The Future Stars Bowling Tour is a series of young bowler tournaments (20 and under as of August 1, 2019) conducted during the months of August, 2019 thru May, 2020. The tournaments are NOT held during the high school bowling season in Ohio.
Divisions offered this season will be as follows (age as of August 1, 2019):
- 12U (ages 11 and under)
- 15U (ages 12 to 15)
- 20U (ages 16 to 20)
**Please note that these are NOT Junior Gold divisions. Those divisions are governed by USBC rules.**
- Leading qualifiers will earn SMART awards based on the number of entries in the event.
- Kegel Challenge patterns will be used.
- Event participation points will remain at 5 points per event.
- Final four points will remain at 50, 25, 10 and 10 per event (as long as there is a final 4).
- Year end event will be held in Columbus, Ohio
As with all of our prior events, we will continue to award scholarships at the rate of 1 in 4. The cost to enter our events will be $60 for early entries. THERE WILL BE NO WALK IN FEE. Credit card payments will be subject to a $3 processing fee and will ONLY be taken prior to the event. Junior Gold memberships and qualifying will be available at all of our events subject to USBC availability and participation. At least 4 bowlers are required to conduct a Junior Gold qualifier.
Our entry fees are reasonable and our payouts are VERY good. $38 of each $60 entry fee is returned to the bowlers in the form of scholarships thru the SMART program. THE PAYOUT RATIO FOR EACH EVENT IS 1 IN 4. You will not find a better payout ratio anywhere. IF YOU MAKE A CUT, YOU WILL EARN SCHOLARSHIP MONEY. You won't make a cut and go home with nothing. Each of our events offers a Junior Gold qualifier (subject to USBC availability).
Events start at 10:00 am and are usually completed by 3:30 pm. This gives you plenty of time to get there (saving money on overnight hotels) and plenty of time to get home and enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
There are NO membership fees. There are NO walk-in fees. If you do pre-register and cannot make the event, your fees will be refunded. No questions asked. Just let us know you can't make it.
We believe that our tournament experience is one of the best around and we know our scholarship returns and pay ratios ARE the best around.
This tour is YOUR tour. If you have comments, questions or ways to make it better for YOU (the bowlers), contact us. You can email us or find us on Facebook. We will listen and do our very best to make this the best youth tour experience for YOU!
We hope to see you this season! Come on out to a Future Stars event...YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!
