Unified Bowling

Unified Bowling became an NSAA sport during the 2016-17 school year. Unified Sports is based on the model of Special Olympics. Unified Bowling is a bowling team comprised of students with an intellectual disability (athletes) and students without an intellectual disability (partners). Each team is made up of 1 athlete and 2-4 partners. 3 team members bowl during each game. Games are bowled using the Baker’s format. The athlete bowls frames 1, 4, 7, and 10. The first partner bowls frames 2, 5, and 8. The second partner bowls frames 3, 6, and 9. It is a true team effort to get the most pins down. The highest total pinfall in a designated number of games is how a team wins.

The Unified Bowling Season is from mid October through the first week of December. It falls between the fall and winter sports season. Unified Bowling is the ONLY NSAA high school sport in which participants can be part of more than one sports team at the same time.
