Bowling Club

The club team practices with the varsity students, but does not compete against other schools. If an individual is looking just to come out and bowl without any coaching, they are welcome to do so. Individuals looking to improve their game and learn more about the game to be competitive can also chose that route. Members of the club may try out for varsity and with improvement may earn their way onto the varsity team next school year. Practice is free, and no one is required to have any equipment of their own.
