  AGE DIVISIONS: BASED ON BIRTH DATE:  ( based on a Fiscal Year not a calendar year, Aug 1 to July 31)              

   U12 -  AUGUST 1, 2008 TO CURRENT DATE                                                                                              

   U15 - AUGUST 1,  2005 TO JULY 31,  2008

   U18 - AUGUST 1,  2002 TO JULY 31,  2005                 

   U20 - AUGUST 1,  2000 TO JULY 31,  2002  


Sometimes the birthdate cut offs can be confusing to figure out, especially if you have a bowler who is age 12, 15, 17, 20. 

I have developed this to help you better understand, if you still need help making sure your in the correct division.  

If a bowler turns 12, 15, or 18 anytime after Aug 1, 2020.    You stay in your age division of U12, U15, U18.

A bowler in the U20 division cannot turn 21 before July 31, 2020.  If they turn 21 after July 31, 2020 they can bowl U20.

If a bowler turns 12, 15, or 18 anytime from Jan 1, 2020  - July 31, 2020 you move up division.

All other ages will fall in between U12, U15, U18, U20 divisions.

If your a bowler who turns 21 anytime prior to Aug 1, 2020, you are to old, and aged out this year.


Keep in mind once you win your Jr Gold Spot your entry fee will be lower.

It always seems to be more expensive for the first few tournaments since you

are paying for memberships and to Bowl for Gold.
