Boys & Girls Bowling

Office of Sports and Administration

The Boys and Girls Citywide Bowling program supports 55 schools and 110 bowling teams.

The alignment consists of six conferences including three Southside and three Northside conferences. Four teams from each section qualify for the City Championship playoffs each season.

The team who hits the most pins wins

The playoffs begin with 24 teams competing in an elimination-style bowling competition. The City Championship series includes four Northside teams and four Southside teams. Determining the top team is easy. The team with the highest number of pins wins and gets to take home the City Team Championship Award.

Not everyone goes home empty-handed. The top player is also honored with a City Champion Award. The second place team, along with the five best scoring individuals, also receive runner-up awards.  Once the City Playoffs are over, each school then has the option of entering the State Championship Series.
