States Bowling Congress, dedicated to youth bowling development and marketing.

The YES effort is supported by top bowling brands including Roto Grip, Storm,, Brunswick, Columbia 300, Ebonite, Hammer, QubicaAMF and Track. Each made a significant contribution and the YES Fund has received more than $250,000 in commitments. IBC Managing Director of Youth Development Chad Murphy, supported by USBC and BPAA staff, directs programs initiated through the YES initiative.

The advancement of youth bowling is the objective of the YES initiative. The initial focus was the development of a mainstream sports model for bowlers 12 and under. USA Bowling was created as a new team-based structure for competition along with developing training and recruiting programs to attract volunteer coaches. The YES Fund also made the High School Grant Assistance Program, which each year awards $2,500 to four high schools to start or maintain a bowling program, possible.   

The YES effort is open to anyone interested in becoming involved in youth bowling - companies and organizations involved in youth sports, members of the bowling industry, bowling center proprietors and individuals.

The High School Grant Assistance Program, administered by USBC High School through the Youth Education Services (YES) Fund, will provide $2,500 to four high school programs annually.
The high school teams must show financial need because of budget cuts or other changes, or may request funding to start a new program.
