High school bowling starting soon

The Cowichan Valley High School Bowling Program gets rolling next week, but it’s not too late to sign up.

The Cowichan Valley High School Bowling Program gets rolling next week, but it’s not too late to sign up, and it’s not unusual for new bowlers to start competing a few weeks in.

The after-school program at Duncan Lanes offers school-vs.-school competition with emphasis on sporting behaviour and etiquette.

Bowlers in the program have the opportunity not just to pursue the sport recreationally, but also to earn scholarships toward post-secondary education. There is also the chance to compete in tournaments all over the province and in the national championships.

The program is offered to Grades 8-12, competing in teams of three that can be all-male, all-female or mixed.

Fees are a $30 Canadian Tenpin Federation fee, plus $8.75 a week for three games.

Competition starts Nov. 2 at 4 p.m., but late registration is possible.

For more information visit Duncan Lanes at 2701 James St. or call coach Bob Linde at 250-715-1413.
