Bowls RoarFest Youth Open Starts In








Bowls Alberta Head Coaches and the CalgaryLawn Bowling club are preparing to welcome youth and young adults ages 14-25 for an inaugural and unique three-day, prized filled, youth competition!

RoarFest was created with input from youth players and coaches across Canada to ensure
the event provides intense competition, player development, and great camaraderie!
Registration fees will be $50 per player and all fees will go back as prize money along
with donated and sponsorship funds. We have two sponsors so far and are working on
more…help out if you can!

Register as a pairs team, or individually; regardless of gender, or provincial home; by age
category; and into either a “Development” or “Competition” (High Performance) category.

“Development” may have played at a Bowls Canada or Bowls US Youth Championship,
but never won a medal. All players are guaranteed 10 games in total! The number of
registered teams and players will determine the formats of the games.

Singles — Three games per player (two 7 end four bowl sets with 1.5 hour limit) PLUS
one playoff game on the final day.

Pairs — Four games (10 end, three bowl games with 1.5 hour limit) PLUS two playoff
games per team on the final day.
