Youth/Collegiate Bowling

Ken Abner, Founder of Skilz Athletics, and K.T. Johnson, Youth Business Manager, both semi-professional bowlers, identified the need for exposure to bowling opportunities for Southern region youth/collegiate bowlers. Beginning in August 2013, Skilz Athletics Tournament Bowling will provide an opportunity for Youth/Collegiate bowlers to compete.

Not only will youth/collegiate bowling help provide extracurricular activities, but it will help participants bank money for college. Under the United States Bowling Congress, prize funds for competitive youth/collegiate bowlers are placed in SMART accounts. SMART, which stands for Scholarship Management and Accounting Reports for Tenpins, is a program designed to help associations and organizations set up, manage and disburse youth bowling scholarship funds. In addition, colleges and universities scout for bowlers and provide millions of dollars in scholarship money to student-athletes. This will also open the door for local youth bowlers to be seen by college recruiters.

In order to meet this need in the local community, Skilz Athletics is developing partnerships with local businesses, bowling enthusiasts and philanthropist to fund the program. Below is a list of sponsorship opportunities. If you would like to develop a streamlined package for your business, please contact K.T. Johnson via phone 704-559-9304 or by email b.mgmt.skilzathletics@gmail.com.
