High School Rules
Do you know what constitutes a legal bowling team lineup? Are you familiar with the Baker System? Would you know if you or your athletes are using a USBC-approved bowling ball during competition?
Understanding the rules is essential for coaches and athletes in all sports, including high school bowling. Below you will find suggested playing rules for high school bowling competition (adapted from USBC general playing rules) and helpful glossary of terms used in the sport of bowling. Important note: USBC does not govern high school bowling; individual states are responsible for governing their own programs. Click here for Rules.

Currently, certified volunteers from local bowling centers, pro shops and membership organizations are being utilized.
