USBC Roll ‘N Grow

Children age 7 and under now have a United States Bowling Congress membership designed specifically for them. The new USBC Roll ‘N Grow membership provides benefits for young bowlers in regular or bumper leagues of any duration at an affordable price.

“With special awards and much more, Roll ‘N Grow memberships make bowling fun for young kids who are new to the sport,” International Bowling Campus Director of Youth Development Chad Murphy said. “It’s a perfect fit for short duration leagues or bumper leagues. We encourage youth leagues that may not have certified their youngest bowlers in the past to take a look at what Roll ‘N Grow has to offer.”

The new Roll ‘N Grow membership is $8 and has no restriction on league duration. The benefits include:
  • USBC Youth Membership card
  • USBC tournament eligibility
  • League award emblems
  • USBC Special Achievement Awards
  • A DVD of the cartoon series Bowlopolis
  • An issue of Bowlopolis The Mag magazine
  • Bowlopolis progress card with award stickers
  • Bowlopolis Kids Club
  • USBC certified average (minimum of 12 games for non-bumper competition)
“We know that children 7 and under love the game and often associate bowling with birthday parties,” Murphy said. “Roll ‘N Grow membership provides the tools to give kids’ leagues a party feel while teaching them about the sport so they will become lifelong bowlers.”

Bowling centers and associations may start offering Roll ‘N Grow memberships for leagues on August 1, 2011. In June, centers will receive a youth marketing package with additional information about all USBC Youth membership products including Roll ‘N Grow. The package also includes a sample of the newly redesigned USBC Youth jersey which is included as part of USBC Youth Standard membership.

USBC will continue to offer Youth Basic membership for $5 ($1 local processing) and Youth Standard for $17 ($2 local processing, 50 cents state fee). The Roll ‘N Grow membership includes a $1 local processing fee.
