WHO WE ARE!
Wyoming Junior Bowlers Tour is a youth bowling tour for Wyoming and surrounding state’s youth bowlers to compete for thousands of dollars in scholarship every season on challenging sport shot oil patterns throughout various bowling centers in Wyoming. Our volunteers, families, sponsors, and proprietors are all dedicated to creating an environment where youth bowlers can learn and develop skills in a lifelong sport to prepare them for bowling regional and national youth tournaments, while earning scholarship money to further their education, making lifelong friends, and most importantly having fun.

Possibly. There is certain criteria that must be met in order for WJBT to send a qualifier from the U20 division.
First, you must be a current USBC member, as well as a current Junior Gold Member. Both memberships are available here at www.BOWL.com through the USBC.
Second, we must have at least 5, U20 participants signed up for the qualifier for us to be able to send one qualifier.
In conclusion, if both of those criteria are met, then yes, WJBT can send a qualified U20 bowler to the 2022 Junior Gold Competion.

Yes! As long as the internet in the bowling center is working, and our Facebook page is working, we will be LIVE! Click here to take you there anytime during an event!

Any current youth member of the USBC with their Junior Gold Membership who is U12-U18 can qualify for an additional fee of $40. The divisions will be based on the number of entries in each division. For more information, please see the "Rules" tab, or send us a message through the "Contacts" tab.
WHAT OIL PATTERN DO WE BOWL ON?
At WJBT we are very passionate about getting all our Youth bowlers prepared, not just for Junior Gold, but for their futures in bowling. Many of our youth bowlers have been looked at by college coaches. This is a very important part of their future. That is why we bowl on a nationally recognized sport shot oil pattern at each stop. We are then very strict about keeping the identy of the pattern a secret until after the completion of the tournament. This requires each bowler to figure out how to read the lane pattern, which ball to use, and make adjusments as lane conditions change throughtout the tourneament. This is why WJBT believes that bowling is as much a SPORT as any other, and these atheletes are proving to us that they are VERY capable of competing on levels beyond WJBT! To see all the patterns so far this season, check out the "Sport Shot Oil Pattern" tab!
IS THERE A DRESS CODE?
Yes! At WJBT we take the sport of bowling very seriously. We believe that every participant should come dressed in a bowling uniform. With that said, we do point out what that should look like in our rules. You can check that out by clicking on the "Rules" tab, or you can click on the "Dress Code" tab to see pictures of what is allowed.
WHAT KIND OF PAYMENTS DO YOU ACCEPT?
We currently accept cash and check. Checks must be made out to WJBT. Checks returned NSF will be charged the full amount of the check plus any bank fees WJBT incurs. All future payments will then be required in cash. We DO NOT accept credit/debit cards at this time.
