New Format – Combined with USBA Flight Tournament!
The 2016 Midwest College Combine will be held on December 11, 2016 at Mermaid St Paul, Minnesota. This year’s event will have a new location with an entirely new format.
College bowling coaches from the Midwest will be on-site to watch and analyze potential athletes to recruit for their college bowling programs. Bowlers will bowl in the USBA Flight Series Tournament so coaches can watch the bowlers throughout the day. Bowlers will bowl four games to determine flight positioning and then bowl an additional two games to determine the top four bowlers per flight for a step-ladder finals in each flight. All bowlers are guaranteed to bowl six games. Coaches will receive a roster with all the bowlers.
Seminars will go on throughout the day for parents to attend. This year’s speakers will be Billie Streufert, Executive Director of the Success Center at Augustana University, and Bryan Helland, Mental Trainer and Professional Archer.
