  • June 19-20, 2021 : Youth -College  Bowling Showcase - Coaches Entry Only

Great Lakes Jr. Gold Tour - Youth/College Bowling Showcase

When: June 19-20, 2021

Where: Thunderbowl Lanes  4200 Allen Rd. Allen Park Michigan  313-928-4688

All programs are invited to our annual Youth/College Showcase : Club, NAIA, NJCAA, NCAA

Maybe you attended last year and if you did you know how it worked, and the contacts

you made. If you didn't attend, let us explain a little more about our program. 


Our program Great Lakes Jr. Gold Tour (www.gljgt.org) is on a mission, to promote youth bowlers to Colleges and get

them seen by as many coaches all across the US and Canada. We have a  youth stats page on our website to

keep track of bowlers averages per events and season average of bowlers who bowl in our program.

We also travel, visiting High School events, conduct interviews, photos and videos of recruit-able bowlers.

We also offer a recruiting resource page on our website that bowlers can show coaches their posted

resume, photo, and action video. 

The status of your program is not important, if your a new program or 20 years

running, we can help, by promoting your program and exposing youth bowlers

to you to build a following base. This is what we do all year long. 


How this all works: 

As you sign up, we will list on our website that your program is attending, either

on one or both days, and we will post a workable link for the Youth to view, that's

great exposure for your college program. 

If your program is NCAA I-II status, we can still help promote your school.

Instead of attending the first day (Youth bowl in front of coaches) ,

( which could be a rule violation, check first with your school), you will be able to attend

the 2nd day, during the tournament play, and after you will be able to set up a table for 

the college meet/greet portion for the afternoon. We can still promote your attendance, 

for Sunday only.

 

Saturday ( Day 1):

We have 90 lanes, and will put one program/coach per lane across the house. We will 

have 43 lanes for Men, and 43 Lanes for Women. You will be able to select Men, Women

or both ( if available, may bring assistant coach). Coaches will be on the lanes with youths

in mini-squads of 3-4 bowlers per lane. Coaches will observe/interact with youth bowlers

for 15 minutes, then will have 10 minutes to talk about your program in front of youth

bowlers. Coaches will shift to the next pair of lanes while the youth stay on their pair of

lanes through out the day.  We will build in a short break and a longer lunch break.

(Schedule below)


Sunday (Day 2):

We will host a  youth 6 game tournament ( Jr. Gold Qualifier), in the morning. While the 

scores are tallied, the youth/parents will have the opportunity to meet/greet

with the college coaches at tables for the remainder of the afternoon. 


There will be a non-refundable $25.00 deposit to hold your spot, regardless

if you attend one or both days.  



You can also mail us a payment to avoid the pay pal fee.  

Printable Coaches Entry form

Or you can contact us and we will email one to you. 

Send payment to: GLJGT 150 Carleton Dr. S. Battle Creek Michigan 49017 


Again this is what we do for your program: 

1. We will create a list of colleges attending and adding your college link for

     youth bowlers and parents to view before attending.

2. Your program will have an opportunity to watch and interact with youth

    bowlers, right on the lanes, which is an amazing contact opportunity for

    both. 

3. Your program will have a table display for the meet/greet after the 6 game

    tournament on Sunday in the banquet room.   

4. You will have a partial contact list of all the bowlers attending this event

    emailed to you,  and a full contact list given to you at the event.
