For those of you that missed Opening Ceremonies, we were very privileged to have Andrew Hall speak on the "IMPORTANCE OF SPORTSMANSHIP". Sportsmanship is very important in any sport and in life itself.  The conduct and attitude one portrays winning or losing shows character and Andrew has consistently delivered this message.   I have personally  had the honor of knowing Andrew and have so much RESPECT for all that he has accomplished in his bowling and personal career.  He had a very mature attitude towards the game of bowling, his peers and those that he encounters.  Keep up the good work and good luck with all your future endeavors! ~ Debby

 

Our final weekend of the State Tournament Championships on May 6 & 7th was a huge success!  Thank you to Charlie and the staff at Wonder Bowl.  Also, big thank you to all those that contributed to the ways and means table.   Most importantly, thank you to the MAUSBCYA board and Lauren Eramo, tournament director for all the continued support and dedication to the youth of Massachusetts.

 TO ALL:

 ***BOWLERS, PARENTS & PROGRAM DIRECTORS***
The MAUSBCYA board works very hard on preparing tournaments for our children.  Please be respectful of time constraints.  We require all bowlers to be at the tournament site 1 hour prior to scheduled tournament time, unless application/confirmations state otherwise.  Confirmations of times and dates are sent out well before tournaments.  If there is an issue or you cannot be there, please make sure someone is notified immediately (member of the team, your program director, the bowling center or the tournament director).  We must make the necessary changes prior to the tournament start time as it is unfair the hold up the rest of the tournament bowlers.  If we all work together, we can achieve success!
Thank you for your attention in this matter.

ALL ASSOCIATION MANAGERS:

January 1st averages must be submitted before any State Tournaments applications can be processed.

Our current board consists of five officers, nine directors and several youth reps.  We as a board come from different parts of the state, have a broad spectrum of personalities and have a range of bowling experience.  Our board is a dedicated group who meets on different occasions to come up with fun and exciting ways to promote our youth and future bowlers.  The Massachusetts State USBC board offers many tournaments and awards throughout the year. 

We welcome all children from the ages of 3-19.  We teach and encourage fun and friendly competition while enforcing sportsmanship.
