2019 Bowling Season
Bowling is one of the fastest growing Special Olympics sports. Although there are some modifications made for athletes with physical disabilities, most athletes compete under the same rules and circumstances as athletes on a professional tour. In addition to offering traditional singles, athletes can participate in Unified Sports® doubles. Unified Sports® is a program that assigns Special Olympics athletes and partners without intellectual disabilities to the same teams for training and competition.

In an effort to improve athletes’ and volunteers’ experience and minimize lane issues during competition, we will not be bowling “league style.”
Divisions are based on qualifying scores submitted on registrations. Therefore, a handicap is not needed for competition.
Unified Doubles Ramp
Athletes can register for both Singles AND Unified Doubles.
– Athletes who register for Ramp Bowling and need an assistant may have an assistant with them at the lane. When registering, please note if an assistant is needed.
