Get Ready for the 2018 Bowling Season

Special Olympics BowlingThe Special Olympics Kentucky Bowling season runs August through December.  In August, more than 1,200 Special Olympics Bowlers began 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.

The following events are offered at the Area and State level – singles, ramp assisted, ramp unassisted and unified bowling. For singles, ramp assisted and ramp unassisted an eight-game average is required for each athlete to register for Area tournaments. For Unified bowling a 4 game Bakers average is required to register for Area tournaments. Qualifying Area Level Tournaments are held throughout the state in October and early November.
