The 2021 State Bowling Tournament will be held over two separate weekends in November. The State Bowling Tournament Quota Survey will be sent out to delegations at the beginning of September asking delegations to choose a first choice and second choice preference for location and day to bowl. The quota survey will be due on Friday, September 24. The information submitted by each delegation will be used to plan locations and shift times. Delegations MUST complete a quota survey in order to bowl.
Delegations will be able to attend ONE location and will not be able to attend both weekends. Events offered will be singles and Unified doubles. All participants will be able to compete in ONE event (singles or Unified doubles) but not both this year.
No meals will be provided at any of the venues.
Tournament fees will be $5 per participant. This includes athletes, coaches and Unified Partners. Fees go towards facility rental, bowling fees and awards.
Important note: If SOMN is still in the Orange phase for Return to Play, we will be unable to hold an in-person tournament due to indoor size restrictions. In this situation, we will offer virtual bowling tournament as a competition option. Teams would continue to practice and submit scores later in the season. A decision will be made on October 11 regarding the status of the tournament and delegations will be notified at that time.

2021 Virtual Bowling Options
These options are for bowling participants that do not want to practice in person or are not able to wear a mask during the moderate or significant risk phases for Return to Play. All virtual bowling participants will receive a digital award emailed to them after the season.
Bowlers participate on their own
Individuals may bowl on their own. Bowlers should keep track of their average throughout the season to submit to their coach. Coaches will register these bowlers online for virtual bowling in singles or Unified doubles. (Unified bowlers would bowl separately and scores would be added together for a total score)
Bowling app or video game
Play a bowling video game from your phone, tablet, computer, Nintendo, Xbox or Playstation. Bowlers should keep track of their high score to submit to their coach. Coaches will register these athletes online for virtual bowling in “At Home Bowling App or Video Game”.
