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.
