Youth Bowling League Starting Back Up

38 0 18 Apr 2021

Hi Junior Bowlers and Parents!

Before I give this announcement… first of all, I would like to say I really do miss seeing all of you!  If you’re reading this, yes YOU!  It’s been an interesting year and I hope everyone is adapting accordingly and doing well.  With that said, I have some great news…

It has come to my attention that bowling leagues at Jewel City Bowl will be starting up again.  This Saturday, April 24th, 2021 at 9:30am, Jewel City Bowl will be having an “open house” giving the Juniors a chance to get a little practice in.  There will also be a meeting to go over the new rules and regulations that the league will need to follow.

The league will officially start on Saturday, May 1, 2021.

Jo Ann and Kimberly will be calling everyone to get a count on how many Juniors will be returning.  If you have any friends or family members that would like to join, please bring them along.

If you have any questions or concerns about the youth program, feel free to reach out to Kimberly or Jo Ann.  Their contact info is provided below.

On a side note, I recently moved about an hour outside of Los Angeles so I will no longer be coaching on Saturdays.  I will continue to do what I can for the league/program remotely but you all know you can call or email me if you ever need anything… bowling or non-bowling-related.  I wish all of you well, keep bowling, and have fun!

And don’t forget…

Saturday, April 24th at 9:30am, Jewel City Bowl
* Note:  Please enter through the back of the bowling alley (parking lot entrance)

Saturday, May 1, 2021 – Summer League officially starts

2020 Pepsi Tournament is Canceled

1k 0 12 Mar 2020

Hi Parents and Junior Bowlers... This update is to inform you that 2020 Pepsi Tournament has been officially cancelled.  See email from Anthony Guevara, our district director...


********** start **********

The California USBC Association Board of Directors voted to cancel the 2020 Pepsi Youth Championships due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). We understand that this is late notice, but the CUSBC is concerned for the safety of our tournament directors, the bowlers and their families. Pepsi checks have not been deposited yet so we can easily return them to each center within the week or shred them with permission.  This is an unfortunate situation as we know that this is the last year of youth eligibility for some bowlers and we know they were looking forward to competing.  The CA Youth State Championships to be held at Forest Lanes and the Diddy Watts Youth State Singles Challenge to be held at Rancho Bowl are not cancelled and will be re-evaluated in June. Thank you for your support to our youth events and we hope to see everyone out on the lanes very soon.


The California USBC Association Board of Directors met this evening to discuss the impact of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the events we have scheduled in the next few months.  Due to the potential negative impact of the virus on our bowlers, workers and attendees, we have made the following decisions:
  1. The Pepsi Youth Championships, both local and state, scheduled to begin March 14, 2020 through May 2, 2020 is cancelled. Refunds will be coordinated with the Pepsi Directors and the participating centers.
  2. The Helen Duval Veteran’s Tournament (BVL) to be held on March 28, 2020, is cancelled and will be rescheduled if possible at a later date.
  3. The Adult (Open & Women’s) State Championships to be held at Forest Lanes, scheduled to begin April 4, 2020 through June 28, 2020 is also cancelled.  Refunds are available to all bowlers.  Please contact Jennie Simpson, Tournament Director.
  4. The CUSBC Annual Meeting and Convention to be held in Fresno, CA scheduled for June 13-14, 2020 will remain scheduled until further notice.
***Personal note: I appreciate each center working with me over the last few months getting the district finals organized and ready. To those of you that were able to volunteer to be lane monitors, I appreciate your willingness. If you, or any one from you center has any question please feel free to reach out to me.
-Anthony Guevara
