All United States Bowling Congress members have an opportunity to
earn a spot on Team USA by competing in the USBC Team USA Trials/U.S. National Amateur Bowling Championships.
To be eligible for the U.S. Amateur portion of the event, a bowler must
not currently hold or have held a professional membership (PBA or PWBA)
in the preceding year. Also, anyone who has ever won a professional
title (regional, national or senior) as a professional is not eligible
to compete as an amateur.
USBC Team USA 2016 will consist of a minimum 12 men and 12 women:
- A maximum of up to five men will be selected by the National Selection Committee based on submitted resume from Team USA and/or Junior Team USA members within the last 10 years or the top 25 point list of the 2014-2015 Professional Bowlers Association Tour.
- A maximum of up to five women will be selected by the National Selection Committee based on submitted resume from a Team USA and/or Junior Team USA members within the last 10 years or the top 25 point list of the 2015 Professional Women’s Bowlers Association Tour.
- The top four men and four women finishers in the 2016 USBC Team USA Trials, based on ranking points, will earn automatic spots on Team USA 2016 while two additional men and two additional women will be selected by the National Selection Committee from the pool of players who compete at the 2016 Team Trials. The National Amateur champions also will earn a spot. If the champion already has earned a spot, that spot will be awarded to the next highest qualifier based on ranking points.
The process for determining Team USA allows for the selection of the country's top professional bowlers while also granting the opportunity to any USBC member a chance to earn a spot.
