2024 Families Matter Tournament

Scotch Doubles

For the first time in several years, we were able to offer this SUPER fun tournament. This tournament is exclusive to the participants of the Saturday Morning Youth League and their families! Many of our kids have been waiting for us to bring it back and they were ready to go for the top spots in their divisions! The kids and their favorite adult family member pick up each other’s spares to claim fame! This was such a great success that we’re already planning the next one. Keep an eye on this page for updates!

HAVE IT ALL PARENT/CHILD CLUB

Let’s thaw out with some QUALITY FAMILY TIME this Spring and watch the smiles grow! Can you think of a better way to spend your Spring rainy nights?

Plus, your child will receive a brand new custom fitted bowling ball of her/his choice at the completion of the program, so you can continue your outings!

This past Summer season, we enlisted the help of our kiddos for the inspiration to our end-of-season T-Shirt……again!!  We enjoy getting the kids involved in such choices.  It’s quite the important decision, ya know.  This season, we had two entries that went above and beyond and were actually along the the “same wave”.  Evrett (Lane Shark) and Olivia (Alley Gator) created such similar pictures, that we decided to combine them and make one phenomenal shirt! This shirt is the epitome of what the summer league is!  It’s four amazing groups named by their age divisions: the Lane Sharks, Alley Gators, Guppies, and the Tadpoles.  We couldn’t have asked for anything better to represent our amazing kids, the stellar league that they create, as well as our establishment that wouldn’t exist without all of them!
