Bowlers and parents, welcome to the Junior Collegiate Tour (JCT)!!!
If you are interested in having fun, meeting new people, and bowling competitively, while gaining maximum exposure to colleges and universities for the purpose of obtaining a bowling scholarship, you have come to the right place. The Junior Collegiate Tour was designed to showcase your skills bowling on sport patterns and demonstrate your ability to win competing in head to head match-ups. The JCT uses a ranking system (Warr Ranks) that analyzes your statistics (youth league AVG., Tour AVG., Tour strike%, Tour spare%, Tour clean games and AVG. tour placement) and compares how you match-up to the other bowlers in your division across the region; effectively creating your ranking. A bowler must compete in at least three (3) tournaments in a region, within a season to qualify for an official ranking. College scouts and coaches nationwide, will utilize the rankings as a indicator to determine whether to recruit you; therefore, bring your best!
