The Youth Education Services (YES) Fund is seeking bowling centers around the country to help test a new concept for youth leagues.
When the YES Fund was created in 2010, an initial project was development of a new mainstream sports model for bowlers 12 years old and younger. This concept involves testing new team-based structures for competition along with the development of training and recruitment programs to attract volunteer coaches.
The YES Fund's pilot program leagues involve a format similar to other youth sports. Each team has four kids along with a volunteer coach. The teams hold a practice once a week before competing in league play. Teams are paired according to ability and there is no handicap involved in scoring.
