2016 Bowling Season

Area Tournaments Begin Oct. 15

Bowling SeasonThe Special Olympics Kentucky Bowling season runs August through December.  In August, more than 1,500 Special Olympics Bowlers and Unified partners begin their bowling season as they bowl weekly in order to improve their bowling skills and to obtain an accurate average.  Any athlete who wishes to qualify for the State Bowling Tournament must participate in a sanctioned Area level Tournament.  In order to qualify for an Area Tournament, he or she must submit a current average that includes at least 12 games.

Qualifying Area Level Tournaments are held throughout the state in October and early November. Bowling registration packets were mailed on August 6th. If you are a head coach and you have not received your packet list please contact Amanda Wade at 502-695-8222 or awade@soky.org as soon as possible.

The SOKY Bowling Program offers several formats of competition:  singles, doubles and unified (Special Olympics athlete paired with a partner without an intellectual disability).
