Fall Leagues, Membership, and COVID concerns.
Traditionally league bowlers acquire their annual membership when joining a fall league. The GLCUSBC knows there are bowlers who are going to decide to sit out and not bowl during the 2020-2021 season while sharing they might consider joining a mid-season league or bowling in one of the association’s various tournaments.
Event rules are being updated to respect the legacy of participation in our association so that bowlers can bowl in 2020-2021 season tournaments all while not bowling during the current season in a certified league in our association.
Please note, you will still be required to become USBC certified members in order to bowl these events at the local, state, and national levels.
An easy option is to visit the website of the United States Bowling Congress directly! The USBC has provided a way for you to become a new member or renew an existing membership.
Additional Details about USBC Membership and the Join Now link
If the league you bowled in last year resumes bowling this season, talk to the league secretary. The league kit provided by the local association included a pre-printed membership card from your participation last season. You can update this card and provide payment to the league for submission to the Association Manager. This option works well if you think you might rejoin this league at some point during the season.
The local association also offers Unattached Membership you can purchase directly.
